    Hi all,

    Upon boot up, I have noticed that this Win7 loads up all the network samba mapped drives before it loads the network card. Then, Win7 complains that it could not connect to the network drives.

    How can I fix this, so that the net card loads before the drives.

    I can fix this when I install a new linux workstation and it does that, but I don't know how to fix this in a Windows machine.

    Thanks

    I have the issue and just learned to live with it. Well my issue was being a laptop and the wireless wouldn't connect til after login (Intel software which I like).

    Not that I know of. Maybe try assigning a static IP, a possible delay in obtaining an IP MAY be the cause.

    I just re-imaged back to XP due to a few compatibility issues with my Blackberry and some older apps I use, still have Windows 7 on my desktop tho.
