How can a make a W2K SP2 CD?

I don't want to order it and I need it on CD.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks!

huh? you just need service pack 2 burned to a cd? or the o/s with 2 installed already burned to cd?

if it's the latter, i suppose you could install it on your system, install sp 2 (or 4 for that matter), sysprep it and then ghost it into 650 meg files and burn it to cd.

i'm sure there are other ways folks will come up with....but that's how i do it.

Check out this guide on my webiste:

My version is "user friendly" but requires that you buy the WinISO program. You can also do it manually, but this requires that you extract the contents of the boot record and tweak a bunch of "boot CD" settings in your CD burning app. Thus, every burning app (Nero, EZCD, etc) needs different instructions. Read my site to see how to do the basics, then try it manually if you don't wnat to\can't use WinISO.
