RIS Deployment with Intel Pro/100 VE Cards

Hello,
I have been trying unsuccessfuly to create and RIS deployment using this
NIC.

The error is during the text phase stating that setup cannot continue
because it doesnt have the correct drivers.
Facts:
I have created a risetup image of XP with SP1 from CD
I have altered the ristndrd.sif file in the templates directory to point to
oempnpdrivers = \drivers\nic
I have downloaded the current drivers from intel for the card and deposited
them in the I386 and $oem$\$1\Drivers\NIC directories
The RIS Server is 2003 Standard with SP1
I have deleted the net557.inf and .pnf files
I have a bottle of whisky under the desk that is looking more and more
tempting every hour

Please can someone help?


Many thanks,
John

John,

What drivers are you using. I have the same nic and have no problems
with the dos drivers altho i do use ghost not ris - drivers should be
the same i would have thought.

Hello,
I'm not actually using the DOS drivers for this. As far as I can tell in
the documentation, I just use the XP drivers in the i386 and $oem$\$1
directories.

Is there a dummies guide for adding network card drivers for RIS
installation (specifically with this card would be good ;-) )

Many thanks,
John

I have the same problem as you John. I even followed the documentation from
Intel's website about using the latest 10.1 pro2kxp drivers and nothing is
working. I'm more concerned about the fact that I had this working prior to
reinstalling the server.

It's a strange one, isn't it?!
I'm following up several avenues myself at the moment. I've made it more of
a long-term problem now (in the hopes that the machines will be changed
before they need reinstalling!). If I find anything useful I'll post it
here.
