Can I run Windows 2000 with my specs?


Recommended Posts

Hello, my name is Chris, and I was hoping of finding a way of installing Windows 2000 on my custom built computer, but since my motherboard is pretty new I think most of my drivers will fail to install, as most of them require Microsoft Windows XP and higher. Here are my specs listed bellow:

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H (Revision 1.0)

RAM: 11GBs of DDR3 RAM

Hard Drives: 60GB SSD Drive, 2 x 1TB Hard Disk Drives

Processor: AMD Athlon II X3 435 Processor with 3 Cores

Onboard Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 4200

Network: Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

any help shall be much appreciated.

You won't see more than 4 GB of ram, but i believe there is a ramdrive that you can load into xms memory (ie > 4GB).

You need to hack the install diskette to include the 48bit LBA addressing into it, but otherwise it would be fine. Check out this thread http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/75713-48-bit-lba-on-win2k-setup/ especially, my batch file for doing this.

And this is my new config:

amd fx 6300 3.50 ghz

asrock970 extreme3 r2.0

4 gb ram

Kingston ssdnow v300 120 gb

It will run on windows 2000? I upgraded my config yesterday (now I have windows 7 because I don't know if there are drivers for my new motherboard :/ ). Ssd works on win2k?
