I am a new member, but just wanted to post links to the links and locations to the NT operating systems service packs, since they can be hard to find if you don't know where to look, especially as time goes on, less site will host "mirror" links to these packs. I found them as I was creating backups for my own systems.

Hopefully the moderators will mark this "sticky", although since these go back to 09/1995 (NT 3.5 SP3), it's unlikely Microsoft is going to delete these anytime soon. But I do burn everything to CD-R. You may want to bookmark these:

These are all self-extracting files; I personally create a folder called [i]SP"x" (where "x" is the service pack number), then I double-click the SP file to extract all the files, and then I click the extracted file called "update.exe" to install the SP).

For the main directory to all NT versions, click here:

ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/winnt/winnt-public/fixes/usa/

For NT 3.1 Service Pack 3, click here: http://files.oldos.org/files/updates/winnt31sp3.rar (11/10/94) (Service Pack 1 & 2 are missing in action) (needs to be extracted using WinRAR and then you can install)

For NT 3.5 Service Pack 3, click here (Service Packs 1 & 2 are missing in action):

ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/winnt/winnt-public/fixes/usa/nt35/ussp3/i386/SP3_35I.EXE (09/13/95)

For NT 4.0 Post-Service Pack 6a hotfixes, click here: ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/winnt/winnt-public/fixes/usa/nt40/Hotfixes-PostSP6a/

I wouldn't worry about not having NT 3.1 SP1 or SP2 because SP3 contains all the previous patches and SP1 and SP2 are not required to install SP3.

And, I wouldn't worry too much about not having NT 3.5 SP1 or SP2 because SP3 contains all the previous patches and SP1 and SP2 are not required to install SP3.

And, I also wouldn't worry about not having NT 3.51 SP1, because all subsequent service packs have the previous patches.

And, again, I wouldn't worry about not having NT 4.0 SP4, because SP5 contains all previous patches from the previous service packs and they are not required to install SP5, and most programs out there today only require a minimum of Service Pack 5.

Hope this helps all the legacy lovers out there, because trying to search Microsoft's FTP can be a maze at times.
