Intel Q45 Express chipset and Win2000?


Recommended Posts

I've just acquired a Dell Optiplex 960 quad core computer with a Seagate SATA hard drive.  When I try to install Windows 2000 I get error messages that show it's not recognizing the SATA hard drive...and during the installation it tries to format the hard drive and fails.


This computer came with Vista installed and I created a new partition to install Win2000 on.  But during the installation the partitions aren't named correctly and called "unformated or damaged".  I can boot up into Windows Vista and it's working normally.


Are there Windows 2000 SATA drivers for this chipset?
