I just got my MS hotfix list up-to-date with bristols' page, indeed I need some support.
  • KB921606
    Although an italian official update does exist (office2000-KB921606-FullFile-ITA.exe), it doesn't install since it complains I miss Office2000 :( (which BTW is true) but... is there a way for extracting `Msconv97.dll' and put it into REPLACE subdir?
  • KB835730
    In order to slipstream this update, a registry fix has to be provided into HFSVCPACK. My question is: which registry fix? The article KB835730 suggests a fix but in the most left column in bristols' page he links to a different article (KB830407) in which a different fix is explained, why? [Incidentally, the KB835730 fix is identical to the one suggested into KB891861, which in turn points to KB919521]
  • MDAC 2.8SP1
    I really would be able to integrate MDAC2.81 into my slipstreamed win2k and this can be done for the most, since many updates are multilanguage, but MDAC281-KB927779-v2-x86-ENU.exe is english only. How can the same package be built for ita?

Thanks anyone!
And BTW, thank you for your big effort, guys! :thumbup

Hello brutus :)

1. Msconv97.dll is language neutral so you should just use the English update. For slipstreaming you don't need to change anything but if you want to install it in Italian Windows you may need to extract it, open update.inf and change

LanguageType = %LangTypeValue%
to
LanguageType = 0x0

2. It's the same fix as KB919521. I don't know if you still use the Italian UR2 but if you do then the same fix is included there too.

3. Yes, I think so ;) I don't have enough time to test it here but you should download the unofficial KB927779-v2 (ENU) and two Italian official updates - KB927779 for MDAC 2.81 & KB927779 for MDAC 2.53. Next you should replace the English files with the Italian ones, and finally use updatever.cmd to update the update.ver info.

Ooops! Too late, bristols just updated his page and this package seems to be gone :(

Great!
Updated `update.inf' also! :yes:

Now, about mdac, I'm in the stage of unpacking both your mdac281 and mdac253 & 281 (ita versions). Are the updated binaries into `update' subdir or into `files' subdir?

And when I have replaced these binaries, how will I get a single exe package again? Which tool am I missing? Perhaps PE Tool?

Sorry for my newbie questions, I really don't know how MS updates actually work.

You should unpack the unofficial English update and replace only MDAC files (in the files folder if I'm correct) with their Italian counterparts :)

To repack you can use this method.

Hey! It's very simple... and it WORKS! :yes:
Thank you very muck tomasz!

Installation went almost perfect (apart from update KB971913 which didn't install and during installation shows a help box... I'll check this) and most important, KB921606 and KB927779-v2 ita custom updates were installed the right way! (mmhh, I think I can provide a link to them as well).

Now, some other minor issues have to be fixed but... I'll fix these tomorrow... :zzz:

Now, almost everything went ok, I'm in the stage of testing my shiny new win2k disc image. I slipstreamed dotNet2.0sp2 via the silentdotnetmaker , directx9 updates appear ok and mdac components are the latest as well.
Well, while doing this, still I'm stuck at two single issues.
  • I would like to integrate SATA support into my disc image. Just tried this with driverpack base but it breaks my installation. I know there is the universal driver uniata.sys which appears to be the simplest more flexible solution. Did anyone used it? Is it simple as it seems? and, most important, does it work?
  • I'm in the mood of removing IE at all, most pages show in detail the needed steps. Well, there are actually too many pages saying that. Can anyone point me to a working procedure?

For .NET Framework I recommend OnePiece's True Addons (.NET 1.1 & .NET 2.0) as they are the only ones that can be integrated directly (no T-13 installer). Their installation process is also much faster. They're compatible with HFSLIP too (HFAAO folder).

1. I don't really know that much about UniATA but I'd suggest selecting 2K compatible drivers only from the DriverPacks package and integrating them through nLite.
2. FDV fileset is probably the best method of removing IE from W2K. I'm not sure if it's compatible with other language versions of Windows but you should give it a try. Unfortunately his site doesn't work at the moment so I'm linking to the Google cache ;)

Thank you tomasz :)
About sata support, the latest run of driverpack base worked like a charm when just integrating sata drivers for so called `text mode' install. Now everything goes smooth during OS install but I actually can't tell why :P
And, about IE removal... I gave up and kept it. The howto is indeed clear and detailed but I'm too lazy now for jumping into a trial-and-error procedure... after all, an OS installed into a VM will never reach the internet, won't it?
