Windows 2000 Powered was for network attached storage devices and things like that if I remember correctly...

EDIT: Yeah, what Ken said :P

I think this is it: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/deta ... layLang=en - you don't even need to validate if that's a problem for you.

Well, I tried it and I didn't succeed. I installed the Server Appliance Kit 2.0.1 on a Windows 2000 Server SP4 machine and it didn't convert the OS to Windows Powered. There's also no tool (as it's in the SAK 3.0 for Windows Server 2003) to do this.

Does anybody know how Win2k Server can be "converted" to Windows Powered using the SAK?

If all you want to do is change the screenies to say window powered all that needs to be done is change the name of 2 files in the root. The bitmaps are on the cd. If you want to know the name of those 2 files and the name they must be changed to PM KenOath. It was his hack.

I don't know why you posted above that it was my hack, it wasn't a
hack at all. it's a legit installation of it...

I'm sure if you were to look in places like the
ntoskrnl.exe , ntkrnlmp.exe, you'll find the boot screens, explorer for
the start menu, & perhaps the other usuals like shell32.dll & whatnot...
There's a ton of files all up with bitmaps but they'll get you started...
What you have to remember though, is that the files will also be in the
service pack cabs, so if you change them in the i386 folder, they'll be
changed back during the installation if you don't also change the one's
in the service pack cabs..

Its reviving old threads without good reason and pushes the newer threads to the bottom of the list.

Taking a copy of advanced server, changing the root ID tags from
IA to IW, then slipstreaming service pack 2 through to 4 will result
in the service pack thinking its Windows powered, & slipstreaming the

Wont be a genuine iso, but never the less a working copy...
Which no doubt is what you have.
I have a service pack 1 build of it though, which I imagine was the initial
release of this OS, & most likely why the service packs only had the
updated files from service pack 2 & on...
