I have lot of problems on our Windows 2003 server SP2 and it is recommanded to execute the SFC / SCANNOW command in order to check the files.

My problem is when I try to execute that command it asks for the CD and when I insert anyof them (I have 3 CDroms Disk 1 , disk2 and OEM one),

it says that the CD is not correct and insert the right one.

I am getting crazy because I cannot understand wich files or which Cd it needs.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Ding ding ding .. Server 2003 used to come with tons of CDs and, if you kept all of them, you could be getting confused at which CD you inserted.

Thanks for answering to my problem.

I have indeed several CDs but none is taken into account, means each time I insert one I get the same answers, please insert the CD...

In the cover of Cds it is written including SP2, but I thing it does not mean that it is SP2.

So, question how is it possible to "build" or to have a SP2 CD from those I have?


Thanks for your help
