Cannot start DHCP client due to netbios over tcpip not starting
Posted on 2003-11-18
Having a problem starting the DHCP client on a windows XP home edition box, it will not start due to a dependent service not starting. Upon looking in the event viewer it is down to the netbios over tcpip service not being able to start due to the "specified driver being invalid".
Looking in Device Manager, I can see the Netbios over Tcpip, but it has an error in its properties stating that the device is not present or not all its drivers are installed, but looking at the driver details it shows netbt.sys in the drivers folder. Are there drivers missing or is there something I can do to get this service working properly.
Many Thanks for any assistance.
