Hi! Today, i was trying to install Windows 2000 Beta 3 (Build 1946) on VirtualBox, everything is good, but when on setup wizard and "installing devices" step, the screen is showing unexpected black screen. I have restarted the installation 3 times but it didn't effect.
Anyone know how to install it properly?

RAM is okay, but maybe it's the timebomb

What's the rest of your VM configuration?

It could be the common IDE bug, you can look it up on how to bypass it.

The display driver crashes during device installation if you try installing most builds from 18xx to about mid-20xx in VirtualBox. You can either try doing the rest of the installation effectively blind (not recommended), or you can try upgrading to 1946 from NT 4. For some reason, the display driver doesn't crash during upgrades.

It's not the IDE bug in this case, as the IDE bug has different symptoms that manifest later in install. To quote the VirtualBox manual:

Quote:
When installing Windows 2000 guests, you might run into one of the following issues:
Installation reboots, usually during component registration.
Installation fills the whole hard disk with empty log files.
Installation complains about a failure installing msgina.dll.


These builds should still be affected by it however IIRC, so you should probably use the workaround (provided in the quote below) anyway:

Quote:
VBoxManage setextradata "VM name" "VBoxInternal/Devices/piix3ide/0/Config/IRQDelay" 1

I recommend using VMware or Pcem to install Windows NT 5.0
