That is weird, I recommend running SFC /SCANNOW on an elevated Command Prompt.

You should not disable the cards in the BIOS - this will almost always cause an activation request.
disable them in Device Manager instead.

Disabling in Device Manager certainly shouldn't cause the problem - unless you also uninstall the driver.

One way around it - so long as you never use the two NIC's together - may be to force the 'odd one' to use the same MAC address as the one that works. Certainly this solved a similar problem in Win7 in one case I know of.
