Windows 2000 install issues. Help?
Posted 26 September 2012 - 05:16 PM
Toshiba satellite, Athlon x2 2.0ghz (32bit) 3gb ram.
Laptop2: Lenovo z565, Phenom x2 3.0ghz 6gb ram (Ill reduce it since 2k cant handle that)
HP Pavillion 2.8ghz athlon x2, 8gb ram (Ill do the same with this)

Also, are there any OSs installed on the laptops? Did you set the laptops to IDE (if possible). I've found a rare case where you needed to load the SATA drivers during the installation. I worked on a laptop that required the drivers slipstreamed into the installation media. Hope this new information helps!

With the new versions of BWC kernel / UURollup & PAE enabled you can use up to 8 GB of RAM under Win2k Pro.
Lastly, instead of switching to IDE mode in BIOS I would just recommend integrating proper SATA drivers.

I dont know where to get the sata drivers, or where to put them on the disc. ( Could I make a separate disc, and do the F6 thing at the start of the setup, or does it only support floppy discs?)
Tomasz,, What sources or update do you mean, and how would i slipstream them to the disc? For the 8gb ram thing, do you have a link to download the program to enable that? I will try to find the SATA drivers, and attempt to learn how to integrate them.. Ive never had to do any of this stuff under 98SE, but then again it doesn't like sata.

Could you give more details about your desktop? At the moment it's impossible to tell what kind of motherboard is used there. If you don't know it exactly then you can just run an application like Speccy and upload the report from it.
As for the fully updated source, please check this post for details.

Is the screen shot from your laptop? You will probably need one of the BlackWingCat's drivers. Download ati1208raid2k.cab, unpack it and use files from the SB8xx folder. You can just use nLite to add this driver to your source (the updated one from SOURCESS).

The files to integrate are already present in the other folders, aren't they?

When i try to use nlite to slip the cab file you told me to download, it says unsupported file for some reason, even though it says cab files are supported... Odd.

- Download "HFSLIP_ia.7z" from my website and unpack it to a location without spaces, ex. "C:\HFSLIP_ia".
- Inside "C:\HFSLIP_ia" create a folder called "SOURCE" ("C:\HFSLIP_ia\SOURCE") and copy your Windows 2000 source files (I386, etc.) there.
- Run the script ("hfslip-1.7.10_beta_J_v10.cmd") using the default settings and wait until it's finished. A new folder called "SOURCESS" with the updated source will be created. This step MUST be done under Windows NT 5.x (2000/XP/2003).
- Download "ati1208raid2k.cab" and unpack it anywhere.
- Run nLite, choose "C:\HFSLIP_ia\SOURCESS" as source and integrate the driver (make sure that textmode integration is selected) from "ati1208raid2k\SB8xx".
- Create a new ISO image with nLite, burn it on a CD (or prepare a bootable USB stick or a HDD based installation, etc.) and install the system.

- Download and install the latest daily version of UURollup. You can find it in the Archive (navigate to "Windows2000\UnofficialUpdatesRollup\Daily"). Download and unpack it, go to "update" and run "update.exe".
- Download the official AMD drivers from here. Try to install them using the official installer. If it doesn't work then unpack the installer and try to install them using the Device Manager and pointing to "Packages\Drivers\Display\XP_INF" in the unpacked installer folder.
- Can you see the whole 8 GB of RAM in the system? If not then open "%systemdrive%\boot.ini" (it's hidden by default and may be set to read-only) and change the line (it will be a little bit different depending on your setup):
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server" /FASTDETECT
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server" /PAE /FASTDETECT
I'd also recommend adding /3GB so the final line should say:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server" /PAE /3GB /FASTDETECT
Reboot and check the result. In case the system doesn't start press F8 and choose "VGA mode".
- Report the results.
Now, as for the laptops, there may be a problem with installation and it may be necessary to use some tricks. First please:
- Run Speccy on each of them but this time don't do any screen shots but rather click on "File" and choose "Save Snapshot". After that upload the two snapshots so that I can download and check them directly.
- Have you got access to the disks in the two laptops? What I mean is - are you able to easily take them out and connect to your desktop? I'm asking because sometimes it's pretty complicated depending on the notebook model.

As for the graphics, I had already tried that driver, but was looking for another because in the middle of the installation, the installer just disappears.. I dont know if the UUrollup would fix it, and i didn't get a chance to unpack the installer and do it manually, because device manager, along with control panel wouldn't open.
Edit: As for the graphics driver, when i unpack it and do it manually, it says that windows was unable to find a driver for the device.. And, the UUrollup did it again, so once again, Reinstalling.

Ok, I got the correct thing installed, and it lets me get the graphics installer past where i could get it before, BUT the screen resolution is messed up and i cant get to any of the keys to tell it to install, AND its doing just like the other stuff did- I cant use device manager (Doesnt open anything when i click it), I cant move things on my desktop, ect... Why does this happen?
(Sorry to double post)

Well, this means that you did NOT follow the instructions
There is a reason why I asked you to install the daily version:
- UURollup-v10c is already integrated in the source ("HFSLIP_ia.7z").
- UURollup-v10c uses the WildBill's kernel which may not be enough to run these graphic drivers.
- UURollup-v10c does not support PAE on Win2k Pro so you can't use 8 GB RAM with it.
- The daily version of UURollup uses the BlackWingCat's kernel together with a lot of other new files. They add many more APIs and other functionalities.
That's why I asked you to install the daily version, not the stable one. How come you're saying that there's no daily? Try here (download the latest one).
Edit: Don't even look at UURollup (Global) !!!

How about checking one of the older drivers?
You could try the latest of the 11.x versions and if it works then go up one by one (12.1, 12.2, etc.) to see which work and which don't work.
Posted 03 October 2012 - 06:04 AM
I found the daily.. But still, after installing it, the OS is unusable (Is there a way for me to uninstall or remove the files, so that I don't have to reinstall again), because I cant open anything, move files, use device manager, ect..
I'll try one of the older drivers, but i'm not sure the one I have doesn't work with it, because i cant use device manager, and the screen resolution is messed up, and i cant continue the installation, because i cant see what to click
