    In Win2008, anyone use Windows Server Backup? I used it (Win 2008 EE running in VMWare) to backup to a network folder. I am testing the restore process by booting from the DVD, selecting repair options, then specifying a network folder to restore from. The problem seems to be that the DVD environment doesnt recognize the VMWare network adapter at all ... ipconfig shows no adapters! Anyone have a work around? I tried to do a
    x:\windows\system32\wpeutil initializenetwork
    but that doesnt install the VMWare network adapter. Guess I have to incorporate the driver into the DVD somehow? I do have a working WinPE LiteTouch boot DVD that includes the VMWare NIC and SVGA drivers ... I wonder if the Server restore stuff could be put onto it instead ... but maybe I am just thinking backwards.
