How to download and install the SR-1/SR-1a Update

Note The following steps require Internet connectivity. Additionally, you will likely be prompted to insert the original install media.

1.To download and install the SR-1/SR-1a Update, use your Web browser to visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=af6c8d03-7633-45b4-ab96-795ee656f2a2&displaylang=en (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=af6c8d03-7633-45b4-ab96-795ee656f2a2&displaylang=en)
2.On the right side of the Web page, click Download. If you are prompted with the choice to Open or to Save O2ksr1a.exe, click Open. The SR-1a update starts downloading now. Because of the relatively large size of the download, this process can take up to several hours, depending on your Internet connection speed.
3.After the update package is finished downloading, the interface appears. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to complete the installation. If you are prompted to install the original install media during the process, do so when you are prompted.

Important notes

Any user, even one without administrative permissions, can install the SR-1/SR-1a Update on a computer that is running Microsoft Windows NT 4.0. However, administrative permissions are required to update to Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01 on a Windows NT 4.0 computer.
If your computer is running Microsoft Windows 95 or Microsoft Windows 98 with user profiles enabled, each user of the computer must install the SR-1/SR-1a Update when they are logged on, using their profile.
The rollback feature of the SR-1/SR-1a Update is designed to restore your system to its pre-SR-1/SR-1a Update state, in case you cancel the update process or the Windows Installer reports a non-fatal error. Rollback will not function if your computer loses power, or if there is a fatal error in the installation process. If your hard disk does not have enough free disk space to support rollback, you will be prompted to continue installation of the SR-1/SR-1a Update without rollback.
