Disable Plug and Play

By sudhakar76 ·
I want to disable PNP(Plug and Play) in windows 2000. My requirement is, Windows 2000
should not detect any new device at the same time device manage should list already existing devices.
In BIOS, i gave "no" to the "Disable PNP with OS" option. But still win2000
detecting new devices.

When i disable plug and play servies, device manager didn't list any devices.

Can anybody help me out?

Thanks in Advance.

Disable Plug and Play

Unfortunately you've discovered that it's not going to be possible to have one and not the other by removing or disabling services. Why however are you seeking to do this? It may be possible to find another workaround. Win2k will not detect new devices unless they are physically present... and if they are present wouldn't you actually WANT them to work?
