W2K compatable motherboards
« on: September 10, 2009, 09:38:39 AM »
I need to rebuild several computers ( replace motherboard ) but unable to find new motherboard that will support W2K. I have proprietary video capture card and drivers have not been developed for XP or vista OS.

MBoards are not OS specific...simply choose one that meets your needs.
I've never heard of a MBoard that Win2K won't run on...unless it's a dinosaur.

      We guess he means a new motherboard that has drivers that work in windows 2000 Professional. He would have to look at the install CD to see if it lists windows 2000 drivers. Most Mothers made for the consumer market have driver sets tah t go back to windows 98SE. So I would think that Windows 2000 would always be included.
