No.
There is no other way.
Or u could have a friend download all the files and paste it here with the entire steam folder of his... all u have to do then is log in with ur id again. ur registry is fixed too... ^^

You can try downloading the Half-Life cache version of Steam.

Here's a link to the Half-Life cache version of Steam: http://www.fileplanet.com/130418/130000/fileinfo/Steam-Installer---Half-Life-[Win32]

This version of Steam is outdated, so you'll have to let it update. The difference between this version and the regular Steam version is this already has the cache files for Half-Life, so you'll only need a valid CD-key and all you need to do is wait for Steam to update Half-Life.

But he has a traffic limit, so he can't download the game of the internet. So basicly, if you don't want to download, you will either need to find a friend with Half Life and just copy and paste his game, or buy the Half Life 1 CD and install the game so you don't have to download it.

If your friend already registered Half-Life through Steam then you won't be able to do the same. If you have Steam, all you need to do is input the CD-key and Steam will automatically download Half-Life from the server. If you use the Half-Life cache version of Steam, then after you input the CD-key, Steam will just verify the cache files and unpack then. Once that's done Steam will then update Half-Life to the latest version.

You don't need to install Half-Life, just open up Steam and register the CD-Key.

Did you install ESF to it's own folder?

What happens if you double click on Half-Life? (Not the third party one). The Half-Life file you downloaded should be in steam/steamapps/ folder.
