This topic is partially covered, some places were vague. However, Win2K
is a great system and lack of information needs to be filled, isn't it?
I will try to complement the missing and offer a complete solution.
Probably, many have heard, and some even installed KernelEx for Windows 2000. Those who have studied the subject know: that most of necessary updates and patches for this project in Chinese or on Japanese languages. This is partly a problem, because Windows then must also be the corresponding localization.
Was a good article: http://toastytech.com/files/95browsing.html
, this article in combination with experiments roytam1
on his virtual machine (while debugging no SSE solutions), motivated me to start my own experiments in this area.
First of all, it turned out that it is very, very difficult to find these required updates for the installer, especially (at least) just on English. After all, to use the English system (in general case) most simpler than localized in a foreign language. Lot of time has passed and a lot has been unavailable. Part has been removed by self efforts of Microsoft. But this is understandable, marketing and etc.
Partially digging in archives, partly digging half of all Internet, but as result: successfully collected this kit (with current 2000 kernel ex from summer of this year, i.e. from past summer 2017th : ).
And since to search, on all network, entertainment below average, has decided to lay out here.
I'm sure there are people who can use it. Because the netbook with 2K works very smartly!
And for virtual machines is useful. In General, a must-have!
For tests I created a virtual machine with 64 MB of RAM. And since "just" 2K PRO is bored already, was chosen Dataсenter 2K Server SP4. For extended kernel needs SP4, there already is no options. The system needs to be English (in case of Dataсenter is already by default).
The process I recorded on video for those interested (very compact, ~990 KB):

Video 640x480, duration ~10 minutes. Here is sequence of actions to run current KM on Win2K.
In addition, here shows a little trick to support of cyrillic characters, but if you knowing your code page, you can use any language (as all languages contain support for English).
Link to full set, for all 2K family (how to use it see in video, all shown in detail): (~103 MB).

You can also use the MUI, for your language, he is able to change workstation (as 2K PRO), but not server edition. For Russian forum, I have prepared a compact version of MUI (around 30 MB). But I have files for all released languages (CHS, CHT, ES, FR, GER, IT, JPN, KOR, NL, SV, ARA, BR, CS, DA, EL, FI, HEB, HU, NO, PL, PT, RU, TR).
If you need, you can ask, I can prepare a compact language sets.
