There seems to be a problem with the USP5.1 integration.

Could you:

  • Download and unpack "HFSLIP_ia.7z" once again (I've updated some files).
  • Copy your source files to "SOURCE". Remember that the source must be clean, without any modifications.
  • Before running the script open a command line window and type:

    HF\w2ksp51 /integrate:C:\HFSLIP_ia\SOURCE
    What happens? Does the integration of USP5.1 work?

Ill go ahead and redownload it. (My internet runs about 60Kb/s so it will take a few hours) Ill report back to you what happens. Thanks!

What would cause a source not to be clean? A previously modified ISO?

Yes :yes: It should be unmodified (the exception is SP integration).

Alright.. I redownloaded HFSLIP, and got 2000 successfully installed (Shows the "Powered by extended kernel at bootup screen, and it says 5.1 in the properties) but i'm still having issues with the graphics card. I have extracted and tried manual install on a few versions of the software, and im about to download more from the AMD site. I cant use the catalyst on the later drivers, because AMD made the install screen too big, and with the set resolution, you cant select anything to make it install. Thanks!

I think that you should try to install the drivers manually through Device Manager.

Could you download my own experimental version of the AMD 12.8 Display drivers from here? I've removed the bloatware and also modified the INF file so that it will be accepted by Windows 2000.

I have tried to do it manually. I'll try your driver. Thanks!

I wish there was KernelEx for 2k (Like there is for 98),Or is there already one? I haven't had any luck finding a download.

Edit: I tried your driver, and still get..

The unofficial kernels play this role. You've installed the daily version of UURollup-v11 in which the BlackWingCat's kernel its included. There's also KDW where you can manually change dependencies, change the User Agent, etc.

Spoiler

The driver itself has been modified in order to work in Win2k. The problem here seems to be different. It seems that your graphic card's hardware ID is not supported by them.

First of all, please try to download and install the other versions which I've just uploaded (12-6 and 11-12). This time I didn't remove any files, just changed the INF file in order to make it work in Win2k. Actually I believe that the newest driver may not be compatible with your graphic card... but 12-6 should work!

The 12-6 driver installed successfully through device manager, but I still cant change the resolution or the colors. When I tried to run the installer in the 12-6, it says it isn't compatible with the OS i'm running.

Is there an exclamation mark next to the graphic card in the Device Manager? You may want to try installing one of the older drivers (11.x or 10.x). You'll also have to do it manually.

No there isn't. It displays under "Display Adapters", as it should. I don't think that its the driver at this point, I think its that the catalyst isn't installed. How exactly do you go in and make it where it will work on 2k? If i could do that to one of the older drivers, such as 8-10, I could install the catalyst because the installer is in a different layout, and i can get to all of the buttons on the installer.

Also, the 11.12 that you uploaded is for vista, if that matters.

It was a mistake :blushing: You can find older versions of Catalyst drivers here.

I wish I could help you more but I've got no hardware to test the drivers myself. I use a nVIDIA graphic card and even if I install just the driver (without all the additional panels, etc.) I can still adjust the resolution without any problems.

How would i go into one of the older drivers and make it work with 2000? The catalyst runs fine for the older ones. I just don't have a driver that will install, because it thinks it only works on XP.

In order to make the drivers' INF file work you need to change these lines:

[Manufacturer]
%ATI% = ATI.Mfg, NTx86

[ATI.Mfg.NTx86]
to

[Manufacturer]
%ATI% = ATI.Mfg

[ATI.Mfg]

I guess the best thing for me to do is find an older (But still decent) PC that has drivers that will work with 2k. What is your current setup, Tomasz?

My hardware is actually pretty new (not the most recent one but still):

AMD Athlon II X4 631 (FM1)
ASRock A55 Pro3
Samsung DDR3 1333MHz 8 GB
nVIDIA GeForce 6600 (I don't play any games or use any graphic intensive applications so no need for a newer one).
1xSSD / 4x HDD (some connected to the built-in controller and the rest to a PCI-E SAS controller)
SoundBlaster Live! 24-bit

I must say that not all of the drivers work in Win2k, ex. the ASMedia SATA3 drivers don't (but AMD SATA2 do) and USB3.0 drivers don't work too. Personally I've always liked nVIDIA because they provide far better drivers support than ATI/AMD. My GF6600 card was manufactured in 2004 and the latest drivers still support it despite the fact that the card is 8 years old.

Thats a good setup for 2k. I'll have to look into finding something of similar nature. Thanks!

If you've got any external PCI-E nVIDIA graphic card you could try to plug it in and check how it works on the current configuration.

I dont have any external graphics cards. I'll look around and see if i can find one on ebay.

Would the GeForce 6600 handle basic games?

Alright. My computer has these:Posted Image

Which of the PCI-E slots are you using? I would assume the PCI-E 16x.

Would this be a good card to use? From what I have read so far, it is supported by 2k. http://cgi.ebay.com/...atchlink:top:en

The official drivers will work in Win2k... but you do know that the Quadro series is targeted at professional 3D applications, right? The drivers for them are different from the "normal" ones, and I've got no idea how games would perform on this card.

Well, there exist PCI-E 1x cards too :lol: but they're pretty expensive so if you don't need the PCI-E 16x slot for anything else then it is the right one. And remember that PCI-E slots are inter-compatible so you can use a PCI-E x1/x4/x8 card in a x16 slot too and vice versa as long as it fits (some motherboards have the backside of the shorter slots open so you can plug a longer card in too).

Well i assumed to perform well doing 3D stuff, it would have to do graphics just as well. But hey, if it stays cheap enough, It's better than nothing.

I know PCI-E 1x exist, and i found out they price was pretty far up there as well, so I think i'll stay away from them. Haha. My PCI 16x has never been used, so i would assume i dont need it for anything other than a graphics card. I didn't know that all three were inter compatible. Thats cool. Is your card a PCI-E 16x?

Mine is a standard x16 version. It's this card, to be more specific. I bought it as used on an auction website and haven't had any problems with it. What's good is that it's passively cooled so it's completely silent. I hate those small GPU fans which usually get louder and louder with time.

Yes :yes:

Although I myself would go for this one simply because it's passively cooled.
