Hey Sonu,

Check out these KB articles:

How to Add Third-Party OEM Network Adapters to RIS Installations
http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?id=246184

Error message when you deploy a RIPrep copy of a Windows XP image or of a
Windows 2000 image from a RIS server
http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?id=835264


You'll want to confirm that you have the latest drivers from either Compaq
or Broadcom in both the CD-based image AND the RiPrep image.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for your help. But both articles did not help me because they do not
apply to riprep image. I red somewhere there is a hot fix for this but cudn't
find it.can you suggest something for riprep image. .SIF file created in
riprep is named riprep.sif is that right?...plus in that image in i386 folder
there are no inf files while in cd based image there are. can you clear me on
that.
Thanks.

Hi Sonu,

Did you try the steps for KB246184 (
http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?id=246184 )?

Can you post the exact error you are seeing when the process fails.

We need to confirm that the same ( & latest ) NIC drivers are on both
images.

Is this problem solved yet? I have a similar problem with the HP dx2000.

I created a RIS installation (full install). After that created an image
with riprep.exe

However I am not able to put the image back due to incompatible NIC-drivers.

Greetings

Tijs
