Vista 64 Home Premium SP2 does not show in Windows Update

I have recently purchased a Dell Studio 540 that came with Vista 64 Home Premium SP1

After performing all the updates that had been shown, Windows Update does not show SP2 or any other type of OS updates.   I installed Office Pro 2007 last night, and it pulled down the Office Updates without a problem.

I have gone through a whole bunch of MS KBs.   The only thing I am wondering is if Dell uses vLite to create the images because that is the only remaning problem that I have found that could be causing the problem.

I am wondering if anyone else has experienced a similar problem and has simply downloaded and installed SP2 manually?

Thanks

I don't think Dell use vLite.


Try System Update Readiness Tool wich will hopefully tell why updates not showing.
