after installing sp4 on w2k server, i get an error while
trying to install iis service post sp4 upgrade. it ask
for the windows 2000 sp4 cd, which i don't have, only
orginal cd "no sp's" like most folks. if i try using the
install cd some install files are missing from the cd. is
my only option to reinstall the os with iis???

Do you get a "browse" button when it asks for the CD? If so, extracting the
SP using the -x switch will give you the SP4 files.

Cheers

If the ServicePackSourcePath value in the following registry key is missing
or incorrect it can cause this problem:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

Also, if the service pack files are missing from the
%Systemroot%\ServicePackFiles folder it can cause this problem. Please
review the following article:

If your operating system was deployed by using sysprep, you could be running
into the following problem:

As Oli said, you may need to extract the SP4 files. If you do this, you
would need to click on "SP4 Network Installation" and save the W2ksp4.exe
file locally. You would then need to run the following command to extract
the SP4 files:

<path>\W2ksp4.exe -x

where <path> is the path to the file.

You would then need to specify a folder where the extracted files will be
located.
