    Intel(R) PRO/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter wont start..


      Hi there,


      I'm almost start losing my hope...


      I have Windows 2008 Server where I do have the NIC on the subject. When I updated the ProSet 15.5 I reached the status where NIC says: "This Device Cannot start (Code 10)" on the Device Manager.


      I actually have had this case more than once, and it could happend on the other servers (W2008 still) as well.


      I have done:

      - the full uninstallation

      - removed real hidden NICs (http://blogs.technet.com/b/danstolts/archive/2010/09/25/how-to-find-a-lost-missing-hidden-or-removed-network-card-nic-or-other-device-and-even-remove-it.aspx)

      - rebooted

      - with one server I reoooted that about five times, and suddenly it brings up the NICs (on the another server).


      Is here anybody from the Intel to say how I can validate the card itself? As I have already requested our installation persons to replace the NICs, to get more credit, I need something real for them.


      Also, how I can troubleshooting the "Code 10", as it is very general.


      And don't say try the latest drivers (I noticed there is new once available), because I have had this issue earlier, and if you are reading the Release notes, the are not error fixing included.


      best regards
