HELP - SQL Server 2000 Install Files needed urgently

Hi!

I have a large project that is due to complete this week. In order to
complete it I need SQL Server 2000 installed on a remote server. My
disk is corrupt and to order another media disk would damage my
deadline. I have the licence and serial key, but now need good install
files. I am even ready to buy another retail box, if I can find a
supplier that would give me a download site for the media, while I wait
for the shipment!

Please PLEASE help!

Regards,

Barry

Hi,

Sorry if i'm stating the obvious - but it wasn't commented on in your
post.. If you have the licence and serial key shouldn't you be
contacting Microsoft?

Hi Greg. They will send me another media disk, but that doesnt help me
getting it installed for tomorrow.

Thanks for your reply.

Unfortuantely I doubt most anyone here would be comfortable putting binaries
out there to be copied. Even if you're totally legit, MS would have a field
day if they found out.

Sorry.


Thanks for your reply.

Oh, one other thought.. may be too late by an hour or two, but a couple of
places like PC Connection on the East coast used to have a "order by
midnight and get it the next day" policy. MIGHT have luck with them.

I agree with Greg, nobody's going to "lend" you the SQL Server binaries
based on the premise that you're entitled to them - too much personal
risk.

I see two options:

1. Delay the project and wait for the shipment
2. Incur the extra cost for the "retail box" and hopefully charge it
back to the business

Download the eval and then upgrade later.
