Anyone tried installing sp4 in win 2000? I just tried and pc would not get past the screen that says windows is starting ! Was able to boot into safe mode and remove sp4.
Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem. :confused:


I have installed SP4 on 3 systems now, without a single problem. These all were systems with a fully updated W2K + SP3 installation.

Do you perhaps have any piece of exotic hardware installed, that could lead to incompatibility problems (driverproblems)?

I don’t know for sure when W2K starts logging, but you might want to take a look at the system’s logs (in the administrative tools).


haven’t had any problems installing SP4 on my friends computers.
both machines had new clean Win2000 installs and SP4 worked perfect.
