Hello,

I'm trying to run Windows 2000 SP2(non R2) and it seems to install fine on a Windows 2000 std server.   When the server reboots after installing I look at the properties of the server and it still shows SP1.   Any ideas on why this would not show as SP2 ?    I have not seen any errors on install or reboot.   I know this is an old OS version...long story but it's what our customer is running on and to long to explain on why I just don't upgrade to Win2k3 or Win2k8.

I'm not sure, but to clarify are you running Windows Server 2003 (non-R2) or Windows Server 2000?  I want to clarify because I don't believe there is an R2 for 2000, but there is for 2003.  If it's 2000, why not use Sp4 since it has all the latest security fixes?
