hi,
We are using Dell computers in our company. We have a P-I machine with 3Com network card running on Windows NT Worstation. I shifted the "Harddisk AND Network card" to another P-II Dell machine. When I start this system , the Network card is not detected and I am not able to Login to the Domain and the system deosnt get the IP address from the DHCP Server. I get the following error in the Event Viewer:
"EI90x: Could Not Find Adapter"

I want to know what are the issues that prevent a Network card from being detected. This happens even if use another Network card.

I need help real BAD.

Thanks in advance

I would look for a conflict. My guess is that the bios may have set-
tings that the network card and the other HDD are set to and the bios always wins. Say for instance the card on the PI is set to IRQ 10, 300f and on the PII the sound card built in on the Motherboard is using IRQ 10 a220. My suggestion is to write down all of the ports and settings in the bios and compare them under NT Diagnostics\Resources.
