@NotVeryNice - You cannot - I'm fixing the DOS setup problem at the moment (the "WINNT.EXE" problem mentioned in the other threads). I'd rather not release anything with any known bugs :) And the solution is unfortunately not as simple as suggested.

I'll release my personal December edition of the ancient USP 5.0 too - it's especially good for servers - and completely "unsupported" btw :D

hmmz, might be an evil sugestion but,

i mean installing 2k from dos / win 9x (or even from win NTx), was never a good idea anyway as M$ often argued it crashes because of memory-isues, on most (old) computers,

any feedback????

Yes I've got a very old Toshiba Portege 320CT laptop which doesn't have a CD-ROM. I fitted its harddrive to my main PC using a 2.5inch to 3.5inch adapter. I then formated it using FORMAT C: /S and I copied the i386 folder into the D: drive along which SMARTDRV.EXE

I then put the harddrive back into my laptop and it booted into DOS. I loaded SMARTDRV and then installed Windows 2000.

:huh:

Would it be possible to use Hotstream to integrate IE 6.0 into Windows 2000 prior to installation?

Hotstream is a service pack. you cant use a service pack to intergrate something. you need a tool to intergate something.

If you want to intergate IE6 you can use HFSLIP. However, I dont think HFSLIP is compatible with hotstream

The latest hotstream or USP does contain IE6

I have used both usp 5.0 and 5.1 as the base for hfslip, esp since
I wanted IE 6, DX9c, and newer fixes slipped onto disk.
THEN I tweak the reg and add my own 'goodies'.
Works just fine ! Sorta of my own extreme version. :)

That was one of my projects a while ago. Making HFSLIP not complain took about 4 lines, and 15 minutes of my time. However, I never checked if everything was properly slipstreamed in, and it's possible HFSLIP didn't know USP5.1 has extra stuff. I verified an HFSLIP'd Win2k with USP5.1 had IE5 installed, but slipstreaming IE6 in is quite easy.

the latest release is 5.1 and does contain IE6 SPI, OE 6, DirectX 7 ....

im realy curious about any progress in this matter, and you totaly convinced me that im 'wrong' but in the mean time, id advice you to try a 'clean windows install (doesn't care if is sp 0 1 2 3 or 4, and in unattend.txt add a line with the guirunonce section to W2KSP5.exe /q:a ?? or what ever un-attended switch is posible ...
at least as long as no-one has found a fix...

about the HFSLIP thing, i can confirm what Electrician writes and state that we had compatability in mind with USP. i mean, there might be some mild competition at work between the two products, but ultimately we would rather it worked than have things break and have people blame one or both projects :D

besides lets face it, uSP may be a lot simple'er to slipstream for a regular user, and also supports updating an already installed system, it lacks international (non us/uk) support, i realy think there shouldn't even be competition, (but rather learn from eatch other),

for both the projects have there pro's and cons, (and i for one think that, they can perfectly co-exits, (each with its own targeted usergroups))....

The unofficial SP5 Needs to be updated again

You know patched up JScript, MDAC, WMP9 and others.

Also what about MS06-040. Since DHS is warning about vunerabilities shouldn't he patch up his SP5 till this date.

I also think that Directx 9.0c or just 9 to be in SP5 too because it's more up to date, it could be more secure, and better performance.

Well while i'm waiting I have tried to modify the SP5 myself (just for me not and for anybody else).

it also seems like a lot of updates you just copy and replace the file in SP5 so modification is very easy.

I think I had 8 updates left to integrate so after my little modification I only needed to install 4 hotfixes left. I actually did all 8 but I think 4 needed registry entrees which I didn't know what to do.

I am not trying to take anyones place i'm just tired of waiting so I puted the updates and added the Update references into the update.inf to install more hotfixes.

That way hotfixes don't get messy and I don't have all these errors.

Sorry I just couldn't wait anymore.

Do you think maybe someone could work on the unofficial service pack 5 while hes sick?

Maybe someone can make a unofficial service pack 6!

Also one more thing if I modify any SP5 files with upgrades how do I input it into a SP Installer, or even how do I make a service pack installer.

Hey guys,

i know these post is very very old, but maybe somone still read it.

I installed an Windows 2000 pro at the weekend, just for playing around. Now i found the unofficial Service Pack.
As my setup language is German, i can not install the Pack. Any ideas, any help?

Unpack the archive. Go to i386\update. Open update.inf and under [Version] set "LanguageType" to "0x00", and also remove all entries under all [ProductCatalogsToInstall*] sections. Save the changes and run update.exe. Most of your system will probably change into English after the installation.
