For every service pack there is a README file supplied which explains the steps to ROLLBACK actions, in some cases of SQL 2000 it is not easy to do rollback which required a complete reinstallation. So for further information look at the each service pack release file for README.HTML file.

I don't think there's a short answer for that.

There's a Microsoft Support article about it:


Why do you want to rollback a service pack that was installed?

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
