Ok, I have successfully gotten to the point where the install reboots and tries to go into the GUI section of the installation. How ever when the GUI is being started my screen displays nothing but vertical black and white stripes!
I have two video cards, a Matrox P650 (PCIe x16) and a Matrox G550 (PCIe x1).
When I remove those cards and use the on-board video the GUI setup works fine, but if I plug in my P650 the gui produces the stripes. The cards support Win2K.
Is anyone aware of any issues in regards to this?
Sadly my BIOS doesn't give any options to disable the on-board video, nor to select which video has primary status. So I'm currently thinking that the issue might be that the windows install gets confused as to what video port to use. I have tried plugging my monitor into the other video ports just to see if the signal jumped, but they are all off .
As a side note, when using BartPE on the system the video card works just fine. Sadly I can't try my original Win2K CD, as my system only has SATA HD that are 300gb and 500gb - so the original CD sees the drives as corrupted.
Is there a way to slipstream some setting so that the setup GUI is forced to use the correct video card?
I saw on http://www.windows2000.tk/updates/ that there is a patch for the video, but the link is dead. Does anyone have a way to get this file still? Its called "Windows2000-KB829884-x86-Global.exe". According to the page it is "Unofficial (blackwingcat, translated to English by Google Translate, recompiled by tomasz86)".
Thanks in advance.
