Restore neither detects the wired LAN nework addapter nor the wireless adapter on my Acer 8930G RRS feed

  • Question

  • Restore neither detects the wired LAN nework addapter nor the wireless adapter on my Acer 8930G.  What do I do.

    I copied the drivers onto a USB stick and it says it finds my drivers, and since it did not detect my LAN card it does not install the drivers.

  • Did you use 64-bit drivers?

    I'm curious as to why you'd ask this question as there is no requirement to
    use either 32-bit or 64-bit drivers during the restore process. The choice
    as to whether one uses a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows PE environment for the
    restore process is made when booting from the recovery media and that's
    what determines whether or not one needs to use 32-bit or 64-bit drivers.
    Additionally, there is no correlation between the architecture used for the
    restore process and the architecture of the OS being restored as long as
    the matching drivers are used. One can just as easily use the 32-bit
    Windows PE restore process to restore a backup of a 64-bit OS or the 64-bit
    Windows PE restore process to restore a backup of a 32-bit OS.

    I agree with you but as there was little information in the first posting I thought I would try to work through a process by asking a question! It could have been "Did you use 32-bit drivers?". Your post provides much more clarification of the process and may get the poster to think about what he actually did. Failing that, do you have any other suggestions for him?
