    CC3 - Adding Wireless Drivers to Laptop Rebuild

    Hi,

    Today I took a Dell laptop off of a teacher and made good process in building it from a CC3 build Disk. Everything went fine.

    The only thing missing from the build, was the wireless drivers!!!

    How do I go about putting the wireless drivers into the unattended install process for these laptops?

    Do I have to add the driver at the Server under the RM Build Manager or can I do this from a workstation?

    Thanks

    Use the RM Workstation Build disk manager program, and go to the custom drivers section. All you will need is the inf and cat files for the driver, and add it into the Network Card section.

    Hi,

    Many thanks

    Do I do this on the server. Also where do I store the drivers, or does the RM package copy them to a specifc location?

    You can do it from wherever you have access to the build disk manager - the program will just copy the driver files into the build area driver repository on the server.

    We've only had to do this once for new Tecra M7 notebooks, but the procedure worked for WLAN, Sound and VGA.

    Hi,

    I am sure I tried that today, but pointed to the drives I had on the desktop!!!

    Do I need to make a new build disk once I have added drivers?

    The Rm software did not make a error message whwen done!!

    Shall I try it again

    Erm, I think you will just need to rebuild the machine, as they are the XP drivers that you're adding, and nothing to do with the initial stages of the RM build process.

    Build disks only contain the DOS drivers for network cards.

    Yes it's very helpful in that it doesn't confirm successful addition of drivers :P Yeah, just give it a go

    You can check the drivers have been added by looking in D:\RMNetwork\RMManage\RMRebuild\XPBuild\CUDRV\NET.
