  • I ran into the same answer, and was miffed that snow_ninja67 never gave any hints as to how to solve the problem.  Since I just figured this out, and it was simple, I thought I should share.  The trick is, don't let Windows Home Server try to "deduce" which version of the driver it should install.  Since the driver CD has a bunch, but none specifically for Windows Home, it appears that Windows Home tried to "pick", and sadly, he chose poorly.

    Instead, browse all the way down the folder tree until you are pointing at the one you want.  In my case, the Windows 7, 64bit driver worked like a charm.

    Good Luck!

  • Oh sorry that i didnt what i did i simply went and manually installed the driver (in my case i had to first of all browse to the driver folder in my case C:\Users\Admin\Downloads\Broadcom_Lan(v16.2.4.1).zip\Broadcom_LAN(v16.2.4.1)\WinXP\x64 this wasnt the actual driver jsut an example then it may be the .sys to the .inf file i had to try several times for it to work)
