I am running Windows Server 2008 64 bit on an HP DL360 G4. HP has the correct drivers on the site.

The driver version is dated 12/28/08. I tdownloaded the latest drivers (using the NICs in question. I install the newest version.

Windows still says their version date is 12/28/08. I tried installing it using the EXE utility, and using the INI files through device manager. Still no go.


So I get the bright idea to uninstall the drivers, thinking that I could reinstall them - and all would be happy. I was wrong. I couldnt install any version of the driver to get the nics to work. (including the originals, that worked) It says the device is not configured correctly.

This happend on all of the servers I tried it on.
I reimaged one, several times - run into the same problem each time. I even tried installing it direct, from a freshly burned 2008 DVD- I still had the issue.

The DVD I was using must of had something physically wrog with it. When I burned another one with the same ISO, install went flawless.
