How to install Windows 2000 Server in x61

I got a new x61 model:7673-B93, and need to install Windows 2000 server in it,
but failed.
Can anyone tell me if I can do this?
 
Thanks

You need to install SATA-drivers in the Windows Server installation process (hit F6 to install additional drivers), which is a hassle.

Or you could enter BIOS (hit F1 during boot), and set the SATA-adapter to "Compatibility mode". I don't remember exactly where you configure this, but try Config -> SATA.

Thanks boblydan,
 
I'd tried the 2nd one to set the adapter to "Compatibility mode" but can't work.
I get blue screen with something like "Error in memory " while loading files in "Windows 2000 Setup".
 
For the 1st one, I can't find the said drivers even in Lenovo' web.
Nevertheless, either I do not press the F6 or press F6 and without loading the "said" driver,
"INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE" comes out.
 
I've tried installing Win Server 2003, the system prompting it can't find any drive.

SATA must be set to compatibility mode before any version of 2003 will see a SATA HDD, including 2003 R2 x86/x64 SP1/SP2.   i've installed 2003 EE x86 R2 SP1 on my X61 before and can confirm that 2003 can see the drive in compatibility mode.
