There is one thing cbo forgot in his otherwise splendid example.
If NT does not detect your NIC this will not work...

If have made a procedure on how to add a NIC to the unattended install, I could mail this to you...

Hi ghinstek,
yes you are right. NT will ONLY search for the listet NIC's:

"LimitTo = AMDPCI, NETFLEX3, E100BPCI"

And these cards must be able for a unattended detection and installation! In the guide from MS there's a list for cards who are able for this. And there is a HOWTO to prepare .INF files for unattend aware.

bye cbo

cbo,
What I was trying to say is that the procedure that I've written up takes care of that !
It will help you to either tell the unattend process to install a specific NIC or you can go all the way and integrate a new undetected PCI NIC into the NTdetect process (so that it becomes one of the standard NIC's)...
Of course as you say, you must have or create a .inf file!

cbo120897Commented:
Ah, I understand! But:
Is your procedure stopping the unattended process?
In which language is the procedure written?
How many points does the procedure cost, when jmays won't see the procedure? :-)

bye cbo

KoenCommented:
The procedure is in plain english !! No programming involved just adding a few params here and there in the installation files of NT, purely text editing...

The procedure costs nothing : I only need an e-mail address (it's a word document of about 3 pages and I don't feel like pasting it in here).

If you are uncomfortable about placing your mail address here : mail me at Koen_vdg@yahoo.com

you also could extract the oemnadzz.in_ file ( in the i386 directory) and manually add the network cards you want
save the file as oemnadzz.inf and rename oemnadzz.in_  to oemnadzz.old

good luck
