Some how this got by me. There is an SP2 for 2003 and XP x64. At this time it is in RC.
I recently started having issues that were not resolving. This after 19 months virtually trouble free in XP x64. I installed this SP2.

and now iTunes works again in x64. And everything seems to be snappier like it used to be.

I give this the thumbs up :friends:

yeah, yeah, yeah. Not everyone has been so lucky with Vista. So my triple boot plans are on hold until I can deal ($) with some hardware issues. In the meantime this Service Pack 2 has made my life "nice" again. :friends:

Not on the list is Vista ultimate is a true pile of dung! :chriso: I broke down and bought a copy of V Ultimate OEM yesterday simply because I wanted one DX10 machine. Nooo! After success with the beta's and RTM on VIA and 975 chipsets, I tried installing on a DFI Infinity 965 with a Q6600. No joy! 8 attemps failed and 6 hours were wasted. Ubuntu 64 and X64 install just fine. No issues with stress tests in either. If Vista doesn't install on another mobo/ Q6600 combo, adios Vista. Long live x64 SP2!!!! :177289i5o3snv8uw: :chriso:

For real though, every time I install Vista I get rid of it within a day. It's poop.
