Problem with Windows 2000 installation

Discussion in 'Microsoft Windows 2000 Setup' started by Frank Evangelo, Jul 30, 2003.

  1. I would try downloading the latest drivers for the NIC and
    using them during the install process instead of the ones
    on the W2K CD. There is a point during the install where
    you can specify additional drivers.
