Is there a way to integrate/install sp4 on Neptune to make it more stable and safer?
When i start the setup on Neptune theres' a message that sp4 could only work with build 2195

I really don't know why you want to bother "fixing" neptune?

It's a technical preview, very fun to play with and it provides a big part is peicing together MS history, and more importantly the history of NT based operating systems. As does Longhorn.

People just have to accept that it wasn't finished, it is riddled with bugs and should NOT be used as a serious OS.

I honestly don't know what integrating SP4 into it would acheive, apart from making it more Windows 2000, than Neptune.

I find it very stable for an Alpha and did not find any bug.

And I like Neptune. You are right its a part of the NT history and the idead MS had in the year 2000, like the activity center etc.

But becouse Neptune is a mix between 2k and xp i like working with it ;)

Neptune is a good OS. You don`t need SP4.

Then you didn't look very hard.

Using Neptune as a full time os just isn't viable.

EDIT :: and it isn't an alpha. It never was. It's a technology preview

Try replacing all instances of 5111 in the registry with 2195?
