HP Laptop nx6320 1GB RAM 1hr 50 mins - cleanup reclaimed ~800mb - running Vista Business

3 pcs all P4 2GB RAM ran in just under an hour - didn't check the cleanup savings - all running Vista Business.

1 laptop running Vista Ultimate refused to run the service pack as it said it didn't have right language pack (English) installed - which is bollocks but there ya go - cant argue with that. I will troubleshoot it later.

Vista 64 box not installed yet, the download of the service pack failed half way through - trying again now.

I haven't yet upgraded my main work machine - that's a job for this afternoon.
