I bought a new gigabit network card, drivers made the machine crash, so Im doing a repair install of windows XP.  I had to boot into safe mode and disable the network card through device manager in order for the machine to be able to boot into windows okay (prior to repair).

 

Im in the process of a repair install right now, and wondered if anyone knew if my disabled hardware item (in this case a network card) would get re-enabled during the repair operation?

 

Cheers

If system restore was enabled you should be able to go back to before the driver was installed rather than do a repair install.

I did the repair in the hope it would fix some other windows files that may be causing a conflict or something with the new network card drivers. Didnt work.
