Are the network adapters drivers included with windows?

What Make/Model are they?

If they are installed, they should appear in the registry under the following key:-
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

each key under this starting 0000 is a networking component. Always worth a look there first with Core or Hyper-V Server if you have NIC issues to see if the cards are present.

Our fix was to re-install the drivers again. So weird that it happens thou, the NIC's just dont get found even after several reboots.

Download the NIC drivers again, run the command pnputil -i -a "*.inf" (Where the INF is the INF of the drivers) and it will place them into the Driver Store on the server. Make sure the NIC's install correclty and that should or at least fixed out problem.

We haven't had a problem again after place the drivers in the store.

Hope that helps.

I wonder if the virtual switch configuration got messed up. There is a command to reset all of the virtual networking configuration. Will need to google it.
