I would really like some help with this annoying longlasting problem


So i have built my own computer, and i have another one (not built by me, it's built by Hewlett-Packard).
I use Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, and the problem is that SQL Server 2000 installs perfectly on this new made computer but not the service pack for it (sp4).
The installation keeps on going until it comes to this and stops, almost forever "Setup is initializing the server for the upgrade process".
When i wait long enough then a error pops up (didn't pay attention to it and clicked Ok, and then another one and i pressed ok. Then the setup just closes itself and doesn't allow me to retry the installation because this time it stops at validating password...
Please help me if you maybe know a solution for this. I'll give you my skype and please install TeamViewer so you can control my computer and change everything that must be changed in order for the installation to proceed.

SQL Server 2000 is no longer supported. Your best option is to upgrade to the latest version.

Note that to get there you will need to upgrade to 2008 first.

That sounds sad because i worked so hard with my Dekaron server on the other computer and now i get to this, isn't there a way for me to get some help anyways? I'm sure someone knows how to fix this problem.

#Edit: Dekaron is a game
and i get this error on log:
09:24:48 C:\Users\Hamed\AppData\Local\Temp\SqlSetup\Bin\scm.exe -Silent 1 -Action 1 -Service MSSQLSERVER -StartupOptions \-T4022

SQL 2000 isn't supported any longer, get SQL 2012 and use that.

Have you tried creating a virtual Server 2000/2003 environment on your Windows 7 box that you could install SQL 2000 SP4 on? Just a suggestion.
