Do you consider it a bad idea to update to SP1?

hi peter99co...
in my particular case it is a bad idea ...as the laptop that has vista on totally locked up when trying to install sp1....it got to the configuring updates stage 1 of three ...restarted and gave me an error message ,telling me i had to repair windows due to a software fault.
took me two days to get it running again ,mostly due to my lack of knowledge re:vista +a laptop with a repair system that just does not work (had to borrow a vista dvd to do the repair ..)but it all adds to the learning experience .
if you're not confident that you can repair or do not have the dvd then my advice would be to leave it on hold for the time being .only my opinion Dave.
