Windows 2000 Microcode Update Driver Patch

Recommended Posts

A Microsoft Knowledge Base article existed that had a link or information to download a patch for Windows 2000 family operating systems that contained a newer version of "update.sys", the Intel Microcode Update Device driver (driver used to load microcode into CPU, not system EEPROM), than what came with Windows 2000 Service Pack 4.

I cannot seem to find the article with the information.

I would appreciate assistance in determining where the article may be found.

Not sure about that article, but over here...

...it appears that somebody hacked the Win2k version of update.sys to include all the recent additions from XP SP3:

Thank you bacon_boy.

I have tried the patch. I did not think the patch would work because I believed that after installation of the new "update.sys", System File Checker would replace (the patch did not come with a .CAT file).

The patch updated "update.sys" without a problemand System File Checker did not revert "update.sys".

It may be possible to get new cumulative security updates for Internet Explorer 6 with SP1 working on Windows XP with Service Pack 1 by using the Internet Explorer 6 with SP1 meant for Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 (Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 and Widows XP with Service Pack 1 use the same binaries and version for Internet Explorer 6 with SP1; official support for Windows XP with Service Pack 1 has been discontinued).
