Make sure you have the latest service pack for Windows 2000 - this fix will NOT work on service pack 2 or earlier.
The reason you cannot see the drive right is that 2000 doesn't have big LBA enabled, and thus has a 137GB drive size limit.
To enable 48-bit LBA large-disk support in the registry:
1.Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe). 2.Locate and then click the following key in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Atapi\Parameters 3.In the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value: Value name: EnableBigLba Data type: REG_DWORD Value data: 0x1 4. Quit Registry Editor.
You should now reboot, and then you should be able to use your drive.
First off, there is a big difference between windows 2000 and xp.
She needs her windows 2000 install disks and to re-install windows. Then she needs to install her service packs onto it. Either that or upgrade to windows xp. Id suggest she upgrade if she has decent hardware(memory, cpu and hard drive space)
There is no shortcut or work around unless you want to start using pirated stuff, which is probably not a good idea since most of that stuff is just an avenue for viruses and backdoor programs.
Hi there. When it get to the point where it cannot install the service packs, if it gives you an option to skip the files then do that and let XP install as usual, when its installed perform a Microsoft update and update the machine, this will no doubt take hours because if the disk is 4 years old it will want service packs 2 and 3 installing so make sure you set the computer to never shut down or go to sleep.
I know this may sound mundane, but did you load the correct set of windows drivers for the Intel 845 chipset? I mistakenly loaded the Home drivers onto a unit I tried to install Pro on and I got all sorts of errors.
trust me on this... 1 gb is not enough to have a fast startup with vista... i've 2gb and the vista occupies 45% i.e. 900mb without running any application.... this is condition after disabling some graphics elements...
Your computer can support Windows XP, which has better hardware support and compatibility with the 2003 Office suit. XP also updates your hardware automatically once you are on the internet. You might want to try this.
Keep in mind that the older the Operating System, the harder it is for Office suites to compat. Newer Operating systems have better support for your computing. If you don't have HDD problems, the BIOS should not prevent you from loading SP2 for Win2000.
1. The SP2 Source Disk may have a problem
2. The Win 2000 you have already loaded may be missing components, preventing the SP2 to load.
2. Notton Antivirus versions and the 2003 office both reject Win 2000. They just don't like it; it's getting too old.
