Hi all,

I am trying to make a BMR physical restoration on a DELL server.

I have previously made a restoration on a network share.

I now want to retrieve this image by booting on my server.

I have two problems :

1 = when I try to fix the ip address by using netsh it returns the following message : "unknown interface"
however, I am able to see it when I list the interfaces (netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces)
I tried to activate the IP pilot, it works but asks for rebooting, sure that it will not save the changes after that so no effect.

So i am unable to get the image by the network.

Anyway I have tried to get it by connecting a USB drive with the backup stored on it, respecting the folder .

It finds the backup on the disk by the same way it would have find it by through the network.

I go on the process and I notice that the box for partitionning the disks is automatically fielded so I can't access to this option.

I clic on next to proceed, the process begin and after a few seconds, an error message appears whic tells : "No disk can be found to restore the image"

And I can't access to the event viewer because I am in the winPe environment..

Anybody would help me ?

Hi

as nobody seems to be able to answer me...i have the answer to bring now :)

It is quite simple :

The only thing to is type this entry in a command prompt : "wpeinit"

It allows to load all the components, including network process, into the winpe environmemnt. Therefore, you are able to configure properly the network, by dhcp or statical with netsh.

that's all...
