Intel Text Mode Drivers and RIS
Let me start by just saying AARRRRGGGHHHH *multiple expletive deleted*
I've been trying to fix this problem since friday morning and i'm not sure how long i'll have any hair left.
I just bought a room full of HP DC7800 machines with Intel 82566DM network adapters and I want to use my RIS setup to get them up an running, thats not too much to ask I'm sure.
I get the old chestnut back from RIS that my image doesn't contain the right drivers as per usual so I go through the whole $oem$\$1\Drivers\NIC thing and bunging drivers in left right and centre of that directory and i386, editing the .sif and whatnot. Same issue still.
On some forums they say about RIS not parsing some of the .inf files correctly so I download the specific RIS .infs from Intel, delete the required .PNFs and restart binlsvc. Still no joy
They also mention some manual editing of the Intel INFs because they're too large, so i've done all of that too and it's still moaning.
Does anyone PLEASE have any ideas left ?
