Vista SP1 Has An Ooops Moment

Vista Service Pack 1 won't work with certain drivers for commonly available components such as the Intel 945G chip set, or the Realtek High Definition audio driver.  The complete list is here.  Microsoft recommends updating drivers before installing SP1.  This should be interesting.  For example, I attempted to upgrade the Realtek audio driver from version 6.01.5436 to a version later than 6.01.6242 using the "Update Driver" option on the device property sheet.  Windows searched online and said the driver was up to date.  Really?  The Realtek web site was not very helpful either.  We'll see if this problem still exists when SP1 becomes available for general download.
