That's where I'm heading. I took the machine to a local "expert" to clone the drive and build a mirror machine. The next step was to build a VM off the mirror.
The guy corrupted my original drive and only managed to pull the data from the drive, not the OS or configuration. I was trying to be proactive......
I can rebuild most of the server on the old license files but in order to do that I have to fix the order. I tried to disable the onboard NIC and load the software but no dice. I thought that worked in the past but I'm old and forgetful.
In the registry (from one of the suggestions above) I found the bind order and it has the wireless NIC in the first position but the other location has it 3rd or 5th. Ipconfig/all also shows it last.
