How to find Windows install date

I had an argument with one of my colleagues about one of the servers.
The matter in question: When was server X installed?

To get a quick answer we used Systeminfo.exe, a forgotten command-line tool that is already installed on Win XP and 2003\2008 Servers. This is the command and output:

To get the same result on Windows 2000 server use the remote option from XP or 2003\2008 servers:

c:\systeminfo /S < ipaddress> /U domain\username /P password | find /i “install date”

the result on our only windows 2000 server was:

Original Install Date:     3/15/2004, 16:08:36
