Installing windows 2008 server and getting "cannot find the local network"

Hello,
  I am trying to install windows server and it keeps saying cannot find the network.  I take this exact same cable and plug it into my laptop and I can get out to the internet (dhcp).  The light on the lan card is green.  There is another lan port on the server but I am pretty sure this is primary.  Thanks

Have you lan adapter installed correctly? May be you don't installed proper drivers for it? Try to set IP manually. May be some service is not running or not installed.

Where does that cable connect to? If it is connected directly to a Cable modem or to a DSL modem, then it is possible that it won't issue a new IP to another device you connect it to. In such a situation you usually have to power cycle the modem.

Also, whether the card is primary or not on the server shouldn't matter.

als it did say the adapter was not installed so I had to download the drivers myself but I think I got the right ones and don't see anywhere to change it.


rindi it is connect to a belkin router and I tried cycling it.  

Thanks guys

I tried using the HP disk to install the OS and it would just freeze.  I had to use the Windows 2008 disk and install the drivers for the 2nd nic and use that for some reason.  Thanks guys.
