So we’re not going to be getting on the network with that box…

So I’m rebuilding an OEM machine… and feeding it the drivers because the OS does not see the NIC card from the Dell site …  and I realize that not only can’t this machine not see the nic cards.. the C: drive isn’t a C: drive.


Now THAT is annoying, isn’t it?  That whenever there’s a zip drive it picks that up as a C: drive instead of the read drive.. so now my C.. is my E… arrrrggghhh.. I’ll have to fix that.. as the Dell drivers keep trying to install to a C drive that isn’t there.  Normally I unplug the zip but I forgot to do that this time….


hmmm won’t even load up the nic drivers…okay back to the Dell website to see what other drivers are available.

    Susan I have the same issues with the Dell Drac card. I found that by partitioning the drive with SBS disk 1 and then rebooting before you install the OS the bios will reallocate the hard disk partitions at the begining.

    hope that helps…

    This drives me crazy too. I blogged about it just the other day.
