Hi

I've been having some problems adding drivers to the text mode part of
the installation of Windows 2000 SP4 and Windows XP SP2, so that I can
install them from a RIS server.

My current setup:

- Server: Windows 2003 Standard with RIS
- Clients: Everything from laptops (mostly Dell and IBM) to
workstation (again, mostly IBM and Dell).
- Ethernet cards: Of the non supported cards its mostly Broadcom
b57 and similar and different Intel cards.

Things work well if the network card is supported by Windows.

Where do I need to put my network files?
Is it the same place for both Windows XP and 2000?

Best regards,
Egil Hansen.

Hi

In the ristndrd.sif, located in the I386\Templates
directory of your RIS image, under the following entry put
the path to the driver & .inf for the net card, if not
there create it.

OemPnPDriversPath = "PnPDrvs\NetCard

Then under the image location create the folder structure
(if not already there) $oem$\$1 7 create the directory
listed in the ristndrd.sif i.e.: PnPdrvs\NetCard.

This should work fine, if you need any more information
there are chapters on adding files & installing device
drivers in TechNet, every thing you need to know.

Hi

Im aware of OemPnPDriversPath, and use that already, but that one is as
far as I can see, only used during the GUI part of the installation
(since I already have my network card drivers added to OemPnPDriversPath).

Its for the DOS based installation I need to add drivers, so that the
DOS Setup is able to communicate with the RIS server and copy files ect.

Regards, Egil.

Do you get the error from the blue setup screen section of
the install?

If so the .inf, .cab & the .sys drivers need to be added
to the I386 directory of the RIS image, also you will need
to re-start the Remote Install service on the server.

Exactly what you need to do is drop the inf file for the driver of the nic
card ( preferably from the nic manufacturer) into the i386 dir, setup the
oemplug and play drivers path and delete any .pnf file in the cd based image
that you setup originally with sp2 for xp or sp4 for 2000. Then of course
restart the binl and tftp service. The .pnf files will be recreated with the
new inf setting and other stuff once you restart the service.
