Hello my Win2K friends! Has anyone here been able to successfully run SoftICE under Windows 2000 SP4? If so, what version of SoftICE did you use? did you have any updates for that version installed? any special registry settings or other settings you had to modify? any updates beyond SP4 installed on your Win2K? what hardware did you run it on? what specific video card and what video driver version did you use? I've combed the Internet and tried just about everything that I've been able to dig up but SoftICE keeps crashing out when the machine boots and causes the machine to restart in an infinite loop. Thanks in advance!
Hey guys, I'm new here & this is my first post. I really hope this hasn't been brought up before because I already searched the forum & found nothing useful... Prologue: I'm trying to build a very small & basic installation of Windows 2000 that doesn't even have network support, it will be used primarily for games & some other programs. I will put it in a VHD (Virtual Hard Disk) file then copy that file to a USB Stick, that file will then be loaded into RAM (yep, the whole VHD file) & Windows will be started & used directly from there. I'm following THIS guide if anyone wants to know. SO, I've already used nLite to make several "lite" builds of 2000 before but this time it looks like I stripped the install folder too much to cause some problems. Note that that these problems that I'm about to mention never happened before & only happened with my latest, super stripped build so it's certainly something that I REMOVED that caused them... Here we go: 1. Setup can't find drivers for things like Battery, Volume (NOT audio) & something called "hdc" besides some other things, I'm pretty sure I didn't remove any drivers related to those, especially Battery, you can check my .INI file at the bottom. 2. Serial Key no longer works; I tried my personal one many times & even tried different ones from the Internet, no luck. So that's about it for now, the Serial Key prompt is the farest I've went into setup anyway, any help is appreciated... BTW I'm using a Windows 2000 SP4 CD as my base, you can view & download my settings file HERE (Also attatched in this document). Cheers! Stripp3d.ini
