Question Having trouble trying to install Windows 2K on an old laptop, can anybody help or fix the problem?

Mar 17, 2019
So I got an HDD IDE adapter and connected this old laptop's hard drive to my windows 10 computer, and used rufus to install an ISO of windows 2000 on to it and I keep getting this error everytime it boots up, can anybody tell me what to do about this error if possible? here is a link to an image of the error and error at bottom of here View:

Couldn't Open the boot partition to check for a signature.
SETUPLDR: Couldn't open drive multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)

also want to clarify the HDD is perfectly healthy, i have tested it many times and there are no bad sectors on it and it runs smoothly, here is the laptop im trying this on this is kinda the only source with good enough info on the machine i could find.
