Hi,

I have some problem when I tried to install Windows 2000 due to HDD type (Seagate 320 gb with sata2).

The source is fully up to date, but didn't work (tried in VMWare and real machine).

M$ said that the problem is solved since SP3. I also searched the forum, but didn't find a solution.

Strange, I don't get that, mind you I only tried in VMWare (320GB IDE), I don't have a real machine with a SATA2 HDD.

Your up-to-date method includes large disk support (>137GB) I presume? (USP 5.1 includes it)

I guess not. On real machine, I've got "damage partitions"  error, but recognize the size of partitions and after a very long format (35 min on 30gb) the message "setup can not continue...". Strange the entire size of hdd recognized by setup was 137gb.

Superb guide Kurt! Everything is spot on. I just created a fully updated Win2k SP5 install CD and it works perfectly, 1 touch install :)

I am very grateful for you keeping this guide up to date with the latest patches.

What am I doing wrong? I am a newbie when it comes to nlite so it was predictable that I'd manage to f**k up with creating a workable installation media even with your excellent guide. After several iterations I got a working base installation media without any bells and whistles, but Hotfixes still give me a headache. Only a handful will install (see attachment). I manually checked that they were in right order after adding them to Nlite, but no go. I only get those to install, with or without using the right order. I'm using Virtual Machine 2004. I'd be very grateful for any advice, I don't think I've had this much headache since trying to optimize dos 6.22 memory usage way back when.

Other than using May's update list rather than the current July one, nothing actually.

The reason that most of the hotfixes don't show up in [Add/Remove Programs] is that they are directly integrated into the install media (thereby saving space & time). Only those that aren't integrated will show, being those in the 2 batch files and those located at \I386\svcpack.

The hotfixes at \I386\svcpack are ones that nLite can't integrate, usually because they add new features to the OS, they are instead executed at T-13, the same time as most program AddOns.
