    Hi,

    I was trying to install Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition on my laptop but anything the process gets to the Network setup it skip but I do have NIC in my laptop. Therefore I could not configure my DNS, TCP/IP which blocking me from installing Active Directory for hands-on training.

    I need help from anyone out there.

    Thank you.

    Hi and welcome to CF. You might have network card in your laptop, but unless it is connected to *something* as far as I am aware dcpromo will fail. You need to make sure your nic has no issues in device manager and perhaps use a loopback adapter.

    You need to plug a patch cable into a hub or switch to allow the connection to be active before you can configure networking.

    this isn't necessary. the adapter needs to working correctly and either connected to a switch or loopback adapter.

    Edit; Just realised this is in the wrong forum!

    If it helps I just patch a server into a router (that has a IP address), give the server a suitable IP address and then run DC promo. 8)
