    'Ethernet does not have a valid IP configuration'


    Hi,

    I downloaded and installed Windows8 RP a few days ago in one of my friends PC. (Intel i3 processor with 6 GB RAM). It installed without any problem but when I setup up internet connection (wired broadband) it crashed and restarted showing some error which couldnt be read. When i tried to diognosis the problem it shows 'Ethernet does not have a valid IP configuration' message!
    What should I do now? Plz help. Thanks in advance.

    I am seeing the same issue,
    I have a Intel PCI NIC and asus Z77 motherboard with onboard NIC, both are the seeing the same issue for last couple of days, I tried disabling/enabling NIC(s), updating drivers and hard reboot of my switch and router and cable modem, but no luck so far.

    Reinstalled windows last night and it fixed the problem. I tried system restore and sfc /scannow before re-install, but had no luck.

    For sure seems like a bug in windows.
