WHS Restore can't find network driver, Please help. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been running WHS for backups for several years without issues, but had never needed to do a restore until now.
    The Windows Home Server is an HP EX485.
    The computer that I am trying to restore is a Dell XPS 435MT with an Intel 82567LF-2 network chip.
    Upon running the PC Restore disc, the server is not found (because no network driver is loaded).

    By doing a file restore, I have recovered the "Windows Home Server Drivers for Restore" and placed them on a USB stick which upon the restore process allows me to add the storage drivers, but no network driver is shown.  I then took the Dell driver disk that came with the PC and loaded the Intel network driver to the USB stick, but still no network driver is shown when I try to add drivers during the restore. 

    How can I get the Intel network driver to load?
    I need this to be able to do a complete system restore.

    Thanks for any suggestions.
