I like to use a cool utility calle System Rescue CD.

You can download it from: http://www.sysresccd.org

You want to download the 'Stable version for x86'. The filename should be: systemrescuecd-x86-1.1.5.iso
Burn the downloaded .ISO image to a CD using a utility such as Nero, then boot your computer from that CD exactly the same way you'd boot from the Windows CD.

Just hit enter at all the prompts to accept the default values. Once you get to the command line, you should see instructions for running 'GParted'. You should follow those instructions. I think you just have to type:

gparted

At the command line, but you may have to do some other step first. This will run a graphical partition utility you can use to delete your Windows Vista partition.

Windows problem


How have you tried, just by going to windows update and letting it run?
Does it give you any errors?

You can try downloading SP2 directly to the P.C. then install it from the saved file.

Will windows let you just skip and go straight to SP3?

make sure you have all the other updates first, then try installing SP2
