Quote from: "Dr. Kraus"For the past 6 too 7 hours I've been trying to install Win2K on a Dell Poweredge 600SC server so It can be used for my school's robotics club (Which i'm a part of) because we need a system that can run Win2k for Lego Mind storms. The huge part of the server giving me problems is the RAID card (Top of the line card went for around $400 in its day) because of the drivers needed for 2K to boot. After a while I was able to get the drivers and it took me an extra 2 and 1/2 hours to get the drivers on a floppy disk without errors or any problems. When I saw the drivers install correctly and the formatting of the drive to start a huge smile came across my face, finally! this long and frustrating journey must be at an end! WRONG.The Win2K disk was missing one file, one tiny file that told me that I wasn't going to be installing this OS anytime soon on this server.mraid2k.sysThe name of this file will linger in my head for the remainder of this week (probably more). Now the MGCS (Mobile-Ghetto-Computer-System) will have to be used while this Dell Server tests my patience.DAMN YOU DELL POWEREDGE 600SC, DAMN YOU!!!!
