I've installed the core but it does not recognise any of the installed NICs, I am using a Compaq NC3122 and also a 3com 3c905c-TX.
Does anyone know of a good source for NIC drivers for a core install ?
To add hardware to a server running a Server Core installation 1. Follow the instructions provided by the hardware vendor for installing new hardware:
• If the driver for the hardware is included in Windows Server "Longhorn" Beta 3, Plug and Play will start and install the driver. • If the driver for the hardware is not included, proceed with the steps 2 and 3. 2. Copy the driver files to a temporary folder on the server running a Server Core installation. 3. At a command prompt, open the folder where the driver files are located, and then execute the following command:
Pnputil -i -a <driverinf>
