Problem Installing windows 2003 server with network adapter, internet and display
Posted on 2006-04-13
I bought a refurbished Dell latitude with home XP with 1 gig and 80 meg to use as a windows business server. I got it working under Home XP and networked. I replaced the harddrive with a new out of the box unit and started to install the windows small business server 2003 evaluation edition, which includes service pack 1. Set up two partions of 55 and 15 meg.
Restarted the machine and got two errors.
"Setup has detected the following requirements have not been met"
- "Display resolution should be at least 800X600"
- "A network adapter must be installed, enabled, and configured with TCP/IP"
I get no connection to the internet also.
Well, I put a new Belkin Network adapter in and no luck ( Also no driver for unit on the Belkin DIsk)
SO - How come I am not able to set this up? I hoped that with a refurbished and recent Dell unit would be 100% compliant.
How do I enable the network adapter and set the display resolution and connect to internet?
