    Install the Windows Vista/7 drivers. x86/x64 as required, of course.

    Windows 7 drivers do not function on Windows Server 2008, if I am not mistaken they are a different kernel.

    Hmm, R2 is pretty much Win7 level isn't it? Maybe try XP drivers, or use compatibility mode.

    It is the equivelant in server form but I think the drivers may be different. I dont really know. I have to do some research. Write this issue on http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us
