Windows 2000 BETA drivers for testing purposes

Recommended Posts

In this topic I'll post my modified drivers for Windows 2000 with SP4 (no Updates Rollup or Extended Kernel needed).
For testing purposes only, so beware. If considered stable, will be promoted to Final.

- Intel Matrix Storage 7.6.9.1002 (AHCI/RAID)

- AMD(Hudson?) / Intel / VIA XHCI USB3.1 driver 1.1.0.0276

  • Driver only: 276BETA_W2K.7z
    Has the same issues with PAE as XP.
    Don't know if Windows 2000 is also affected by qword ACPI issue (the XHCI controller won't initialize and reports Error code 10).
    In this case, please try it in MPS Uniprocessor/Multiprocessor mode.

About testing:
- Unfortunately I don't have any optical driver to install Windows 2000 on my Coffee Lake PC, as USB-based install won't work with drivers integrated.
- Both drivers were tested on VirtualBox with no issues.
- Both drivers passed XP SP3 testing on my Coffee Lake PC with absolutely no issues, even USB-based install was possible.

- Installed Windows 2000 SP4 (with drivers integrated) in MPS Multiprocessor mode (ACPI doesn't work here) on VirtualBox.
- Followed the instructions in this question: exporting a virtualbox VDI to a harddrive to boot it natively
- Plugged in a PS/2 keyboard, booted Windows 2000 and proceeded with all driver installs.
- Used the Composite devices solution outlined here: Universal Serial Bus (USB) Interface drivers (scroll down)
- And the result is:

Driver works fine with both Intel and VIA controllers.

Will there be a XP x64 version of this? Or does it already work on XP x64?

Just tested with BWC's Extended Core and the XHCI USB3.1 driver also has issues with PAE enabled.
What a shame. Will update first post with this info.
