    Yeah I've just downloaded the latest update pack and started the integration using the nLite. So it works well then?

    How often does he release the update packs?

    Tread carefully I have just read as I havent checked recently that there is an issue with Symantec Antivirus. If you do use that then you may be better of using one of his older packs or not at all. See how you fare first.

    We use sophos here but thanks for the warning. Will still tread carefully though as it is still AV software.

    I have tried to burn the xp to make a bootable disc (just in case i ned it elsewhere) but am experiencing problems. Before i slipstreamed the hotfixes i burned them OK. Have you experienced any problems burning a bootable disc.

    I've used the eldergeek and msfn guide but still failed.

    Just did my third and now bootable.

    Not had much trouble doing a simple slipsteamed bootable disc. You may want to play around with the build options for the disc.

    Re: Remote Installation Services (RIS)

    OK next problem.

    When using the disc to copy the files for the base image on the RIS server it is throwing up an error saying "the system cannot find the path specified to D:\i386\svcpack\*".

    Any ideas?

    I've searched google on the error but brought up nothing.

    Re: Remote Installation Services (RIS)

    Hi,

    I've recently tried installing and setting up RIS. I finally managed to get it to boot from the network into the OSChooser, but after i've been through the little bit of configuration there and confirmed it hangs on the message "setup is inspecting hardware configuration".

    Also even if i pre-stage the machine it doesn't have the correct details in when i'm in chooser, it just uses the default setting in AD to set the computer name?

    Anyone had this before?

    Thanks

    Re: Remote Installation Services (RIS)

    It look like drivers required for you images are not present in the 'root' image. This is quite common in NIC drivers and there are qyite a few sites with detail instructions on how to add these on the net. Can you please tell us the spec of machine which you are trying to RIS please? Include LAN cards and motherboard chipsets if you can.

    Re: Remote Installation Services (RIS)

    Actually it's probably not the best idea to start with what i'm using. It's a Toshiba Satellite Pro M70 laptop. Chipset is "Intel 915GM Express" and the Network Card is an integrated "Realtek RTL 8139/810x.

    Reason i'm using a laptop is due to not having to space to work. As usual i'm working from my lap, good job i'm not soldering again, lol.

    Re: Remote Installation Services (RIS)

    I've had RIS working really well for some time now although one suite I was still ghosting because I could not get the nic's to work. Well I finally got the nics to work on boot today, but its not finding a these drivers

    Nvidia GeForce Mx4000
    Intel Pro 100VE (on the windows part of the install, it is ok on boot)
    Realtek AC97Audio


    I wondered off to msfn to find the answer but it seems to be down at the moment.

    I know I have to add the drivers I think to the i386 directory but can't remember for sure. Can anyone help?

    Well now I'm home I managed to access the site first time, but for all of you who use RIS you should take a look at this AutoImage looks like RougeSpear could be on to a winner, I for one will be trying this

    @edie209: You need to make a $oem$ directory and stick stuff in folders in there. Technet or Google should help you find the exact placement.

    Heres a good diagram to give you an idea of the folder structure.

    Any one got a copy of BTS Base Pack Version: 6.03.4. I'm trying to setup RIS using Risult and it doesn't work yet with the new interface for BTS (6.06.01)
