Hi Experts,

I'm in dispair to activate Wireless Lan Adapter in my Lenovo Notebook X301 Windows 2008 R2 ServerCore installation.

To install intel WLAN driver is no Problem but I can't activate Wireless Lan Service in Windows 2008 R2 itself.

The 'normal' Intel E100x NIC was correctly installed while Winodws Setup. There is no way to activate Wireless Lan Service on a Windows 2008 R2 Core Server?

Purpose of this installation is a windows 2008 R2 hyper-v installation with vhd files of my broken ^and backuped^ other laptop. So if Windows Core doesn't see or activate the Feature Wireless Lan Service, the hyper-v virtual machines can't access too?
