Specs: Windows server 2008, 4 GB

Hi, Guys
Thank you so much for the posting! I would like to ask you a question regarding of dual boot windows 7 Ultimate edition and Server 2008 Enterprise edition(64 bit). I installed the window 7 on the C drive, then I installed server 2008 on second of partition from C drive which is not VHD. It totally bootable from both of OS. My window 7 is working very well including wire and wireless internet connection. However, When I log into server 2008 as administrator, it does not have network connection (No internet). and it said that my fast ethernet driver encounted problem with error code 10, So I updated the ethernet driver, and it turn out to be I have most updated driver. I even add roles for wireless Lan service, TCP/IP service, but still does not have any network connection. The ethernet network connection is perfectly fine when I was using the window 7. I really have no idea what caused not to have network connection in server 20008? Please help!! I appreciate in advance!

John

You can't have the driver up to date for the nic if you have a code 10 and a yellow mark.

I am not seeing 2008 support for that nic. You will need to buy and install one that is supported under 2008
