RIS, LAN drivers failing to load.

We are attempting to add RIS to cut down deployment prep. We had created base
images for Toshiba Tecra A5 laptops. I get the following error:
The operating system you selected does not contain the neccesary drivers for
your network adapter. Try selecting a different image...

I tried using a troubleshooting article on uploading NIC drivers to RIS
images but it never seemed to work.

Any suggestions or posible solutions?

I use http://unattended.sourceforge.net/ (or an older and different forked -
custom - version of) in combination with imaging (ghost, trueimage, etc..)
and http://unattended.msfn.org/ and Active Directories to distribute and
keep updated thousands of workstations spread over a large geographical
area.. You may be able to use those methods to better suite your needs than
RIS.

Caleb,

Been down this road myself and it took me a good while of sorting through
links that I found that "resolved" this issue and finally found my (working)
answer...but wont make you suffer through all the BS I did and just tell you
what I've found:

Make sure you have copied the .cab, .sys,. inf and any other .DLL that
represents the NICs you are using into the
..\RemoteInstall\Setup\Images\English\[OS]\I386 folder and that should get you
through the initial start of the RIS. After that step, it will be up to your
..SIF file(s) and txtsetup.SIF in the I386 folder as well.

Hope this works for you,

-Bill

Appologies, it should read .CAT instead of .CAB

Got passed the driver message, but now I have another problem on my hands.
After the hardware diagnostics, it will load several files but then flashes
this error:

File iastor.sys caused an unexpected error (21) at line 3540 in
d:\xpsprtm\base\boot\setup\setup.c.

Press any key to continue

Any posible reasons for this?

Never mind I fixed that problem by clearing iastor in the txtsetup file.

Glad it worked out for you. It sounds like you had the same issues I had with
the whole shebang ... once I got passed the drivers issue I went through the
iastor.* deal.

Good luck.

I'm seem to having a similar problem now. This time it is with an HP Compaq
DX 2000 MT. I did the following below but to no avail. One observation though
is that the drivers on the CD or online didn't have all the needed files, yet
they installed just fine when we built the image.
Any suggestions?

Did you try this? http://support.intel.com/support/network/sb/cs-000023.htm
The popular Intel Pro 100/1000 drivers are different when used with RIS.
Following this setup resolved the issue for me.
