If I can recall correctly, I was able to get win2k to install with both yellow and the purple ports, but they both had to be set up in IDE mode in the bios. I just couldn't get AHCI to work, which I absolutely needed. I had read about the PC Perspective method of installing AHCI after windows XP was installed in IDE mode, but I had not found anyone being able to do it with win2K. Also I believe ICH10R supports winxp so I just scrubbed the idea of using win2K, and installed Winxp Pro as I needed AHCI running on my computer ASAP.
My only suggestion to the OP is to try the method that KayossZero's link suggests if you want to attempt to get Raid to work with the older OS. If I can find a spare SATA HD lying around, I may try it again just for the hell of it.
