Problems with SQL Server 2005 on Windows Vista Beta 2

I received the following question from a member of the SQL Server Ireland User Group ( :
Has anybody tried this? I run a dev machine that was XP SP2 with SQL 2005 installed on it. When I upgraded to Vista (Probably should have done a clean install but you would think upgrade would be sorted) SQL 2k5 stopped working. Supposedly installing SP1 for SQL 2k5 will fix the issue but when I try to install the SP1 it cannot continue as it cannot authenicate with SQL…

I had hope that someone might have been able to give him some more positive news but the short answers appears to be NO!

SQL Server 2005 should be upgraded to Service Pack 1 BEFORE upgrading your machine to Windows Vista.
