I have just finished loading our 'cloned image' onto one of our old PC's... same hardware as ive been imaging too for some time...

This time however; the computer cant see any network hardware on board, although it should be integrated into the motherboard (RJ45 connector)... is a VIA EPIA-M running embedded-XP SP2...

Any ideas why this happened and how can i get the computer to see the hardware?
I have already been to VIA webpage and downloaded updates and drivers and everything i could think of...

I have managed to get it to recognize that there is a card (was missing IEEE 1394 drivers- copied them from another machine)
however... In device Manager under network adapters, it reads the card as 1394 Network Adapter and not as an NIC...

Still cant get it to connect to Internet or LAN...

OK... just in case anyone cares (which i highly doubt)

onboard LAN was disabled in BIOS... don't know why.. I thought when i was loading the image it included the new BIOS??!!?

never had this problem before... good thing to know i suppose

Loading a software image (Ghost, Acronis etc) does not copy the BIOS as this is "external" to the imaging software.
So even though you may have 20x systems all the same hardware and run a Ghost image onto all of them, it dosent mean the BIOS is set the same on each.

It is frustrating when small things like that occur, but its somehting to remember to check Laughing
