Re: [WHS] Can not get a WIN 8 client PC to restore on WHS Ver.1
Also have the 32 bit driver for the NIC on the flash drive with the other drivers . That "restore client " disk and that flash drive works on another 64 bit HP computer on the same network. I had also used those same two devices (restore disk and flash drive) previously on the "problem computer" when it had WIN 7 64 bit loaded on it. Thanks for the response.
Was not able to get the "PC Client Restore" mode to work but did manage to download an ISO and re-image the laptop to WIN 7. When I re-imaged the laptop WHS listed it as a "new PC client" . That gave me the ability to restore folders from the prior "PC client " to the current.
This salvaged a lot of work on programs like "Google Picasa" where I had catalogged / facial recognition on ~~ 35,000 images.
Finally was able to resolve this problem . Can now "restore" all three PC's. Problem apparently was that changes/updates in Windows 7 had caused incompatibility between WHS "PC Restore CD" and Realtek Network Driver in PC's. Couldn't find a workable driver from HP or Realtek. Finally found one (32 bit and 64 bit combination) through a Lenovo site that worked.
