+ 0 Votes WHY did you have to perform restore from MS Backup ?... OldER Mycroft 5 years ago What was the reason? Were your USB devices already missing before the backup? As regards the network, since the backup have you run the Network Wizard yet to re-identify the network components to the NEW installation? If you've "..installed sp2 & sp3.." then your Backup is as old as Service Pack 1. Did you install your system Drivers BEFORE SP2 & SP3 (which are only updates to existing drivers)?
