Hi all,

I inplace upgraded our Ghost server from Windows server 2003 to Windows server 2008, it went smoothly BUT then the below issue started.

Once using the server after the upgrade the Ethernet Controller and Base System Devices drivers are missing.

The VM is hosted within our VSphere environment.
