    We have seen during last year many complaints about Vista asking for
    reactivation after just updating a hard disk driver.
    Does anybody know whether this sensitivity to hardware (or driver) changes
    has been eased with SP1 or not?
    RFM (Reduced Functionality Mode) is now "lighter" than the pre-SP1 era and I
    was wondering whether something similar happens with the reactivation
    triggering level.
    Just being curious on a cloudy Thursday morning.

  2. I have not seen any reports of reactivation being required after installing

    That was not my point.
    What I mean is, after applying SP1, will Vista still be so "picky" about
    minor changes of new hardware and/or new drivers (post-SP1)?

  4. I didn't see any mention in the release notes so I don't know how we will
    know except by giving it time.

    Hi Carlos:
    For some reason my reply was left off my post. I am running Vista
    Ultimate 64 bit with SP1 and just installed a PCIE video card to replace
    onboard graphics and a 5th hard drive and Vista didn't seem to mind the
    update. My Windows Experience Rating went up to 5.5 and I didn't even have
    to talk to someone in Asia to get it done! WHOOPIE! tucson
