hardware or harddisk? if your issue is related to the size of the disk, sorry to say that, but it is related to 48bit LBA. so, if size is your issue, probably it is related to lack of service pack
> can i download the latest w2k all hotfixes integrated cd image somewhere?
i really doubt. 2k has been abandoned long ago. but it's possible to you integrate the service packs and updates in your own media. nlite may help you

I don't think anyone at AutoPatcher wants to assume a user is up to no good ( ) but it's statements like this that have to be dealt with immediately...
Soli, what you need to do is gather the needed updates (hotfixes), and the service pack if you don't have it, and slipstream your own Win2K disk. This is a task either you or someone you know will have to do, a 3rd party online doing this for you and offering a disk for download (even if you have a key) is still piracy.
I would recommend a forum like MSFN and one of the many hotfix lists, here's a 2k list - Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 Updates For HFSLIP.
What you do is, gather the updates, use a tool like HFSLIP to integrate the updates into a new install disk, and use a VM (Virtual PC, VirtualBox, etc) to test the disk. I will admit these forums are very busy, many pages to read thru, it's confusing but ask questions, I'm sure they will help you get your 2K disk up to speed, fully updated.
Also, be careful when you download and run a .bat file, especially if you don't really know the person who programmed the code - it's as bad as double clicking a .exe file if the program is malicious. I'm removing the demonoid link just to be safe since you don't really explain the actions of the bat file.
Btw, if I'm not mistaken HFSLIP makes use of a .bat file I believe but it is a known good tool as long as you download it from a known safe source.

I have converted the Italian version of the Win 2k SP4 AutoPatcher scripts (as at circa May 2010)to English and successfully installed all the relevant SP4 patches on my Win 2k machine using AutoPatcher without any problems. I've also done a fair amount of work on updating the English version of the file download script for Win 2k SP4.
One issue I'd like some help with is understanding how to create the various .rti files.

The tool that signs the release is only given out to release managers otherwise any kind of malicious release could be signed and distributed and you know who would get hell for it. The release manager position implies at least a certain commitment to handling issues when users have troubles and a reasonable commitment to update the script as future patches are needed.
If this is a one time thing and you have all the apm files in order and the script is ready for at least a beta label it may be worth listing it as 2k_sp4_20110603_beta.script and I would sign your name to it = Author Mazabuka. We normally don't do beta without some testing but there isn't a team to test at this point so maybe adding beta to the script and title will give a heads up to the users...?
Btw, have you looked at the docs we have, not much but it helps - See this post, download nova.zip.

The list of w2k updates provided by Jan Erik was also very helpful and saved a lot of time - note that I did not script the w2k server updates included on Jan's list because I could not install nor test them on my w2k pro machine. BTW the w2k server updates were not scripted by the author of the Italian w2k scripts either.
The most challenging part of the whole process was trying to verify which updates were still current and which were obsolete / superseded - at this stage I'm still not certain in my own mind that my "final" list of current updates is correct! Belarc's Advisor tool, for example, indicated that I did NOT need to install many of the updates that AutoPatcher selects for installation on my w2k machine. On the other hand, Belarc Advisor also indicated that I needed to install a number of updates that were not referenced by either the Italian or English versions of the AutoPatcher download scripts. For the moment I'm putting my trust in Belarc Advisor until such time as I get more time to research MS' Security Bulletins in more detail.
I have not completed the updates to the AutoPatcher download script yet - the link you provided to the documentation will be helpful in this regard. For my first cut I plan to comment out the download directives that I consider to be obsolete (or which I've corrected or moved to a different module section). This will allow me to update the download script quite quickly for the first beta which can then be made available for testing, user feedback and remedial action as appropriate. At a later date, once the betas have settled down, I will then add the directives to delete obsolete patches etc. that have been downloaded to user's hard drives using earlier versions of the English AutoPatcher download script.
I'm not sure when I will have the first beta of the download script ready - I would expect it to be sometime this month. I'm also happy to proceed with the beta roll out along the lines you suggest when the download script is ready.

The update of the download script is basically complete - the only outstanding work comprises the "Pre-actions" which wont take me very long to do.
I've restructured the script significantly and aligned it fairly closely with the XP SP3 download script. I'm also using some of the APMs from XP SP3 and have found that the XP SP3 "EUFontUpdate.apm" contains a bug that needs to be corrected - the "SystemLanguage" variable is specified as "ALL" instead of "ANY" which results in AP being unable to load/process this APM. Would it be possible for somebody to fix this APM in the next day or two, so that I can incorporate it my download script for w2k?
BTW, there is also a bug in "KB952069_xp_sp3_x86_enu.apm" which results in version 2 of the patch not being installed on XP if you already have version 1 of the patch installed. This bug can be fixed by deleting the following code from the APM:
RegistryPath=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Windows Media Player\KB952069_WM9
Please would you explain how I go about uploading the AP updates for w2k - the "Help with attaching files" is not very helpful!

- click on the button that says "Use Full Editor" and wait for the screen to load new page.
- click on "Browse..." button and look for the file to upload.
- click "Attach This File" Button.
