Windows 2000 Video output on serial port

Hi,

I'm trying to install Windows 2000 on a Nokia IP330. A Nokia IP330 is a "pc" running IPSO, a BSD-like OS made by nokia. The "pc" hasn't got a video card, so the video output (should be text only I think) should be redirected to the serial port. Is that possible ?

The installation shouldn't be a problem, I can simply remove the harddrive and install it on my desktop. Then I can install win2k on it. I thuought that Terminal services was enough, but I think that I need to install some extra drivers after I've placed the hdd back into the Nokia and booted it.

The short answer is no...   Windows 2000 will not install/boot without a video card.

http://www.nokia.com/pc_files_wb2/SEC_Nokia_IP330_DatasheetNA.pdf is a short overview. Not really hardware specific, but on runs on a K6-2/266. The hardware platform is Nokia IPRG.

There are no pci slots on the board, but there is an Intel chip with the text Intel PCIboard on it.

In Linux, you can easily use serial port for output. Because my Linux knowledge is not so good, I'd rather run Win2K on it.

I'm with graye, unless there is someone that can change the code then its not possible to do this.  You either need onboard, pci, agp or possibly isa card for windows.
