How to integrate SATA Drivers and install Windows 2000 SP4?

In the laptop in my specs (Sony VAIO VGN-FZ430E), I'd like to install Windows 2000 SP4 from my ISO I made straight from install disc. I know I won't be able to do much with it, it's just a testing and for fun thing. I tried booting from my disc and a USB with the ISO, but I was told no hard drives were found. So, can anyone help me finding the SATA drivers for this laptop and integrate with nLite? TIA.

That laptop only supports Vista or Windows 7, both of which have sata drivers included.

If you want to play with Windows 2000, then try running it in VirtualBox.

May i ask why you want to use an OS that's over a decade old?

I just wanted to do it as a fun thing, with it's own physical install.

Although, I'm pretty ecstatic right now. I found a folder called flpy86.zip or something similar, and integrated it using nLite to my ISO. Burned to DVD, and setup detected my HDD. Didn't have a chance to install, I'll install later and update with results.

For what I use my PC for, nothing really. The only noticeable difference is no Windows Media Center, but I never used that anyway.
