Can not install windows 2000 sp4 without internet access
Posted on 2009-02-17
I have an old Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop running Windows Professional 2000 that still serves a good purpose. I wanted to load Office2003 onto it but the Office installer notified me that I needed to upgrade to W2K SP4. I downloaded the service pack from my production machine which is connected to the Internet onto a USB fob. The Inspiron has no way to connect to the Internet.
When I executed SP4 from the USB fob on the Inspiron, I go a message that the service pack could not access the Internet and that I should download a different version of W2k SP4 that allows the service pack to be loaded without Internet connectivity. But I cannot find that exe.
Can you please help?
