Re: Problem to install third and fourth NIC

Is the OS updated/patched?

Do you not see the NICs at all in Windows?

Do you see them in BIOS?

Do you get link on the ports?

Hi

Yes, all patch and update installed.

I see all NIC,s in "device manager" but two of them show "Ethernet Controller" and can not install driver HP NC 382i

Do you see them in BIOS?

I see in BIOS but two of them are "Disable Mac address"


Do you get link on the ports?

I do not get any link to these ports only get link to first and second port

I suspect this might be telling, but what's causing it I do not know..

In BIOS do you see any NIC settings? Something that might be related to this? Or maybe something during POST?

Have you tried a reset of the BIOS settings?
