Problem With SQL Server 2005 on Vista Beta2
So you've been through the throws of building a Vista Beta 2 installation and boy it looks good. Maybe a couple of missing drivers to hunt down but otherwise all that Vista goodness.
So now you want to install some developer tools and start to play with those new foundation services.
The good news is that Microsoft have done a really good job and Visual Studio 2005 Standard and Team System will both install pretty clean.
The only problem comes when installing SQL Server 2005 (any version). The solution is to install SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 1 which you can get from those helpfull people here: http://www.microsoft.com/sql/sp1.mspx.
