Exchange 2010 readiness check KB downloads

Hi all;

Encountered an issue installing Exc2010 Std for a client who is experiencing stability issues.  Been a while since I last completed a 2010 install.  

During the readiness checks there are a couple failures with links to KB articles and code downloads that just page not found or say the site has been retired.

Working with MS on this has been, thus far, a pain.  Does anyone have links for these downloads?  

The KBs I am after hotfixes for are KB982867, KB979744, KB983440 and KB977020.

Thanks in advance....

As long as the server is fully patched, with Microsoft Update run after installing the prerequisites and before the installation of Exchange you should be fine.
Most stability issues come from hardware, so ensure that you have latest drivers and firmware. Go straight to Exchange 2010 SP3 (get the latest rollup and put it in the Updates directory to be installed at the same time). The only KB I manually install is one for the clustering, which is recommended by the Exchange product team - nothing else.
