    That link is for the 5 language edition [aka. Wave 0] of Vista/Server 2008 SP2 for x86 systems.

    yup. though it's only the 5 language edition of SP2.

    for those using x64 based systems of Vista use this link:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...FamilyID=656c9d4a-55ec-4972-a0d7-b1a6fedf51a7

    Microsoft has recently released the "all language" [Wave 1] version of Vista/Server 2008 SP2 to MSDN/Technet subscribers on May 22. That edition of SP2 will be publicly available to MS Download Center in late June.

    Earlier today, I did get a chance to install the 5 language standalone version of SP2 onto my mom's Dell laptop and it worked great.

    the integrated or slipstreamed SP2 could be available to the public later this year (late summer or early fall) or whenever Microsoft finalizes Windows 7.
    for those who have paid MSDN/Technet subscriptions, the slipstreamed Vista SP2 DVD image files are available at the MSDN/Technet subscription downloads pages.

    Microsoft has posted Vista Service Pack 2 downloads for all languages on the evening of June 30.

    Vista SP2 all language standalone x86 edition:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...06-2431-4d00-afa3-99ff6f22448d&displaylang=en

    Vista SP2 all language standalone x64 edition:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...26-03d4-488c-8f26-074800c55bc3&displaylang=en

    Vista SP2 all language DVD iso image:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...49-1a3a-4336-ade6-32e34a448608&displaylang=en

    enjoy downloading & installing Vista SP2! :nervous:
