I'd guess it's the registry fix mentioned in KB919521:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\HAL]
"14140000FFFFFFFF"=dword:00000010
The REG file can be downloaded from my website, together with UR1 (KB891861).

Hi tomasz86, when you “add a new HFSLIP section” to your website, do you plan to update HFSLIP and / or UUR with blackwingcat’s latest kernel?

Yes, of course! I just want to make sure that everything functions 100% correctly with the official updates and hotfixes first, and then move on to the unofficial packages.

You can expect frequent updates in the next few days. I'll try to update the post #775 when I'm done with something. Right now I've just finished tidying up the Download Archive.

I've updated the website again - removed the Microsoft Update section (check the changelog for explanation) and fixed some minor bugs.

I'm also working on HFSLIP. I've fixed a few issues when it's used in newer versions of Windows, such as running as administrator, using PEChecksum instead of ModifyPE and several Windows 2000 specific problems:

  • modyfing SETUPREG.HIV with reg.exe to add 48-bit LBA support (a bunch of useless log files were added to the source)
  • properly unpacking wmfdist.exe from KB891122 (the installer didn't run at all)
  • slipstreaming the newest Digital certificates (rvkroots.exe) update whose installer cannot run in Windows 2000 (but the files inside are compatible)

At the moment I want to make sure that my HFSLIP package can be used to prepare a fully updated Windows 2000 source with all the official updates slipstreamed. I also want it to run in any version of Windows from 2000 to 10 so that you don't need to use a VM just to use HFSLIP (if your host OS is Vista or newer).

I've added one new XP update for WMP9 which can be slipstreamed. I've also discovered some issues in the current list of WMP9 updates & codecs. There are at least several more WMP9 updates to add. Especially when it comes to the WMP codecs, it's one big mess as far as file versioning goes.

My custom HFSLIP package seems to work well - no issues with slipstreaming all official updates (tested in Windows 2000 and Windows 7 x64 as hosts). I shall be able to upload a test package in the next few days.

I've managed to modify HFSLIP in order to slipstream XP/2003 into Windows 2000. It will now be possible to use those updates and add the updated files to the Windows 2000 source. There seem to exist at least a few of such updates whose files are compatible (and this is without any extended kernel, just vanilla Win2K!).
 
Before messing around with the XP/2003 files and WMP9 related material I've decided to officially update my website under http://windows2000.tk (without "/new"). I now need to add an HFSLIP section and prepare the newly modified HFSLIP script for public download. I'm now calling it HFSLIP2000. Despite the name I haven't done anything to break the XP/2003 compatibility but also haven't tested it with them. The script is fully targeted at Windows 2000 though.

 

This new HFSLIP script will be required to slipstream the new updates.

It does work in Microsoft Edge here. Can you tell me what exactly happens when you try to open the site? Can you show me a screen shot?

I have just uploaded the first new HFSLIP package. You can find it in the Download Archive under Unofficial -> HFSLIP. The package is English only and covers all updates listed currently on my website. A test version of my modified HFSLIP 2000 script is included there too.

 

Just copy your Windows 2000 files into the SOURCE folder and run the script. Use "run as administrator" if you are running the script in Windows Vista or newer.

 

PS Server only updates are included in the package as well and the files are slipstreamed but Windows 2000 Professional won't use them. It's easier tor me to prepare one package for all editions of Win2K rather than separate ones.

 

At the moment I'm fixing my website to look better in older IEs, and I'm planning to add more XP/2003 updates to the lists together with the HFSLIP 2000 script.

Quite a “contrast” with the old HFSLIP…

I started testing your HFSLIP 2000, and lo and behold…I can actually “behold” it now!  Thanks for changing HFSLIP’s “two shades of gray” color scheme, I definitely won’t miss that.  Nice.

Big update today!

  • HFSLIP 2000 is officially available to download. At the moment it's not much different from the original HFSLIP. The main features are slipstreaming XP/2003 updates into Win2K and ability to run in newer Windows as administrator. I've also fixed a few other bugs. I'll try to add a detailed explanation of all the features later on.
  • Thanks to HFSLIP 2000 I've added a lot of Windows XP updates to the list. There are still more left but they will require more extensive testing while these ones "just" work.
  • Fixed my website to look better in IE5/6.

Check http://windows2000.tk
 
I've also uploaded a new HFSLIP package with all the updates included. As always, available in the Download Archive. By the way, I'm still playing around withe the folder structure in the Archive so don't be surprised if there are frequent changes.

Thank you! :) I've also never liked the original colour scheme and always changed it to something else.

Is the HFSLIP 2000 download supposed to be only 478 KB?

Yes! It's just the script with a few required tools.

 

You can find the full HFSLIP package in the other folder. That download is 498 MB.

I was wondering, as you update UURollup-is there anyway to fix the issue where comodo firewall version 2.4.18.184 isn't disabled when you install it.  That's a problem I've had in the past, and while other firewalls like Outpost 2009 seem to work fine-testing websites I've used to check it out seem to indicate Comodo the more secure of the two.

Another big update!
 
Nine Windows XP updates have been added to the list (check the changelog). I've updated the full HFSLIP package. I've also made some cosmetic changes to the website (the table with updates is now a little bit wider).
 
I've analysed all XP updates listed at http://xdot.tk and in POSReady 2009 Updates Addon. I still need to re-check http://hfslip.altervista.org/updatelist.htm if there are any more compatible updates.

Thank you for informing me about the problem! I'll try to check it when I start working on UURollup.

One more update!

  • Added twelve new updates and hotfixes.
  • Updated HFSLIP 2000 to version 1.0.1.
  • A new HFSLIP full package is also available to download.

What's important is that some of the newly added XP / 2003 updates were previously available as unofficial updates. Now, with HFSLIP 2000, it's possible to slipstream them directly.

 

Check the changelog for details.

Wow, Tomasz, I wonder just how far this can go?  If your success in direct-porting (or whatever you would call it) these XP updates continues, when you get around to working on W2k Pro UURollup, you may find…there’s not much left to do!

I've already thought about this :) I want to add all Windows XP / 2003 updates which install files that itself are 100% compatible with Windows 2000. I think there are not many left.

 

UURollup should only cover those which require other unofficial files (BWC kernel, etc.) to work. Even then it might be actually better to have a "core" version of UURollup and just slipstream those XP/ 2003 updates directly. Doing so would greatly simplify the whole process, especially when it comes to maintenance. The drawback would obviously be impossibility to install them manually in a running system.

Thank you so much for providing these updates for an excellent operating system.  Your outstanding work to keep it going after sixteen years is fantastic. Compared to XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10, it runs on half the processes and services as the others do.  Great Job and all of us that still use the OS find that it is still relevant in today's computing environments with outdated and otherwise useless machines that will be thrown away.  What you have done should be the envy of any Linux programmer, even though they have come a long way.with open source.

tomasz86 - Best of luck porting the slip.  As a background, hfslip started as a w2k only project and expanded into xp.  One thing I found particularly useful was the hfcleanup.  Using hfcleanup, the source can be reduced pretty good thus providing an OS with very little overhead.  It worked great for me back in the day.  Regarding the wm codecs (and codecs in general), they were a pain.  Too many versions and variations of wm codecs. Another oddity was that the slip discovered many msft hotfix errors thanks to the other-than english testers.  Testing the slip out now should be much faster with today's machines.  Again, best of luck.
