|I tried to get Windows 2000 working on the Webplayer, but have not had much luck and ended up reverting to Windows 95 (troubles with Win98). I did spend a few days on it and got a few things working, however. I started by hooking up my Toshiba 8.5MM 4.3GB harddrive up to a Dell desktop machine, and installing Windows 2000 and everything from there. I also bought a USB Zip drive to transfer files to and from the Webplayer. Of course, after all my hard work, I was greeted with a Stop Error (blue screen) when I transplanted the drive into the Webplayer. Turns out that you have to apply a registry patch in order to get Windows 2000 to recognize the Webplayer's hardware when you transplant the drive. That I found in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at this address: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q271/9/65.ASP|
After that, Windows 2000 started, and spent a good half hour finding hardware. It installed most everything OK except for Audio and Video, as was noted before. I got the Video drivers to work (I'm not sure if they were the same drivers that everyone has; I spent a while searching the web for Win2000 drivers) but the Audio/PCI Bridge drivers never worked. Other than that it was stable and worked very well. I would still like to put Windows 2000 on, so if anyone finds some audio drivers that work, drop me a line.
