KernelEx for Win2000

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm trying to get Windows 2000 on an old laptop than was released in 2007, but neither Vista or XP run how they should, so I guess that Windows 2000 is my only option. I've got far (I mean that's how I consider it, thanks to the kernel extension, of course), managed to install latest Firefox for XP and VLC for XP, but one thing that I just can't get to work are .msi packages (my antivirus and java). Any help?

You should try putting it trough the AppComp.cmd file and run it like that. If that doesn't work, you should try and install an older version of Firefox (maybe 49).

Not sure about KernekEx, but using BWC's Extended Core, I can run the latest Firefox ESR on 2000 perfectly. At one point (with an older version of Extended Core), bookmarking didn't work, but that seems to have been fixed in the most recent update (I'll have to test more thoroughly, but the stock bookmarks do show up now, and they didn't before, sooo...)

I'm not sure I can reproduce it, but bookmarks simply wouldn't work.

I think it was with 2.8d.

BWC, thanks for the new direct link on your blog to Windows Update. I could not find anything on Google about the change in the URL and for posready 2009 I was getting a redirect to "your browser is not supported" message. Be nice if Microsoft would provide some info regarding this OS, or maybe they have and I just couldn't find it.

@blackwingcat

Blackwingcat did you create or found a working SATA AHCI driver to install Windows 2000 using F6?  My Z170 has no IDE controller and no SATA IDE mode for legacy install.

Also any new news or update on getting Intel USB 3.0 xHCI to work on Windows 2000 without 3rd party add in PCIe card?

get it from fernandos webpage the winraid one,its a txtmode driver so it could work or not work since windows 2000 doesnt fully support txtmode drivers.
