    Anyone running Windows 2000 in Virtualbox with Service Pack 4?

    Hello, I'm currently running Windows 2000 in Virtualbox with Service Pack 3 and I'm crazy happy with the results. I'm posting this from W2K with Firefox. Super snappy, no errors, no crashes, I mean it's freaky how well this is running.

    Someone told me there is actually a Service Pack 4 for Windows 2000 and I have some real doubts about pushing my luck much further with this.

    Just curious if anyone is running Windows 2000 in Virtualbox with the Service Pack 4? Any problems? Thanks for the info.

    I run this to test some stuff in Vbox, or i did before KVM came along. It ran flawlessly with SP4 in my experience. I used www.nliteos.com to slipstream SP4 into the original ISO image.

    Thanks again for posting your response dude. Just finished downloading and installing W2K SP 4. Works great!

    Can't tell if there are any improvements from SP 3 but I'm just happy the thing booted up again! I'm posting in it right now.

    Well, better get back to work.
