Unable to install win2000

By dalecowley ·
People I need help, I'm trying to install win2000 on my Asus A7V. I have tried
everything that I have ever heard off, still no joy.
I have a udma 66 Hdd going into the ata 66 (also tried the ata 100
connector) I have tried to run the installationspecifying the controller
driver ( F6) I have the latest BIOS's from asus/promise, all I can ever get
is the "inaccessible boot device" I have tried both the 66/100 drivers, I
have also tried to specify each of them and tried not specifying them.Does
anyone have any idea's that may get this Os installed?

As It sounds the OS is not able to see the HDD even after loading the driver in the beginning of the setup. a work around for this could be to connect the HDD to the IDE controller on the MDB. Just load everything and once you have loaded the drivers in win2k reconnect the hdd to the controller.
That should get you on your way.

The motherboard has the connectors, this Mb comes with 4 connectors, 2 ATA 100's and @ 66's, these are not seperate cards, i have tried to conect to both of these in the primary slot and the secondary slot both to no avail.
