Best Answer:

Luke Watson: Was win 2000 supported still (on new PC's) in 2005, … only just
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_20…
as XP superceeded it so quickly afterwards

I would look at installing it on an older processor / older set of cards
a 2005 PC probably was only ever tested against win XP…
or a VM of PC that old.. (circa 2000)

Other answer:

Luke Watson:
That error (0xc0000034 ) usually means it cannot load a device driver, for Win2k…
Reset the BIOS to "safe defaults" if possible, and remove any add-on devices. If using a DVD to install, try a CD drive only…
It can also mean the disk has some bad sectors, in places where it is trying to install Win2k. During the install, try to partition the drive with a small first partition (about 1GB), then install Win2k on the second partition (to bypass the first 500-900MB)
Johnathan:
You won't get it running unless you get the right drivers for your devices. It'll be next to impossible to get old drivers for new devices.

Install Linux on it instead and then run Windows 2000 in a VM if you want to .

?:
Most likely a failing hard drive.
Laurence I:
it probably has to do with the BIOS and ACHI drive interface support. you may need to alter the hard drive access mode. which may mean repartitioning/formatting or the drive may be too old.
