Redirect Sfc In Windows 2000

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to redirect sfc in Windows 2000 sp4? Are the reg keys the same as in Windows XP?

1. After creating X:\i386 (X represents the drive letter of your choice; substitute the appropriate drive letter for X)

2. HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

- SourcePath = X:\

- Installation Source = X:\i386

- ServicePackSourcePath = X:\

3. HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion

- SourcePath = X:\i386

4. Reboot - Then sfc /scannow

* These changes work for XP, but are there different/additional keys that need adjusting in 2000?

Thanks.

So I'm assuming that no one knows what I'm referring to. The above instructions are HUGELY oversimplified, so don't anyone try to follow them as is.

Thanks anyway. (I'll eventually figure it out.)

You seem to have your info correct.

Change SourcePath to C:\ (note the backslash... and as you probably know, it appends i386 automatically)

You should also edit the "Installation Sources" value and append C:\ if it not already present.

It's supposed to work. :|

Hi DjLizard,

I can confirm that it works for XP, but not sure yet on 2000. XP keeps a cache of i386, but 2000 doesn't. It has a driver i386 folder, and a service pack i386 folder.

Logical guess was to create an i386 folder in C, and copy both of those folders into the C:\i386 folder, and then continue the steps. (Do those 2 i386 folders need to be expanded?)

I haven't gotten a response yet, as to if that worked or not. Thanks for the feedback!
