Windows 2000 on a Z490 based machine

Recommended Posts



I recently built a new pc based on intel's z490 platform with an i7-10700k, and wanted to see how well 2k would work on it. This is the result.

Audio (didn't test much so it might work)

Got USB3 to work with PAE under a new driver. Also screwed with the audio driver some more, it's fine now as well.

Neat! Where did you get patched ACPI? I tried to install on a Z370, got a 0x00000000A5 error.

Device Manager indicates that he used the MPS Multiprocessor HAL, which doesn't use ACPI. I just tried that HAL on X58 (which also works fine with ACPI) and confirmed that it does kill hyperthreading, along with Enhanced Intel SpeedStep.
