  8. Ok after I finally get it to boot ( and working ),but my network does not work ? Now when I go to do the internet setup it list the network card and seemes like it is good . When I try to configure the card - I am asked for dhcp ( which I am ) and my dhcp client ID? I have never had to enter a client ID before - any ideas how I can find out that id ?
  9. fyi - switching to a sata hard drive fixed my issue. Now I just need to get the nic card to work ( almost there ). Anyone have anyideas on the nic?
