    Microsoft Windows 2000 Drive Problem

    by melebisnuessrfwe ·

    I put Windows 2000 on my dell (although not what it comes with, it does support it) and I cannot get the video driver installed
    on non VGA and VGA Mode I get these 2 errors:
    INF Error The driver could not be found
    Setup was not able to complete the installation. Try to setup your display adapter with a standard VGA driver before running setup.

      I ran W2000 for years.

      But you left out too many details for me to begin.

      One of the annoying install issues of W2000 is that a slight smudge on the CD. And there was never a supported method for install from USB drives.

      I don’t mind discussing your install failures but have to pause until all the details are revealed.

      Final Note: Windows 2000 even with all current service packs must never be connected to the Internet. There are unpatched vulnerabilities that worms and more will infect this install very quickly.

      If I needed to run W2000 today I’d install in it a Virtual Machine. It’s been years but I did install it in VirtualBox. Read https://www.minitool.com/news/windows-2000-iso.html
