I e-mailed the company that makes InstantCD. I only have the demo, so not sure if they will help me (they asked for a serial no.). Windows 2000 does not have compatabiliy mode like XP.
I didn't mention that I also have a conflict with the Primary IDE Channel. I posted this on other forums and have not got much help
(this happened much earlier):
Windows 2000 was working OK, but Ultra DMA could not be enabled
(at the time I did not know that SP2 fixes this problem & DMA works).
So I downloaded the latest VIA 4-in-1 drivers, uninstalled the older ones, installed the update and then things got even worse.
An SCSI/RAID driver was installed (was NOT installed before). This is causing a conflict with the Primary IDE Channel. I “uninstalled” it and it still shows in the Device Manager (now with a yellow exclamation mark).
This is what it says in Primary IDE Channel, under the Device Status tab:
This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12). If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.
Both the Primary IDE Channel and the SCSI/RAID controller are on IRQ 14. Uninstalling the SCSI driver doesn’t get rid of it, it comes
back as the computer boots up. Installing SP2 didn’t help either (would if I could get rid of SCSI).
