Can't install Netelligent PCI Adapter

During setup, NT hardware discovery incorrectly detected the NIC as an Intel 82557-based 10/100 Ethernet PCI adapter. Should have been a Compaq Netelligent PCI adapter. I know we should not have allowed NT to auto-discover, but too late for us. How do I correct this? There is no adapter in the network control panel and attempts to install the adapter using the softpaq SP6467 results in "no adapters detected". I hesitate to use system erase because of the problems with that posted here. Any workarounds or other solutions to get the adapter properly installed?

Re: Can't install Netelligent PCI Adapter

You'll need to remove the (software) existing adapter before the real adapter can be found. if that's problematic, at this stage, I'd use system erase and start over if you had just started the install.
