Unofficial SP 5.2 for Microsoft Windows 2000 (WIP)

Recommended Posts


It seems that M$ have closed their hotfix service all together: https://www.ghacks.net/2018/11/05/microsofts-hotfix-service-is-no-longer-available/.

This means that all the links to hotfixes on my site no longer work. What is more, those links have also not been archived by the Wayback Machine (perhaps due to robots.txt restrictions?). You can, of course, download the files themselves from my Archive, and I will likely replace all the non-functional official URLs with links to the Archive as well. This is sad to see as my Archive is probably the only publicly available site where the files are being stored right now. I believe that we should have them backed up in more places.

Not yet! As I posted, but was mostly ignored: :no:

Well, sort of... :unsure:
I've just now tried to download one hotfix, just to check it: WindowsServer2003-KB957910-x86-ENU.exe
I've used the link below:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hotfix/kbhotfix?kbnum=957910&kbln=en-us&forceorigin=esmc
It was redirected to the page with the message @tain quoted above.
Then I closed the tab it was in, opened another one and gave it a "paste and go" command with the same url above...
This time I got the old good MS agreement form and clicked "yes" on it...
I got once more redirected to the page with the message @tain quoted above.
Then I closed the tab it was in, opened another one and gave it a "paste and go" command with the same url above...
This time I got the old good MS hotfix by e-mail order page, opened the language selection menu and ticked the PTB version (because I already had the ENU one), and gave the e-mail it was to be sent to.
The link to the hotfix inside a zip was sent as usual, and I was able to download the file all right.
So: go figure! :wacko:

I just tried again right now:

I used the url:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hotfix/kbhotfix?kbnum=916157&kbln=en-us&forceorigin=esmc

and I went stright to the old good MS agreement form and clicked "yes" on it..
and was redirected to the page that says "This hotfix is not available anymore, blah, blah...
so I ignored that and pasted the above url again with "paste and go"...
This time I got the old good MS hotfix by e-mail order page, opened the language selection menu and ticked the PTB version (because I already had the ENU one), and gave the e-mail it was to be sent to.

Try yourself, if you don't believe me! No telling how long this will remain happening, so better save all that's relevant right away! :yes:

Thanks for the tip!

It seems that they have just changed the domain where the hotfixes are hosted.

Old: http://hotfixv4.microsoft.com/Windows XP/sp4/Fix499402/2600/free/473489_ENU_i386_zip.exe
New: https://hotfixv4.trafficmanager.net/Windows XP/sp4/Fix499402/2600/free/473489_ENU_i386_zip.exe

This means that I will just have to fix the URLs :).

I come to ask, how to slipstream unofficial updates, in my case I want to slipstream the WinUSB that is in Blackwingcat's WLU. With HFSLIP or maybe with nLite.

Since in my Intel 6 Series C200 Chispet, USB does not work and I have to use CD and a PS/2 keyboard to install this system, but my computer does not have PS/2 ports, I can not go that way, due to this problem I can not install Windows 2000 and since 6 months ago I am looking for a solution to this damn problem.

Please post a link to the specific USB driver. I will try to have to a look at it in my free time. HFSLIP can indeed slipstream drivers, but the documentation is lacking. You will also have to make sure that the driver works in vanilla Windows 2000. If it requires the Extended Kernel, then the whole task will be much more problematic.

It does not exist, hence the "WIP" or "work in progress" tag in the title. Please use my website http://windowsarchives.com/ for the latest list of official updates and hotfixes and use them with HFSLIP2000 to create a fully updated Windows 2000 installation ISO. If this is your first time, make sure to prepare yourself mentally and have a cup of strong coffee as right now there are almost 400 different files to download and categorise into different HFSLIP folders ;).

Or just save yourself all that trouble, and take advantage of the good work already done by tomasz86, and download the HFSLIP2000_FullPack_09092017.

That is an option, but, judging by the country flag, I suspected that @Radovan might perhaps be using a Czech version of Windows 2000, and the FullPack is available only in English.

@dencorso

I was eventually going to update the broken URLs, but the https://hotfixv4.trafficmanager.net seems dead as for today. I am also unable to receive emails for any of the requested hotfixes. Is the MS hotfix hosting infrastructure finally gone?
