I have a computer with the Vista Home Premium OS installed. When I check my computer properties it lists SP2 as being installed but I cannot find any sign of SP1 on my computer. I have searched through my installed updates via my Control Panel's Programs and Features and there is no listing there. I have reinstalled my OS several times over the years which makes me wonder if I could have lost SP1 during one of the reinstalls.
Is it possible for me to have SP2 installedwithoutt SP1 as a part of my OS?

This is driving an already "nut case" even more so. Please help!! :crazy:

Service Packs are cumulative. If sp2 is installed then sp1 is also installed.

I have Vista Home Premium SP2 and you need to install SP1 before you can install SP2 and there will be no references to SP1 as Allan says.

You know what? You're absolutely correct. Vista SP2 was the first one that was NOT cumulative and indeed you do need SP1 first. I apologize for my error (making a lot lately :( ).
