Usbvideo.sys from XP will not work in 2K. There are unfixed dependencies related to ntoskrnl.exe (use Dependency Walker to check it yourself).

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 :)


The N450 is a Single core with HT, not a dual core. So it's not a real problem.

I've done some research. It has to do with your InsydeH20 BIOS.
This BIOS expects Intel SpeedStep driver loaded with the CPU driver for dual core or HT support. Win2K doesn't have Speedstep built in. Try and install a speedstep driver and then see if you can enable both cores.

I'm still using this netbook.
Is it possible to integrate the Speedstep drivers with nLite?

You could try, but the biggest problem is that it never loads the drivers in kernel mode. Meaning that getting the HT to work is pointless.

After ages of time (better late than never, though), I have installed a modded BIOS in my netbook, with the same id, "NAV50" and the same version (v. 1.26), and seems that with this modded bios I can turn off Speedstep to overcome the lack of this technology inside Windows 2000 to install it.

Am I right?

 

Edit: Still hangs when disabling Geyserville.

 

I will stay in XP.
