  • I don't understand the "appropriate format" problem.  EXACTLY what is the error message you see?

    Your situation is a bit confusing.  Server 2008 Foundation is supposed to be an OEM-only product, which means you should only be able to buy it on a system that has been pre-configured.  Did you install a new network card?  What network card is causing the trouble?  Where are you getting the network drivers you are trying to install?

    Server 2008 Foundation is 64-bit only.  Make sure you are installing 64-bit drivers.
