When installing a core server like Hyper-V Server or a regular windows server 2008 core you may have the problem that not all drivers are installed.

I installed hyper-v server on a dell system and thee network drivers weren’t installed.

The options are …

– slipstream the drivers in the iso

– install drivers from an usb stick via cmd

– …

just type in cmd

rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 c:\”where your inf file is located”

check your driveletters if you use a cd or usb stick

If that didn’t work … no worries

I placed the driver files on my c dir

(adding files to a core server ???? … I took the HDD and placed it in an Sata quickport pro from Sharkoon)

run cmd as administrator

these were my broadcom drivers

pnputil -i -a c:\b57nd60a.inf

pnputil -i -a c:\k57nd60a.inf
