There are several unknown difficulties.

I would: eliminate USB boot:
remove the hard disk, attach to another testing machine
run winnt32.exe from a stock Win2000 SP4 CD and apply files to partition 39,9 GB
set EnableBigLBA at setupreg.hiv
attach hard disk to netbook
configure BIOS to IDE emulation
boot from hard disk

What's "classic" Eurodance songs?


The "classic" Eurodance songs are, for example, "Dance if you cannot" of Daisy Dee, "What is love" of Haddaway and "Memories" of Netzwerk. The classic style remains about the same from 1992 to 1997 :)

@Agorima - you are doing this ALL WRONG!!!! You MUST get the OLD (from OLD computer) Win2000 C-Drive copied INTACT (and COMPLETE) from it TO the D-Drive of your "Test Computer", then use something like PTEDIT32 to SWITCH Boot Indicator of Partition-1 (C-Drive) from "x80" to "x00" and of Partition-2 (D-Drive) from "x00" to "x80" THEN change the Parition Type of Partition-1 (C-Drive) to the SAME TYPE except HIDDEN! This will allow the "Copied" to THINK it's the C-Drive (it won't "see" the REAL C-Drive). HAVE PTEDIT32 on BOTH HDD'S - OR get the DOS version (PTEDIT) and put it on a MINIMAL BOOTABLE DOS FLOPPY and flip-flop from DOS.

The PTEDIT programs are found here.

Good Glory, guys, I've been through this "moving an OS to a different HDD/Partition" many times. Win9x will ALWAYS believe (no matter WHAT Partition) it's on a C-Drive as long as that partition is the Active one ("x80"). NO NT-type OS can be "moved" to a DIFFERENT Partition and expect it to Boot like it used to. AND the x7B "bomb" is almost ALWAYS because of ChipSets and/or Drivers (maybe the HAL? Can't remember...). The ONLY way to "beat" it CLEANLY is to "Reinstall/Upgrade" over top of the old one (to retain other Software and Settings)!


I'm sorry. It was my fault. I hope that your suggestions are useful for me.

This afternoon I used an Acer Extensa 5230E which remained for 3 hour at my home because my cousin was repairing it.
After backing up my data I made the big step to install Windows 2000 to the first partition of my HDD.
When the HDD returned to the original place, in my netbook, I wanted to see if your suggestions was useful.
Shortly before the "Windows 2000 Professional" screen, the computer goes into a black screen with a cursor, and simply cannot continue.
After the repairing of the Extensa notebook, I viewed the properties. The type of the notebook is "ACPI Uniprocessor", and probably this cause the problem that I described.
Can I change the HAL wihout reinstalling Windows 2000 on another notebook?

The HAL shouldn't matter. You can change it manually in the Device Manager. Just remember not to switch between an ACPI and a non-ACPI one because this will break the system.

Black Screen with Cursor

BIOS->HDD
-- MBR Code - Look for Active Partition and Boot to it. If no code, no boot.
HDD MBR Code->Partition
-- BPB code - Look for NTLDR and execute it
NTLDR->BOOT,INI

Did you by chance "clone" (by copying) to a non-MBR'd HDD? Do you still have the USB HDD plugged in?

I'm responding to everybody's suggestions when I say "your suggestions". English is not my primary language.
Anyway, my cousin removed my HDD from inside the netbook, and putted it inside the Acer Extensa.
So, I have installed Windows 2000 on that notebook. After installation, I have turned off the notebook, without changing the type of the computer, which is "ACPI Uniprocessor". The HDD was putted again inside the Aspire One netbook.
When I booted the netbook, after the progress bar, it appeared the black screen with a blinking cursor.

How about enabling /bootlog and /sos switches in the boot.ini:

and later checking the log file (from another OS/PC) to see what was wrong.

Of sure I'll do everything to see the old OS working. I wonder if copying the *.inf files which are loaded into the setup of Windows XP Service Pack 3 to the I386 folder of the Windows 2000 CD (copied into the HDD) can avoid the 0x0000007B error. But I don't know which are the *.inf loaded.

Did you enable big LBA?


No, but I have installed Windows 2000 on C: without any problem.

Well, this can be the reason for black screen.

Question didn't relate to c: partition, question relate to d: partition.
Was full hard disk available at other machine?
Did you access data at second partition? Did you write data beyond 128 GB LBA?
You risk second partition data without EnableBigLBA.

What about suggest winnt32 approach?
Prepare hard disk for installation at other notebook, USB case. Swap hard disk and install at netbook.

Don't mix XP files to 2000.

I didn't see if the hard disk was fully available. I have just turned off after the desktop appeared.
I have returned to XP after I saw that WIndows 2000 didn't boot.

P.S. I know that's unrecommended, but inside the *.inf files of XP there is the support for the controller (in IDE mode), I think.

2000 mshdc.inf supports IDE mode too.

Which windows 2000 install media did you used?
Wich SP was integrated? Did you integrate Update Rollup?
Was EnableBigLBA integrated to CD?

For the installation on the Acer Extensa I used the Windows 2000 SP4 in Italian, without any update.

But on my hard disk, there is a Windows 2000 CD updated with the most recent unofficial Service Pack. EnableBigLBA was integrated there.
When I have used it, it was useless since I could not continue.

I think that there must be a way to install or use Windows 2000. I don't know where is the solution. Maybe from some trick to begin the installation from XP, maybe from some *.inf updated, maybe from creating a virtual floppy which contain the Sata drivers.

How about starting the installation using the netbook HDD in the other (desktop) computer and then after the first text part is finished you can try to move the HDD to the netbook again. I mean that you should choose a partition, let the installer copy all the files, etc. After that it will reboot and this is the moment you should move the HDD. Of course everything needs to be done using the IDE mode and the ACPI settings should be exactly the same (you can use F5 to specify the ACPI manually).

Try the version with EnableBigLBA.

But on my hard disk, there is a Windows 2000 CD updated with the most recent unofficial Service Pack. EnableBigLBA was integrated there.

Which files exist at hard disk? It's a ISO image?

When I have used it, it was useless since I could not continue.

Use the same files, but another approach.

A strange partition entry may result to black freeze too. Backup all data and MBR. Keep active partition entry, delete other entries.

And remember winnt32 to tranfer installaion files to hard disk.

Here I am again.

Yesterday I used an HP Compaq nx6310 to install Windows 2000.

1. I have extracted the netbook's HDD and I have putted it to that notebook;
2. I have installed Windows 2000 from there, on disk C:;

After installation, every change that I made was followed by a reboot.

3. I have enabled the BigLBA on regedit;
4. I have installed in this order these updates:

a. Update Rollup 1
b. UU Rollup 10b
c. Update Rollup 2

5. I have changed the ACPI from "ACPI Uniprocessor" to "Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC"
6. I have changed manually the IDE controller from "Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE controller" to "Intel ICH7R/DH SATA AHCI Controller" using the blackwingcat's drivers;

At the last reboot I got the 0x0000007B error, with this code (0xF242384C, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) but, as I'll say, this isn't really a problem.

After the Blue Screen of the Death I turned off the notebook and I have putted again the netbook's HDD on it's original place.

When I turned on the netbook Windows 2000 booted up successfully :)

This is the image of Windows 2000 Pro working on Intel Atom. I can use only one core and IDE mode (unless I use the appropriate SATA Drivers)
http://i45.tinypic.com/eiv5vq.jpg
The only thing that don't work properly, aside the Atheros drivers and the webcam, is the Realtek High Definition Audio. It says Error 10.
In Everest, I have seen this "Realtek ALC272 @ Intel NM10 ICH High Definition Audio Controller". I have installed the driver of the chipset.
There is a way to get it working?

I knew that it was possible to make Win2k run on that notebook :whistle:

1) Have you tried to boot with SATA mode enabled?

2) You should try changing the "Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC" to "ACPI Multiprocessor" in order to be able to use more than one core.

3) There are official Realtek HD Audio drivers available for Win2k. Have you tried them?

1) Not yet.

2) When I used for the first time Windows 2000 on my netbook, I have changed the ACPI to "ACPI Multiprocessor" but the system freezes while booting. I had to do that procedure again. I'm sure that I don't have any other choice.

Well, there had been several changes the last time. Kernel, hal and EnableBigLBA.

As for testing purposes: you may set kernel and hal at boot.ini
http://support.micro...kb/170756/en-us
You may prepare different boot options, similar to http://www.vernalex....sprep/hal.shtml

That way, you may boot current working configuration and test addional kernel and hal.

I have tried to boot with SATA mode enabled, and Windows 2000 worked fine with the Intel Chipset Drivers provided by Acer, which are almost identical to unofficial blackwingcat's drivers.

But after loading the system, it asked for the drivers of the controller, and I didn't have the Chipsets drivers handy, so I used the "Intel SATA AHCI Drivers" provided by Acer, which they are for XP.
The system failed to boot with the first error mentioned on my first post, so I have loaded it with the Last Known Good Configuration.

After another reboot, the system showed the "c:\winnt\system32\config\system is missing or corrupted" message.
Fortunately, I have Windows XP on D: so I could repair the system, although I must do again all the procedure. But for now I want only to rest my mind.

I spent so many time in this project and I am tired. The last day was very intensive for my mind.

Although the network adapters and the webcam aren't a big deal, the lack for the audio drivers and the hyper-threading is.
The official Realtek's drivers didn't work. Maybe the problem is inside the chipset's drivers.

P.S. The "ACPI Uniprocessor" of the original system works on the system repaired :)

Probably in this way I'll compromise again the system. The boot.ini is now this

[Boot Loader]
timeout=30
Default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
[Operating Systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect

Since the last entry must be untouched, I must use another entries like this, right?

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional (ACPI Multiprocessor)" /fastdetect /hal=halaacpi.dll /kernel=ntkrnlmp.exe

I cannot switch anymore from IDE to AHCI mode. Windows 2000 still says "inaccessible boot device", but I have installed all the updates previously mentioned (except UU Rollup, which have an error that prevents to complete the installation). It was my bad if I used previously the "Intel SATA AHCI drivers".

I can't go to the Internet in Windows 2000. Although every driver works correctly (no yellow symbol in the Device Manager), I can go only to 192.168.1.1
This problem occurs from every network card which I have, both internal and external.
The external USB Wireless Adapter is "TL-WN321G", which have it's utility.

The Internet works fine on the old system. Must I import the settings from the old system?
