How to install windows 2000 on un-upgraded hardware?
I have a problem installing Windows 2000 in my computer. You see, my computer runs on Windows 98 SE. Its specs are Gigabyte GA-7ZX; Athlon 1800; a 512MB RAM; and NVIDIA GeForce2 MX graphics card.
Now, I am trying to install Windows 2000 Pro on a new WD hard disk but 30 minutes on the installation process, my monitor flashes a blue screen saying that there is a hardware malfunction and that I need to see my manufacturer. I have already downloaded the Windows 2000 driver for NVIDIA but I cannot install it while running on Windows 98.
The thing is Windows 2000 would not also load unless I upgrade something. I have tried upgrading and cleaning the installation of both FAT32 and NTFS but I still get the same error message.
Can you explain to me what could be happening and can you give me suggestions on how I could fix this?
