    W2000 Domain Controller SP3 install problem

    Installing SP3 on W2000 machines, the workstations are fine.
    The domain controller spits it badly, and gives the terribly vague error:
    "Service Pack 3 Setup Error: An error in updating your system has occurred."
    Any ideas, suggestions...?

    Did you download the Service Pack from Microsoft.com, or did you install it from Windows Update?

    Does your server boot up at least? If so, I recommend trying Windows Update to install the latest updates. I say this because the method I use whenever I install an OS on a machine, I install everything from the CD, and then go to Windows Update and download all applicable updates. I have only had one issue with using Windows Update, and that was an oddball video driver problem, on a Multi-monitor system.

    We fixed it. Fdisk works wonders. It's a new machine to be delivered to the customer, and I don't subscribe to dodgy installations in these situations.
    Thanks for your suggestion though.
