    just put xp pro and server 2003 a drive on separate partitions, xp pro is on C: server on E:, xp pro works fine, server does not want to use the onboard LAN. i have installed the driver but no joy. even manually installing the network doesn't work. any one have any idea's?. 8 days left to activate server!

    what nic do you have in your system? plus what does it say under device manager... plus have you installed a SP link here?

    in the end i formatted the drive and re-installed server only. still no nic detected, its an on-board type. looks like server is not compatible with the mobo. i have a pci nic so I'll try that and see if it see's it then.

    Silly question - you *did* install the chipset drivers from the motherboard CD?

    I hate stating the painfully obvious... but it could be a dead NIC...

    Please allow me to state the painfully obvious again... I need to read more carefully. :p

    yep installed the drivers, xp picked up the nic straight away, but server doesn't seem to see it. tomorrow i'll stick a pci nic in it and hopefully that will work.

    I've come across this before when dual-booting - one thing I did which worked was unbind TCP/IP from the NIC in Server and re-bind it. That worked once (though Christ alone knows why)
