Theoretically, like previous SP updates for windows stuff, at the point of install a Restore-Point is created IF and it's a big IF, ur system is setup for restore points. I would create a restore point too.

Theory here is, as with all of them, u can "roll-back". Usually a simple uninstall from Add/Remove will do it.

Remember however, this is a beta. And being a microsoft beta, I'd make a freakin image !

Any different in terms of visuals?

Or is it all core-based changes.

And how does gaming feel?

Any improvements?

I are going to install it for x64 and then come back and report. My comp keeps hanging for some reason, soooo...this might fix it.

Also, got GTA 4 to play, so thats pretty intensive on the old beast, so I'll let you guys know if i see any improvements, highly doubt anything will change. rofl

The best thing to do before installing SP2 is install Acronis True Image and backup your Windows system with it. If the SP2 doesnt agree with your rig you can then return your Windows install to the way it was before the SP2 install.

Well, its installed and I havent noticed any difference. I must say though, I seem to handle GTA 4 better now. A few more FPS. Dont know if is just a sort of placebo effect or if the OS is running a tad smoother.

Worth downloading though if only to experiment. Didnt take long at all to install either..
