Hi ARKotwal,

Windows 2000 with (possibly) state of the heart 21th century hardware, can cause some issues. ;-)

This problem might be related to EHCI USB controllers not well supported by Windows 2000 out of the box.
Once you are on VMware, try to disable USB before booting that guest. After that, try once again installing SP4. If it is successful, you might want to read a this <a href=”http://support.microsoft.com/kb/319973/en-us”>Microsoft KB article</a>.

    If you boot into safe mode does the system come online? Can you install a newer OS to run your application (Windows 2000 is 11 years old at this point)?

    If necessary you could try a P2V migration from an existing Windows 2000 server. I've successfully migrated multiple physical servers to virtual machine sessions on VMWare and Hyper-V.
