I have tried numerous times to try to install Windows 2000 Professional on this PC using an IDE and a SATA drive and no luck. I get a bluescreen message which basically indicates that the SATA or IDE cable is bad (The IDE or SATA cable is not bad since I checked it) or cannot find the hard drive storage drivers to load the OS. https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-fix-stop-0x0000007b-errors-2624109
I also tried to add all of the hard drive mass storage drivers for Windows 2000 on the dell driver site and slip-stream them using NLite and then install Windows 2000 and no luck.
There is also no jumper on the IDE hard drive when I test it.
Here is the motherboard that I have.
Any help would be appreciated.
