Windows 2000 install issues. Help?
Posted 08 October 2012 - 11:23 PM
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.

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

Well, there exist PCI-E 1x cards too 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).

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?

Wait, So do you want me to use the v10c, or one of the daily versions of UURollup?
Here are the specs on the laptop: http://support.gatew.../P-78sp24.shtml It has the Intel PM45 Express Chipset, if that is helpful for the sata drivers.
Edit: Can I use the same file I already created with hfslip? It would be easier just to extract the already made ISO, use nlite put the sata driver in there, and make it back into an ISO (Would the amd sata driver conflict with anything if i did that?).
On the gateway site, it shows Sata ACHI drivers for windows 7. Would they work for 2k? The link is: http://support.gatew...=1&modelId=2388

UURollup-v10c is already integrated in your ISO. What I meant is that you should install the newest daily version of UURollup once the system has been installed and is running.

Once I install, I will install the latest version. Thanks!
Now all I have to do is wait on my hard drive..
Edit: When I go to slipstream it, when i'm in nlite, go to the iata76_cd2kd.zip, In the driver section there are 2 drivers. iaACHI, and iaStor. Which do i use? or do I use both? I just went along with the iaACHI, but there are quite a few options to which I can use. Which is correct? Another EDIT: I just integrated both, along with all of the options shown in the below picture. (Made in a separate iso incase this wont work)

Edit: The card is a Nvdia 9800M GTS. I assume the M is mobility, and that might explain the driver not working.
