    Or, for a simpler answer...

    The SHA1 posted by Vanelle and other veteran members were collected over several years, extracted from untouched/unmodified files distributed by Microsoft on MSDN, official pages, etc that was once available on the web, OR dumped from original physical media (CD/DVD) to file with specific tools and verified by multiple sources and trusted members.

    The SHA1 you posted are not in his database, which means those files are incorrectly dumped and/or modified, and there is no way to know if they contain virus and/or damaged files inside.

    In my opinion, EVERY topic in this forum regarding "INFO FOR COLLECTORS" should have exactly that, a list or a link to a list of the known SHA1 and file sizes in the 1st topic, so anyone interested in that information is able to find it. Sharing said files is a completely different matter, each one is entitled to choose what they want to share or not share, and that's a discussion I don't want to get involved.

    actually I already knew all this :)
    my question is very simple and has not given an answer ...
    how do you prove the SHA-1 of "el_w2k_W2P_FPP_20000503.iso" is "5BF75DED80813565197B7E0F391A60F3A0D89DBA" if there is no documentation anywhere ?!
    I also like to collect all versions of the MSDN operating and office systems
    But they are not against things made in houses ... especially for old operating systems, first of CD or without boot ...
    that's why I have two types of collections, the MSDN and the homemade ones.
    On the difficulty in finding them it does not take much ... just having an MSDN subscription for over 5000 $ in the last 15-20 years and you have all without problems ...
    The problem is that not everyone can afford it ... :)
    I agree with you that it's not fair just to never give anything ...
    P.S. = never used UltraISO, Black ... always unified CDIMAGE

    if i answer your Question here, i make all my knowlege puplic
    -> in this case i can write a how to make better homebrew images

    this make our work to splitt valid images from homebrew nonsense much harder (you can certainly understand)

    we have member with Full MSDN and VLSC subscription since ~25 years wich have a lot of verry old stuff since the early days of win95 (yes in the early MSDN and VLSC have other names like DEV-Platform etc)
    lets talk privat of how to we prove the SHA-1 of "el_w2k_W2P_FPP_20000503.iso"

    If I'm not mistaken, SHA1 hashes for Windows 2000, along many other products, were removed from MSDN back in 2002 or 2003 due to a JAVA settlement, so if you don't trust the SHA1 hashes posted here, it will be very difficult to find them anywhere else. Nobody has to "prove" anything, you either accept our word or don't, it's totally up to you.

    yes, unfortunately all the material from 2000 back has been lost ... I had already talked to someone who works at Microsoft and I explain the problems that there were archiving.
    In fact, besides Windows 2000, Office 2000 has also disappeared and obviously all that behind ...
    I'm not saying I don't trust ... but a screenshot was enough where it shows the MSDN site of those years with SHA-1
    I have been using the PC for 30 years ... I started with MS-DOS 3.0 but surely there are people much older than me in here ...
    Unfortunately, the passion for all this I have only had for a few years ... but what I mean ... for someone who has a passion for 30 years it is not that difficult to have the complete collection ...
    I know someone who has had an MSDN subscription since the 90s and has practically everything ... but of course he keeps it for himself :)
    I am convinced that over time everything will be published ... if we think that 10 years ago there was almost nothing ... today from XP you can find practically everything even for free without a subscription ... the hard part remains the first ...

    I also want a proof of God, and yet no one can show me a single physical evidence, only words. Oh well, I guess I'll have to believe in a book written by men over 2000 years ago... or not. But I do believe in the gospel of Vanelle, because as the 11th Commandments says: "Thou shalt believe in MDL's verified SHA1 hashes".

    I found MSDN release of Nov 2004 Disc No 2429.2 had Windows 2000 ISO published. Next Release 2429.3 removed 2000 and replaced with XP and 2003
    If any one can get disc image anywhere it would be great.

    This is what is found in google search for this Disc info

    2429.2 Nov 2004 ISO CD images for: Windows® 2000 Advanced Server, Windows® 2000 Professional, Windows® 2000 Server, Windows Server ™ 2003 Enterprise Edition, Windows Server ™ 2003 Standard Edition, Windows Server ™ 2003 Web Edition, Windows® XP Home Edition , Windows® Media Center Edition 2005, Windows® XP Professional, Windows® XP Professional with Service Pack 1a, Windows® XP Tablet PC Edition (English)

    2429.4 is available on torrent which has 2003 and XP
    2429.5 is available on torrent which has xp and vista

    THX a lot for your info
    yes shure share Original Iso's are very welcome,
    all dump from Original CD/DVD can be posted / shared (only homebrew iso's are not allowed on MDL)
    It would be also great if you can create scans of the CD / DVD's (similar @pottzman does https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/microsoft-office-95-97-2000.29933/page-7#post-1598232)
    no need to post the artwork here, just put the Artwork together with your upload.

    ISO is NOT GENUINE, it was created with ImgBurn back in 2012, please check Vanelle's post for more info!
