Intel ET2 Quad Port Card Issues Rebooting Server Over and Over
Posted on 2013-05-14
I have a StorageFlex SAN Server with Microsoft 2008 Storage Server installed with 4GB of RAM and Dual Processors. The Model # on the MB is Intel S5500BC.
The issue I am having is I had to do a full restore from a back up because of the internal hard drives crashing. I have two Intel ET2 Quad Port NIC cards for the server, one came with the server and one I installed after the server went down. Regardless of which one is installed, once I installed the drivers for the NIC card the server blue screens and reboots and once it blue screens it goes into "Loading Windows" and then right before it gets to the login screen it just reboots (no BSOD, nothing) and does that over and over and over again. The only way to get it to stop is taking out the Network Card/s and then the server boots up fine. I have uninstalled the drivers (via Add/Remove Programs) and downloaded some older drivers from Intel's website but the same issue comes up every single time.
I am lost as what I am supposed to do next, could some help me?
