WHS (HP485) Restore can't find network driver, Please help.


Recommended Posts

I have been running WHS for backups for over 2 years without issues, but had never needed to do a restore until now.

Upon running the PC Restore disc, the server is not found.

The computer is a Dell XPS 435MT with an Intel 82567LF-2.

I have recovered the Windows Home Server Drivers for Restore and placed them on a USB stick which upon the restore process allows me to add the storage drivers, but no network driver si shown.  I then took the Dell driver disk that can with the PC and loaded the Intel network driver to the USB stick, but still no network driver is shown when I try to add drivers during the restore. 

How can I get the Intel network driver to load?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Yup, and it has to be a vista compatible driver, as that's what the restore image is using (well, the Vista version of "Windows PE")


Which is why I recommended the XFiles Edition. A lot of drivers integrated into the image.



Also, what LAN chipset is the computer using?

I'm pretty sure I've used the Win7 32bit driver.

It probably was the same driver for both OS's, or had the info and files for both.
