Setup of W2K Advance without the S P

By stngfan1 ·
I need to install advance server without the included service pack.

I just ordered a copy of advance server it comes with service pack 3.

We are testing new software and it has not been tested with service pack 3. So I need to install advance server without the service pack or an earlier service pack.

How can I do this with the only CD I have?

I don't see an unistall option in Add/Remove Programs for service pack 3.

Thanks.
TM

If you have advance server with sp3, that means that the i386 folder has been updated with the sp3 files. By installing advanced server as usual, it installs sp3 automatically. You can verify this by right-clicking on my computer, properties, and it will tell you what sp you're using.

You must have an earlier service pack loaded before you can roll back a later one.

You might try loading an earlier service pack if it will let you. If the earlier srervice pack will not let you replace a later one, your best bet would be to talk to a Microsoft rep about your dilemma. Don't expect any magic bullet from MS.

Your best bet would be to locate an original copy of Win2K Server (w/o any SPs) and load that for testing purposes. The license you have will cover that installation.

Or you might just want to go ahead and test the software on SP3. Chances are it will work OK.

Hope this helps.
