|It is almost a certainty that there will be no Windows 2000 driver for a Wifi Adapter that was fitted in a computer produced in the Windows 8 era.|
Have you any reason to suppose that you will get any of the other necessary drivers? I reckon you will have one heck of a job on your hands to make Win 2000 understand the hardware you are trying to install it on. It won't understand what appears to be massive RAM and what it would make of SATA disks is anyone's guess.
I trust you realise that your security on Win 2000 is way below par for the current internet. This means your likelihood of getting viruses and all sorts of other scams is very high indeed.
If you really must do this consider running Win 2000 inside a virtual machine. Then you could at least use Win 8 for the internet.
I see I overlapped.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
