A disk died. By the time I was done trying to fix it, WHS v1 needed to be reinstalled. Of course it's not supported anymore so all the update files have disappeared from the microsoft site and windows update no longer works.

Was able to find PP1 but need PP2 & PP3 and any of the windows updates that anyone has buried deep in a directory tree somewhere. I know the chances are slim but if you don't ask...

If you can help, pls send me an email. whs@objectmail.com

Email address will be valid for 30 days from the date of this posting.

Thx.

Some of my angst may have been for naught. Overnight whs queued 157 updates and is busy installing them. PP2 was one of them. It would be nice to collect and burn a CD with the major whs v1 updates just in case I need to reinstall again before the hardware actually melts down for good.

If you remote desktop to the server you should find them in the temp folder.
At least that is where I recall I found them.

I posted a short thread about this last year:
http://www.mediasmartserver.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=14395

Hope this helps,
I grabbed all 3 of the HP updates to have (I assume I could apply them somehow).
The day will come when we will not be able to reload and run whs v1 anymore, a truly sad day :-(

If all else fails I have a Plain WHS V1 that I could load with the vga adapter (maybe) and might be able to find the drivers.

I have whs 2011 which I really didn't like but might be an option.

Lastly my home built win 2012E server might be an option.

Maybe why I keep two servers loaded and running (just in case) and I try not to mess around with them to much, but as you know all to well, the server will only last as long as the OS drive.
Their is a thread on how to clone a os drive, seems very difficult but may be worth trying, that would be cool to have a Base Plus load with all the updates and add-ins that one could fall back on.

Sad days indeed, Thank you microsoft NOT!

Goodluck
