  • Uhh, no need for anything so complex, I think, Pål... If it's not an HP MediaSmart, you hook up a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. If it is, you hook up a USB keyboard, and type a couple of things extremely carefully...

  • You might be better off using the devcon.exe utility (assuming you can find a way to get it on to the machine). USB key should work, though you may need to guess at the drive letter a few times...

    Using issuing the following command should re-enable the NIC

    devcon.exe enable "PCI\VEN_1039&DEV_0191"
