Networking PCs has always given me one problem or another over the years, but this is a new one

since win 10.


When I look at the network folder, I see all of the PCs on my network, and I can connect to any of their shares (XP, Win7, Win 8.1), but when I initially try to connect to the Server08R2 PC, it tells me that it can't be found. If I sit there and keep trying, it will eventually connect after a few minutes. It will also connect if I go to any other explorer window and type \\server in the address bar.


No other PCs on the network have this problem, and the "problem" pc will connect fine to the server if I change the hard drive and boot from a different OS. All things point to windows 10 having some sort of problem connecting to the server.


Wondering if anyone has a clue, since I am flummoxed. Thanks.
