I think your looking for the SBS console.  it contains many of the wizards, etc that allow you to finish the setup of your environment.  

If you coming from sbs 2k3 that explains it, as I remember it doing several reboots, and always re-running setup.  2k8 is not like this.  
ConchCrawlCommented:
My question is did you complete the SBS portion of the installation after the reboot or cancel it? In other words did it go through installing exchange and sharepoint and the like?
Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Also during the installation it should've asked you for the drivers for the network card?
You may have to rerun the installation with the NIC drivers available, usb, floppy, cd during the intial install. SBS 2008 must have a nic card to do the installation.

I tried but it did not work. I contacted HP to get the driver, any way it's a long story.

so right now no way to continue setup.
ConchCrawlCommented:
Bottom line either SBS will need to detect the driver or you will need to provide it. Don't see this often anymore, but it does happen. Sorry for your troubles, but I've been there :-).
mob_dreamAuthor Commented:
I already installed the driver for the NIC. Is it possible to continue setup that's all I need.
ConchCrawlCommented:
Then you would need to answer my prior question did it finish the installation of exchange and other sbs apps?
>>I tried but it did not work
I'm then confused about this comment?
mob_dreamAuthor Commented:
no it did not
ConchCrawlCommented:
Did you try and reinstall SBS and did it ask you for the nic drivers?

not I did not try to reinstall.
ConchCrawlCommented:
Then if you have the correct nic drivers, the put them on usb, floppy, or cd and reinstall. If the installation can't detect the drivers then during the installation it will ask for them.
