If it's not an onboard device...
Check to see what PCI cards you have in your system and then see which one hasn't been installed into the OS properly.

If you have a SB Live installed, the drivers provided in Win2k as well as the manufacturer's drivers don't make all parts of it run. I have the same issue, only I know that it is some component of my SB Live....

I found a similar problem installing Win2K fresh, I then installed the Via 4n1 drivers (I have a Via chipset based MB) and the unknown PCI device was the Via Power Management Controller.

Try installing the chipset drivers for your motherboard.

Let us all know how you get on.
