Making Windows 2000 up-to-date MINI FAQ

Problem 1: Installing QEMU in Windows 2000 host.

Starting with QEMU version 0.10.x and later is compatible with Windows XP or later due to IPv.6 API. Let's discover what is different. I recommend using Dependency Walker for Win32 utility by Steve P. Miller. It found only three different functions from WS2_32.DLL - Windows Sockets v.2 API:

  • freeaddrinfo
  • getaddrinfo
  • getnameinfo
All of them are suitable for IPv.6 only, and since Windows 2000 does NOT support it by default, we can remove them without any problems by simple patch:
Replace these text occurrences from qemu.exe PE import table: to (any WS2_32.DLL function that will fit in 12 letters, lowercased as is): Pad them with zero's if needed (freeaddrinfo).

Tested with following versions of QEMU for Win32:
Problem 2: Installing Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 32bit in Windows 2000 host.

The Virtual PC 2007 installer does not allow VPC 2007 to be installed on Windows 2000. Just like Windows Defender, the fix is simple. You simply have to remove the limitation from the installer. Read the following to fix this issue:
Download Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 SP1 (32-bit)
You will also need Microsoft Orca v3.1 (search internet for orca.exe + orca.dat tool or inside of Microsoft's Installer SDK):

Once you have VPC 2007 and Orca downloaded start the VPC 2007 install. Do not click on any buttons or do anything. Just leave the install sitting there. Now go to your 'C:Documents and SettingsUSERNAMELocal SettingsTemp' You should see a file there named 'Virtual_PC_2007_Install.msi'. This is the file you want. Copy this file to your 'My Documents' folder. Open 'Virtual_PC_2007_Install.msi' with Orca. On the left-hand side of the screen go to 'CustomAction' On the right-hand side of the screen choose 'CA_CheckIfWeCanInstall' and press the delete key. Go to File and then Save. Not Save As.
Problem 3: Installing Sun/Innotek VirtualBox in Windows 2000 host.
Solution: Patching Guide

Orca can be used to remove 'NOT VersionNT=500' from the 'LaunchCondition' entry in the VirtualBox's MSI installer. This will allow VirtualBox to install and work properly on a Windows 2000 host. Here is the testing protocol:

  • Sun/Innotek VirtualBox 1.6.0 - 1.6.6 - installs and works ok.
  • Sun/Innotek VirtualBox 2.0.0 - 2.0.10 - installs ok, but when I start a VM, is shows error in log:
  • Sun/Innotek VirtualBox 2.1.x, 2.2.x, 3.0.x - MSI install failed.

Problem 4: Intel® AHCI/RAID ICH6,ICH7,ICH8,ICH9,PCH storage controllers

Intel® Matrix Storage Manager 7.0 supports ICH6/7/8 in AHCI/RAID mode.

Intel® Matrix Storage Manager 7.6 supports ICH6/7/8/9 in AHCI/RAID mode.
Intel® ICH8,ICH9,PCH in AHCI mode not listed above are also supported if BIOS is AHCI-capable. You have to patch some driver inf's to achieve this.

How to check this support: if IMSM (any version) support any of ICH9-based chipsets, it MUST support ICH9 AHCI or any other ICH9-based chip. For example, latest IMSM 8.9 supports ICH7/8/9/10,PCH chipsets.

How to make ICH8,ICH9,PCH AHCI patch:

Change iaahci.inf:

  1. Add this line in section [ControlFlags]:
  2. Add these lines in sections [INTEL_HDC], [INTEL_HDC.ntamd64]:
  3. Add this line in section [Strings]:

Change TxtSetup.OEM:

  1. Change this line in section [Defaults] to:
  2. Add this line in section [scsi]:
  3. Add these lines after [scsi] section:
  4. Add these lines after [Config.iaStor] section:

Dunno why support for Windows 2000 Professional and Windows 2000 Datacenter Server is not declared. However, I see no difference between these editions of W2K, only different sofware packaging (client/server) and pricing, licensing.

I have a *success* installing Windows 2000 Professional in AHCI Mode with Intel® Desktop Board DQ963FX ICH8-Based mobo.
Here is a Intel® Matrix Storage Manager log-file from Windows 2000 Professional:

Installation process:

  1. In normal AHCI/RAID-compatible BIOS there are maximum of four working modes of ICH SATA controller:
    1. SATA AHCI and/or SATA RAID - if your BIOS doesn't have such options, your motherboard is not AHCI/RAID compatible so no storage driver needed and you have no chance (and no need) to install IMSM.
    2. SATA Native and/or IDE Legacy - these modes are supported in Windows 2000 by default atapi.sys driver.
  2. Set HDD controller working mode in BIOS to SATA Native or IDE Legacy mode.
  3. Install Windows 2000 (XP, 2003). No nLite or driver integration is needed.
  4. Install Intel® INF Update.
  5. Extract IMSM exe-file and get access to individual files i.e. iaahci.inf.
  6. Patch iaahci.inf.
  7. In Device Manager manually change driver for SATA HDD controller from ICH8/IDE to ICH8/AHCI by picking iaahci.inf.
  8. Reboot and change HDD controller mode in BIOS to SATA AHCI.
  9. Now system boots and it is in AHCI Mode!
  10. If you have problems after rebooting, just set back HDD controller working mode in BIOS to SATA Native or IDE Legacy mode and after reboot press F8 and use Last known good hardware configuration - Windows 2000 (XP, 2003) will return to HDD compatibility mode.
  11. OPTIONAL STEP: Reinstall full (but with patched inf's) IMSM over existing driver for Matrix Storage Manager GUI Interface.

Starting with Matrix Storage Manager there is NO support for Windows 2000. So it is impossible to use ICH9 and later with Windows 2000 in AHCI/RAID mode with recent Matrix Storage Manager. The problem is that iaStor.sys driver from Matrix Storage Manager and later uses some APIs that are absent in Windows 2000. Third party blackwingcat's blog provides patched Intel Matrix Storage Manager 7.6 iaStor.sys driver for Windows 2000.

Problem 5: Intel® Graphics drivers and Intel® Embedded Graphics drivers (IEGD)

Intel® Windows XP (32-bit) Graphics drivers (below version 14.41) are compatible with Windows 2000 but some of them are buggy: in OpenGL support libraries: has missing import KERNEL32.GetModuleHandleExA. I get these libraries from earlier Intel® driver ( win2k_xp14362.zip, for example). And it was ok for me.

Newer Intel® Windows XP (32-bit) Graphics drivers (version 14.41 and above) does not have such issue, but has another one in main driver library: has missing import NTOSKRNL._vsnwprintf. No other issues exist. It is possible to patch this file i.e. replace it in IMPORTS table with analog, which exists in Windows 2000 NTOSKRNL.EXE, f.e. _vsnprintf, and using jmps [EB xx] instruction make sure that it was skipped in code since _vsnwprintf not equals _vsnwprintf.

Custom resolutions support for Intel® Graphics:

Starting with productional version 14.34 (Windows 2000/XP/2003) and 15.9 (Windows Vista/7/8) it is possible to add custom screen resolutions in control panel applet, here: Graphics: Custom Resolutions & Modes.

But in some drivers this option is hidden, to restore it:

  • If driver is not installed - then before installing modify in igxp32.inf: to i.e. insert ';'. Note that since we modify igxp32.inf, this breaks WHQL compliance.
  • If driver is installed - then delete key 4571 from registry hive:

Intel® Windows XP (32-bit) Embedded Graphics drivers (IEGD) are compatible with Windows 2000:

but IEGD 8.0.x and newer are buggy:

In most cases IEGD Graphics driver does not provide OpenGL support through ICD driver DLL, only DirectX.

Recommended replacements:

Don't forget to recalculate checksum of modified files. You can use editbin tool from Microsoft's Visual Studio or Platform SDK:

I succesfully test these Intel® chipset families with Windows 2000:
Problem 6: AMD/ATI Radeon Graphics drivers

Latest OFFICIAL driver (as AMD/ATI shows here) for Windows 2000 is Catalyst™ 6.2 (February 2006).
Drivers line from Catalyst™ 6.2 to Catalyst™ 7.4 (April 2007) is Windows 2000 compatible without any patches. They has support for ATI Radeon™ X1??? series cards.
Both of them does NOT support ATI Radeon™ HD 2xxx/3xxx/4xxx series cards.

But if you have such card (HD 2xxx and later), how to make it work in Windows 2000?
You can make some simple changes in driver's inf file to make it Windows 2000 compatible.
Note that after such 'conversion' driver WHQL digital signature will be broken, it is NORMAL.
Copy XP's inf file to different file, for example: to Note that from this time we will change content of C2_55811.inf

  1. OPTIONAL: Change: to
  2. Change: to
  3. Change to
  4. Remove any occurrence of: and add these lines to [ati2mtag_RemoveDeviceSettings] section:
  5. OPTIONAL: To any [ati2mtag_?] section (where ? is chip family, for example, RV535) add line: and add corresponding section [ati2mtag.DelReg]:
  6. Remove [SourceDisksNames.ia64] section.

For example, this line: adds 720x576 DVD PAL mode with 8, 16, 24 and 32-bit color depth.

Third party blackwingcat's blog provides recent patched Radeon Graphics driver for Windows 2000.

Lenovo provides updated driver (based on Catalyst 7.7, 8.593.100.7-090929a, 2009/11/26) for Windows 2000 (and XP 32-bit): Video driver (ATI Radeon 200M, X300, X600, FireGL V3200) for Windows 2000/XP (1yd175ww.exe). It also supports these chip families:
Problem 7: Intel® Multi-Core, Hyperthreading processors

Unlike Windows NT 3/4, Windows 2000 fully supports any SMP-based system with ACPIBIOS. This includes all recent Intel® processors starting from Pentium 4® family.

* When your CPU has Hyperthreding technology i.e. has logical (not physical) processors, Windows 2000 threats them differently: each logical core threated as physical. So if you have Dual-Core Processor with HT (most of Intel® Extreme Edition CPUs), only two of four logical cores are accessible in Windows 2000 Professional OS (without patching, of course, which leads to license violation).

Core 2 family note: When you are installing Windows 2000, system may hang during installation process. So I recommend for stability reasons:

  1. In textmode 'blue-phase' of setup process press F5 and select Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC from menu of Hardware Abstraction Layer's:
  2. Disable Core Multiplexing or similar options in BIOS.

After successful installation - enable BIOS options and upgrade HAL to ACPI Multiprocessor PC.

Another CPU issues:

Problem 8: Hidden control panel items (covers also Windows XP/2003)

Windows 2000 has two hidden control panel items:

  • Console (%SystemRoot%SYSTEM32console.dll)
  • Hot Pluggable Devices (%SystemRoot%SYSTEM32hotplug.dll)

Copy them to *.cpl and see two new control panel items. Also when you run Users and Passwords control panel applet starts.
Problem 9: I want to see HICOLOR icons in system tray

Solution: Patch explorer.exe
Patch code #1:
Patch code #2: Problem 10: I want to install Windows 2000 onto hard drive larger than 137 Gb

Solution: Modify installation CD media
According to this article KB305098: 48-Bit LBA Support for ATAPI Disk Drives in Windows 2000, Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP3 and later) supports 48-Bit LBA addressing.

However, when you are performing clean installation of Windows 2000 from CD (or from HDD, floppies) with unmodified distributive any data above 137 Gb will be unaccessible. Only after changing REG_DWORD registry parameter EnableBigLba 137 Gb+ support will be enabled.

Initial registry hive resides in I386setupreg.hiv file on installation CD. You can open it via regedt32.exe using Load hive.. option and enter REG_DWORD registry parameter EnableBigLba there:

After this modification, you can build new installation CD, which will be 48-Bit LBA aware. If you don't wish to burn CD, you can start installation from HDD or floppies.
Problem 11: Matrox G200e, G200eW, G200eH, G200eR Integrated Graphics drivers

Solution: Matrox G200e integrated graphics line started in 2005-2006 mostly for server motherboards and it is derived from original Matrox MGA G200 graphics adapter made in 1998-1999 but G200e is not 100%-compatible with it and uses separate-made drivers!!!

Matrox Corp. itself does not provide any support for these graphics chips, but server motherboard makers (Dell, IBM, HP, SuperMicro, Tyan) provide it.

There are many types of G200e integrated graphics chips, here are the drivers:

HP (i.e. Hewlett Packard) has released Windows 2000 compatible WHQL driver for this mostly server-oriented integrated videoadapter which doesn't have OpenGL and Direct3D accleration - only DirectDraw. It has 32 Mb VRAM only, G200eW (Nuvoton/Winbond) has 16 Mb VRAM. I use version marked as Matrox Video Driver for HP ProLiant 100-series Servers. In some cases it marked as Windows 2003 (32-bit) only driver. It is not true, this driver is Windows 2000 compatible. Link is here, its version is, released in 2008: Direct link (HP's FTP)
