How to install W2K onto a 400G HD?

I'm trying to install W2K into a 48 Gig partition on a 400GB drive, but I'm not having any success. First, I tried to ghost a W2K install from an identical partition of a 160 GB drive, but there was something wrong with the swap space because W2K would complain about lack of virtual memory, but it would never allow me to set it because of an endless re-start cycle. (I never given a chance to click "Properties")

Installing onto the 400G drive yields a BSOD with inaccessible boot partition. I already figured out that probably what I would need is a regkey called EnableBigLBA=1, but how can I set it before install, and I don't think it has any effect before SP3.

I also tried to set the "capacity jumper", but apparently it's not functional on that drive (ST3400620A) since POST shows 400GB, regardless of that jumper.

Any idea?

TIA
