What is last version of VirtualBox to support Win2K?


Recommended Posts

Current version 3.2.8 gives immediate error upon install that it's not a supported Host OS.

Old versions are available: http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds

But no documentation discusses which was the latest version that still did support Windows 2000?

Any ideas?

Here we see currently XP and up are supported. http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch01.html#id2641244

I have a feeling the kernel device drivers are what prevents Windows 2000 from working as HOST OS?

I'm mainly concerned about running 2000 with Mandriva, PClinuxOS or Linux Mint as the host OS.


You can actually use 2.0.4 on Windows 2000 but you'll need to download some modified files from Blackwingcat's website.

Personally I'd stick with Vmware Player v3 which works on Windows 2000:
