Hi huisinro,

I tested VBoot v2 to install Windows 2000 on a raw image file but the issue reported in the message below is continuing :

vmlite.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&a...=17&id=6846#6858

I always get the error 7B : INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE after the message Press F6 to ... is displayed in text mode phase of the Windows 2000 installation.

Code:


menuentry "Windows 2000 Install Step 1" {
  vboot harddisk="(hd0,1)/win2000.img" floppy=(hd0,1)/vboot/vboot-2k.img cdrom=(hd0,1)/w2000.iso boot=cdrom



Replacing vboot-2k.img with vboot.img didn't have any effect

Thanks for reporting the bug. Honestly speaking, we still haven't done much test on Windows 2000. Will debug this over next few days.

Make sure to press F6 for Windows 2000, then press S to select the floppy.

It's about time to make windows 2k install to work, we will try to update in next build in a few days, with some support to install 2k to a vhd.

Hi huisinro,

This time, I hit F6 to select the virtual floppy. Setup detected successfully the driver. I selected the virtual partition marked as I to start the installation. C, D and E are my real Windows partitions. The report of Windows 2000 installer :

131070 Mb Disk 0 at ID 0 on bus on atapi

C : unformatted or damaged
D : NTFS
E : NTFS

1020 MB Disk 0 at ID 0 on bus 0 on vbootdsk

( I created here a new partition marked as I by setup to install Windows 2000 )

I selected "I" to continue but setup reports that my C driver is damaged or unformatted and states that it should be formatted. I had to stop the installation as C is my real Windows XP system partition.

I will wait for the next release of vboot to test again Windows 2000
