Before the release of Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows Vista, Microsoft promised to disable several hacks that pirates could use to circumvent its copy protection mechanisms. The cracks targeted by Microsoft included the infamous BIOS emulation crack. However, days after Vista SP1 release, a group from the warez scene claims to have cracked SP1's copy protection enhancements.
The release comes from the well known scene group BIE. They have a long history of cracking MS programs and BIE cracks are famous for displaying message 'please wait patiently while BIE cracks Billy's ass' during cracking process. The group has released a pirated version of Vista which has Service Pack 1 integrated.
