I managed to add network drivers to my RIS installation,
and windows complets the installation, however when the
newly installed system comes up, the network drivers are
not loaded. Any ideas what went wrong?

for some reason, windows is not using any of the extra
pnp drivers from the $oem$\$1\drivers folder even though
they are all specified in the sif file. the nvidia
drivers are not being detected/used/copied to the new
system either

there must be some explaination.

Can you post your SIF file, minus product key, organization name and
passwords?

Also, where have you placed $oem$ in relation to i386?

Thanks

Oli

Hi Dave

That's the problem. For RIS and bootable CDs, the $oem$ folder has to go at
the same level at i386, not beneath it. Your answer file looks fine with
respect to OEM drivers.

Hope this helps

Oli

Yep! That did the trick... Now that i look at the
support sites, i understand my mistake... However, if i
use the NVIDIA drivers, the installation fails. at least
the network is working and i can get somewhere.

Thanks again!

You're welcome! I'm not sure about the Nvidia drivers.

Perhaps post again with full details of that one.

Cheers

Oli

About the $oem$ folder. there are some conflict in documentation. but i have
problem with riprep image. If i use flat image everything is ok, but when i
use riprep image:
1. oempnppath in *.sif is ignored (dont know why, but if i chechk registry
after instalation there is no record in place where it shcoud be)
2. $oem$ is also ignored (nothing is copied to destination computer) the
$oem$ sturcture i have is the same as in flat image.
