WHS PP3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • PP3 installed no problem on my HP EX485 last night.

    Question #1.  Do I need to re-install WHS connector on my Win7 (64bit) PC.  I believe I installed the correct one when I bought the PC, and it is currently working just fine.

    Question #2.  Does PP3 address 64 bit Bare Metal Restore ?

    Thanks,

    Rich

    1. The connector will upgrade automatically.
    2. No. 64 bit drivers are still not supported for bare metal restore.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Adding to Ken's answer:
    Restoring a 64-bit OS of coarse *is* possible when supplying the correct drivers on USB-stick to the WHS restore disk.

  • Over the past 5 days I've been trying to 'Bare Metal' a 64-Bit Win7 Ultimate (not Bitlocked) to a Gateway FX4710 600G HD with Intel 82566DC 1G Net Card. It WAS working fine...I just screwed up with a FAST transfer and wanted to undo it and test WHS backup/restore.

    It failed when I ran it through my Cisco Gig router.

    It failed when I ran it direct through my SMB 100M Hub.

    Now I'm trying direct with a crossover cable...seems like similar results.

    They are 1) it cans out every 30-70 minutes with a 'can't find' something error - restart and it resumes from approx same place. 2) after 6-14 such restarts, it gets to 100% restored but "will complete in 24692 days 0 hrs 13 mins" and goes nowhere for several hours.

    I have tried a straight up restore, a reformat and restore, an unmount/remount/repartition/reformat and restore. All the same results.

    I would like some insight as to what else I might be overlooking or is this and undocumented feature that I was unaware of?
