Ticket #1474 (closed defect: wontfix)
Windows 2000 host lacking
|Reported by:||Technologov||Owned by:|
Windows 2000 host support was removed from VirtualBox 1.6, which is quite unfortunate, because this system is still used in some enterprises. Just few months ago I had to work on Windows 2000 to run some virtualization app on it.

since Windows 2000 and XP internally are brothers (nearly identical), I believe, that supporting Windows 2000 shouldn't take much effort.
Revive this host support if possible, even if limited. (no bridging, VT, 64-bit, whatever, ...)
This is a real blocker issue for *some* users.
