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

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

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!

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? :-)

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
