Have you tried removing the device (NICs) in Device Manager; then run the
Add New Hardware wizard and reinstall the NIC(s) using drivers downloaded
from the manaufacturers web site (or from a recovery disk)?

Hi everyone, long time SBS user but this is the first post I've done on
I run an SBS 2003 server at home with a number of Non-Profit websites for
free for charities that couldn't otherwise afford webspace. I provide
with mail, remote webwork place etc.
Here's my problem.
I've got workmen at my house converting my garage into an office.
They were messing with the electrics and powered up/down about 14-15 times
throughout the course of the day. By the end my UPS had no more juice
and my SBS server went down hard a number of time.
After one of the times it didn't come back up. It gave a boot error and I
went into recovery console and performed a FIXBOOT. The server then
However here were the following behaviours of the server:
1) I only had external connectivity
2) The internal (LAN) side card showed in the dev mgr but gave a Code 31
3) The only thing that showed in either card's properties was the Windows
Client. Each time I tried to add tcp/ip the error msg given was "Cannot
I contacted MS Support who brilliantly called my back the next day - the
bummer is that I was out of the office the whole week this week and wasn't
able to contact them back. I did via email ask if an "In-Place upgrade"
would sort my issue. The MS engineer responded with a 'most likely' so
Friday night after doing a full backup using NTbackup I did that.
Now my server's behaviour is much worse:
1) I have no connectivity at all
2) The NICs all give a Code 1 in the Dev Mgr and won't uninstall giving an
error msg of "This device is required for boot"
3) Each time I reboot I get a "New hardware found" and then the cards
install giving a "file not found"
4) A full restore with file over write did NOT get me back to the previous
behaviour. I'm now stuck.
I'd really like some help getting this back without having to rebuild the
server. I've got screenshots of all the above mentioned if this will help.
Here's some actions I've performed:
1) Added devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices 1 into the environment to see if
nic cards had hidden devs that were preventing them from being uninstalled
2) Manually uninstalled the devices via the registry and system32\drivers
(they reappeared and gave the above error msg!)
3) Backed up my system state, my exchange, my www and iis config.
Can someone please help me!
