New HDD New Install Vista & SP2

OK... have got my nice new (secondhand/refurbished) hard drive in my laptop.... have installed Windows Vista Home Premium from my original CD supplied with the Laptop. and got all my drivers loaded up too... installed Firefox, and Thunderbird, and Ghostrey, and a couple of other addons... and so here I am on the internet only 2 hours !... from start to here...
now... Already I have shut down a couple of times, but I still have the Vista SP2 CD to load up... question is... it is dated  December 2009, so I am wondering if there has been an SP3. since then... Should I install the SP2...... or should I just wait until Windows logs in and downloads all the updates from 2008 to now?

SP2 is the latest but you need to have installed SP1 first
It is very doubtful there will be a SP3

Vista SP3; that would be Windows 7  Grin

If you haven't found it already, you can get  SP1 from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935791#Download
Then use your CD copy of SP2.  Smiley
