Microsoft says Vista SP1 Drivers Not Malfunctioning

Microsoft has clarified that the phased rollout of Vista's first service pack was not due to malfunctioning drivers, but because of issues that arose when these device drivers were reinstalled during the SP1 update process.

Mike Nash from Microsoft's Windows product management group said that SP1 would be rolled out gradually due to a driver problem Microsoft uncovered during the testing phase. He also said it "was an issue with the way the device drivers were reinstalled during the SP1 update process, not with the drivers themselves."

Microsoft on Friday made SP1 RTM available to individuals and companies who participated in the SP1 beta program. By week's end, Microsoft will release the English version of Vista SP1 available to volume licensing customers and other languages will be added soon.
