Hello,

Recently we were trying to get an image working with a new Dell
Optiplex GX280 for WinXP. After some fiddling, we finally got it to
work. I've seen a lot of other posts on the Broadcom gigabit NICs and
RIS, but we actually did a couple additional things to get it to work
for us.


1. We obtained the BCM57xx Windows XP drivers directly from Broadcom
(not Dell). Version 7.8.0.


2. We followed the usual steps to install the NIC drivers for RIS,
from Microsoft's article:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;246184


3. Applied the fix for RIS (found in the Driver FAQ on the Broadcom
website, but I included it here as well). This may or may not be
necessary:

80.) How do I install Windows 2000 and Windows XP using Remote
Installation Services?
Refer to Microsoft Article Q246184, "How to Add Third-Party OEM
Network Adapters to RIS Installations."
To deploy a Windows 2000 Image

Verify that the Windows 2000 RIS server has Service Pack 3 or later
installed
Follow the steps described in Microsoft Article Q246184
If the Windows 2000 RIS server does not have Service Pack 3 or later
installed, modify the b57w2k.inf file as described below. In the .inf
file that is to be placed in the
RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_Name\i386 folder, remove
NTx86.5.1 in two lines (see the following example):
Original Revised

[Manufacturer] [Manufacturer]
%BRCM% = Broadcom, NTx86.5.1 %BRCM% = Broadcom

[ControlFlags] [ControlFlags]
ExcludeFromSelect = * ExcludeFromSelect = *

[Broadcom.NTx86.5.1] [Broadcom]

Follow the steps in Microsoft Article Q246184, skipping step 1 as this
has been done above
To deploy a Windows XP Image

Modify the b57xp32.inf file
In the .inf file that is to be placed in the
RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_Name\i386 folder, remove
NTx86.5.1 in two lines (see the following example):
Original Revised

[Manufacturer] [Manufacturer]
%BRCM% = Broadcom, NTx86.5.1 %BRCM% = Broadcom

[ControlFlags] [ControlFlags]
ExcludeFromSelect = * ExcludeFromSelect = *

[Broadcom.NTx86.5.1] [Broadcom]

Follow the steps in Microsoft Article Q246184, skipping step 1, as
this has been done above


4. At this point on the client we were able to boot via PXE, but
before it started to copy files (in the text-based part), we got an
error pertaining to "b57w2k.sys" line 5700 something in
d:\xpsp1.....setup.c. So, we did a search and replace in the
b57win32.inf file for the NIC drivers; searched for "b57w2k.sys",
replaced with "b57xp32.sys". Updated the other copies of the
b57win32.inf file as well in the image folders.


This got it working for us. Just thought I'd share since there are
probably others out there that may be having having or will have this
same problem.

Thanks,

Where does the Broadcom 57xx and the Dell Optiplex come into this?

Riprep is an imaging technology, so just image the SP2 machine and you're
done.

Johan,
Must I have a certain Service Pack included with my base RIS CD image??
Right now I just have Windows 2K image on the server which I am trying to add
these drivers. I have followed these instructions on both a Dell GX260 and
IBM Thinkcentre without any luck...still trying...
