The RU BIOS should be listing version 1.25 for the HPT controller. You need to get WIn2K/WinXP matching 1.25 driver & use the F6 function key on boot to integrate this 3rd party driver into the OS build.

OK, you're saying that you've tried version 1.25 or later of the RU BIOS, and you've told Win2k to load the Win2K v.1.25 driver for the HPT from your floppy disk, right? Then it accepts the 3rd party driver & goes on to just a lockup from that point? If so, I'd suggest that it's time for a shopping trip to pick up a Promise/Maxtor ATA100 controller card.
