Were's the full Win2kSP4 download?

Specs: Windows 2k Professional
Hi guys,

I recently applied for Broadband, and have finally been sent my little box of goodies to set it all up!

However, when put in my ISP's disk to load all the drivers for the new modem/router etc., the install stopped early on, citing the need for Win2kSP4 to be installed on my system!

I've been looking on the net for over two hours, and still I can't find a legit place to download the full 130Mb file.

Microsoft are only allowing the download of an "Express" version, some 570kb, but as I don't have my computer (at home presently) connected to the net, I'm reluctant to download this file for fear that it's not what I need.

I repeat, I'm a first time broadband setter-upper and as yet am not on the internet at home.

Where can I get the full 130Mb file?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Here is the link to the full version.

I suggest you slipstream SP4 to your original CD prior to installing. May save you many headaches in the long run.

If you are simply trying to upgrade a running Win2000 computer then you can apply the service pack directly. Still would slipstream for future use. The same site I linked should also have the post SP4 updates available.

Slipstreaming is the process of merging the service pack into your existing files. nLite is an easy utility to perform the slipstreaming. You will, of course, need a CD burner and having Nero of Roxio burning programs will make it even easier.

Fantastic . . . . many thanks guys.
Just in the process of downloading now - the slipstream idea is new to me, often wondered how that was possible. Need to do a bit of reading up on that!

Have a great weekend!

Hi jam,

Thanks. The other links didn't work.

If at first you don't succeed, you're about average.

Check the nLite website for FAQ's & the "how to" guide:


I forgot that .NET Framework 2.0 is a requirement for nLite. You can get it here:
