Any hope of getting Windows 2000 running on my PC?

Then the drivers. You will need blackwingcat's ATi Forceware download here. Set the SATA Controller to IDE, or integrade drivers if possible. The Sound and ethernet should work downloading off of the Internet. I'm in doubt of the WiFi, but maybe it will also work with UUR. (like mine does)
So in short, do all this, and you should have Win2K running. I reccommend you secure it with avast! antivirus.

As for the daily UURollup v11, the link is right here: https://www.dropbox....tesRollup/Daily
I don't generally recommend using the daily in an open environment but all the latest ones are stable as I've been testing them out for quite a while now. The latest are usually down at the bottom. If you have any questions about UURollup in general, ask tomasz86 or me.

http://translate.google.comand copy/paste the website address link into it and tell it "From Japanese" and "To English". Any links found to actual "software" should not be clicked on, instead do it from the ORIGINAL webpage.

You need 48-bit LBA support. My copy of Win2K has it, and I could easily install onto the 500GB HDD. Just search on how to enable it, and you will have large HDD support.

You need to slipstream USP 5.1. That's how I did it. You will have to use a tool called nLite, download the USP 5.1 from the http://www.windows2000.tk archive, then download nLite, slipstream and burn a new CD. Then you can install Win2K, UR2, UUR and your drivers & software.
Just to show you what pae is, here is a screencast of my system with PAE enabled. As you can see, we have 4GB of RAM fully supported.

After it's finished you'll have an (almost) fully updated Windows 2000 source ready to be installed. You can add SATA drivers for your controller using nLite and I'd suggest doing that instead of IDE mode.
In order to use up to 8GB of memory you'll have to enable PAE but there may be actually a problem with the graphics driver. In the past I experienced a situation when the AMD graphics driver just wouldn't start when PAE was enabled. You should still try though. In the worst case the system will work without PAE and use between 2.75-3.75 GBs of memory.
@Tommy With blackwingcat's core files you can use up to 8GB of RAM in any Windows 2000 edition

The source needs to be at least slipstreamed to SP3 (better to SP4).
Then you need to edit setupreg.hiv to add the EnableBigLBA:

1) using WinISO rip the Win2k SP4 cz install I using to ISO file
2) using WinISO in the i386 dir fing and delete the SETUPREG.HIV file and then drag&drop the new file I get there into the install: http://www.msfn.org/...on-win2k-setup/
3) save the image and using Nero burn it to CDRW
4) try installing this on 320G drive, where previously it can't even format the HDD first 2G partition...
...and as I type this, the W2k on testing machine just finished its install! :-) Hooray! It works, LBA support is now "enabled by default"... Install done, everything works just great!

Remove RAID and all that, Just install Windows 2000 on the HDD on one partition, and Win7 on the other.
