Windows 2000 on 3rd Gen Intel PC.

19 posts in this topic

Hello MSFN Users.

I got a new PC with a Gigabyte H61 Motherboard.

I installed Windows 2000 on it, the installation went smooth and it has the USP 5.1 USB drivers.

I've gotten the USB to work, all the drivers installed, and the HD graphics also (used blackwingcat's forceware).

Update Rollup 2 and Daily UURollup 11 have been installed.

Specs:

Intel Pentium G2010 @ 2.80Ghz Dual Core, Ivy Bridge

Gigabyte H61 Mobo

4GB of DDR3 RAM

Intel HD Graphics.

The PC is only 2 days old, and it runs Win2k like a charm.

Here is how to fix the USB Problem on 3rd Gen systems. Something in the newer 2nd/3rd Gen Intel Chipsets prevents automatic USB install on Win2k due to a possible BSOD by using the old SP4 USB drivers (you need the newer UR1 or USP 5.1 drivers)

The solution: Manually install the drivers by running the device manager's Update driver wizard.

For the Graphics, I used Blackwingcat's forceware, alog with the latest (as of now) daily UURollup 11. It runs great, all 3d tests work, the system is running cool.

I will report on more later.

Does SpeedStep work? How much RAM does the system display?

Does SpeedStep work? How much RAM does the system display?

I don't use Speedstep, as far as I know, Win2k needs a driver for it to work. Last time I tried, BSOD. But on another PC, not this one.

Speedstep is useless, it lowers down performance, and no power user has been friends with it. Not to mention that all the drivers are

for laptops and not desktops.

And of course, I need to use the PAE hack. It displays 3.5GB.

Alright, I've turned on PAE and Win2K can recognize all 4GB of RAM! :thumbup

But on a more serious note, the SFC.DLL in the daily version of UUR is infected with a triojan, according to avast!.

I've remedied by using the UR1 version (dated 2004).

Avast is wrong. SFC.DLL is patched to disable Windows File Protection because it doesn't work properly with all the unofficial system files. Check virustotal. Only three scanners see it as trojan, four say the truth ("PatchedSFC") and the rest doesn't detect anything.

I wouldn't recommend using the UR1 version as turned on file protection may cause unexpected issues.

I guess I can configure avast! to not scan the file if this is the case.

UPDATE: I'm having troubles with PAE. The standby is unstable. So PAE is disabled for now. :(

Instead of modding the file, isn't it possible to disable the SFC via registry?

I have solved the MEI driver issue. All it took was to copy the hardware IDs to the Win2k section and it works great.

Hello Folks, according to your post :

For the Graphics, I used Blackwingcat's forceware, alog with the latest (as of now) daily UURollup 11. It runs great, all 3d tests work, the system is running cool.

I will report on more later.

I was not lucky to get the HD-Graphics driver running - it is always showing me some error - indicating that some other drivers are missing.

I have following Hardware:

Asus H61M-Pro, Pentium G2020, 4GB Ram - Installed Win2kPro SP4+SPR1+UP2 and UU Rollup 10d+ .NET FW till version4

I tried to find the "Blackwingcat´s forceware" but was not able to find it. Can You please help.

Thanks in advance

Which graphic card do you have?

Blackwingcat's site is here:

http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/

You will need to search on it for your graphic card, example:

http://en.lmgtfy.com/?q=ATI+Radeon+site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fblog.livedoor.jp%2Fblackwingcat%2F

(LMGTFY used only for visual explanation :))

Hi.

I don't recommended use ATI/AMD Graphic Card HD5xxx and later on Windows 2000.

You can find the important files on my blog with the following keyword on Google.

BM site:jp blackwingcat + what you want

for ex) BM site:jp blackwingcat nvidia

Although I said before, I want to know how to install cpu.inf on Windows 2000.

I don't use Speedstep, as far as I know, Win2k needs a driver for it to work.
I made my own utility to manually change CPU speed with speedstep on Pentium M and Core 2. Under DOS I use .COM program:

Here is a post about how to set Pentium M http://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=17226

Core 2 has a base voltage of .7125 instead of .700 and each step is .0125 instead of .016

I don't have newer Intel CPUs but information on register settings is probably on the web somewhere.

I will report on more later.

 

Sorry to ask, which driver you used finally, because i´m also trying to install on a similar configuration Win2k - but the graphics won´t work for me.

Configuration: Asus H61N-M, Pentium G2020, 4GB Ram ... i installed allready des USP5.1 with rollup 2 and the v11 Rollup.

Can you give some advice ?

tnx

I highly recommend that you use an nVidia GPU with Windows 2000. They run the best and the most stable from my experiences. Additionally, AMD CPUs work better with Windows 2000. You'll have issues with standby on your Intel system, but other than that, it should work.
