I've been trying to install Windows NT5.0 build 2000 on VMware and Virtualbox. On VMware I get the message that the "virtual CPU has entered the shutdown state" once the installer gets to "Setup is starting Windows 2000", and on VirtualBox I get the "Guru Meditation" error once the installer gets to "Setup is loading files (Windows NT File System (NTFS))..."

Could this be a configuration issue since both VM softwares detect it as Windows 2000, is this build broken, or are there some lines I have to add to the config files.

Help with installing this in VMware would be preferable since it's my software of choice - VirtualBox is too simplistic and the UI looks like it was designed by a 5 year old child.

You may need these two extra steps as workaround (VMware):

1. When creating the VM, choose "Windows NT" as the guest OS
2. Open the created .vmx, add a line acpi.present = "FALSE"

It should be fine to stick with latest hardware compatibility (15.x) and/or adjust guest RAM and hard disk size as necessary. Just remember to set the correct BIOS date and make sure time synchronization is turned off.

I added the ACPI.present false line as I did with whislter, but not the others, I'll give them a try

On a second test I had the following results:

- VM hangs at "Setup is starting Windows 2000" if I don't add ACPI.present = "FALSE"
- VM goes to CPU shutdown state if I choose any "Windows 2000" options for guest OS when creating the VM

So both steps seem to be needed for the workaround.

After setting my VM as Windows NT during creation, and adding the acpi.present = "FALSE" line to my VMX, I'm now installing build 2000 in VMware, thanks for the help!
