for windows 2000, have you tried to install it to a vhd file in windows xp/7 host file system? due to w2k's low version NTFS support, it may not work. VBoot uses NTFS driver to load the vhd file. Wonder if possible to update w2k ntfs driver.

Hi huisinro,

I installed Windows 2000 on an .img file hosted by a Windows XP system. I will try to install on a .vhd file. If I am not wrong, a .vhd file is basically an .img file appended with a special header sized 512 bytes.

that's no difference, raw image or vhd. what is your disk size?

we tried to install w2k to a modern pc, never succeed due to the lower version of NTFS inside win2k.

Hi huisinro,

The .img file has a size of 1 Gb. Windows 2000 moves the page file to the host partition and that's not a problem for me.

Hi huisinro,

Host disk size = 160 Gb having 3 partitions.

C = 49.9 Gb ( partition hosting the virtual .img disc )
E = 49.5 Gb
F = 49.5 Gb
