Hotfix for a Server 2003 RIS Server

In knowledge base article KB823658 it makes reference to a hotfix for 32 bit
machines; but it doesn't give me the opportunity to download it.

I get the following error when trying to bring down a RIS image: "The
operating system image you selected does not contain the necessary drivers
for your network adapter. Try selecting a different operating system image.
If the problem persists, contact your administrator. Setup cannot continue.
Press any key to exit. "

The PC connecting to the RIS server sees it just fine, I can select the
image I want and it even starts to act like it's going to work; but then I
get the above mentioned error message.

If anyone can help I'd greatly apprecaite it.

Carey,

Thanks; but I've done that and it still doesn't work.

Hi Richard,

This may be because the network card is not supported natively by Windows XP.
In order to add the drivers to you RIS server installation see the following
KB article:

Q315279: How to add a third-party OEM network adapter to a RIS installation

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=315279

This has solved my problems with RIS support for Broadcom 57xx nics.

/Cheers
