I am installing off of installation floppies I made off
this CD. When it gets done partitioning and formatting
the drive, this error always comes up:

"The following value in the .SIF file used by Setup is
corrupted or missing:

Value 0 on the line in section [SourceDisksFiles]
with key "sp4.cab"

Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3"

the CD has sp4.cab and the file seems to be fine.

This is a slightly dated dell laptop, but it meets all
the requirements for windows 2000 and was running this OS
before.

Thanks for any help!

Try creating a new set of floppies. The set of four install disks can be
created from your Windows 2000 CD-Rom; change to the \bootdisk directory on
the CD-Rom and execute makeboot.exe (from dos) or makebt32.exe (from 32 bit)
and follow the prompts.

I have already attempted this. I made the floppies off
of the CD a few times, and I also made the floppies off
of a website that I found the images on, just in case
something was wrong with the floppies off the CD.

I also tried 4 new disks with the same result.

How was the integrated install created?

Does it have the detailed hologram image on the disk? Are there any
instructions on it? You may need to boot the CD-Rom.

I recall that in winnt.sif, If you are running Unattended
Setup from the CD-ROM, you must set the Msdosinitiated key
to 0, but if you start Setup from 4 floppies, that key
should be set to 1.
At least that is the case in Windows NT4.0 (3 floppies
there), as detailed in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article -
123765
The WINNT.SIF File Created by WINNT and WINNT32
