  Subject: [windows2000] Win2k SP4 install error

  I tried to install Windows 2000 SP4 and got the following
  error message-

  Service Pack 4 Setup Error:
  The core system file (kernel) used to start this computer
  is not a Microsoft Windows file. The Service Pack will not
  be installed. For more information, see Knowledge Base
  article at http://support.microsoft.com.

  I searched the Knowledge Base and couldn't find anything
  relating to this error message.

  Does anyone have an idea what might be going on here?
  I am running an OEM version of W2000 Pro/SP1.
  I have previously installed SPs 2 and 3 with no problems.
