I search for parameters to forcing speed and duplex type
during unattended NT 4.0 installation for the
Intel Etherexpress Pro 100B network card.
Please write exact parameters for 10Mbps and half-duplex!
THANX

I need the exact parameters to force 10Mbps and half duplex
during unattended installation, not general information.

Isn't this a PCI card ? If so normally you would not have to specify any parameters during install.  How do you install it ? Does NT detect the card ?

I guess the card is defaulting to 100Mbps and you want it on 10 ? Have you looked in the oemsetup.inf file for a parameter concerning speed and duplex?

Zimmi,
install the NIC manualy on a machine.
Set al the params you need (10Mbit,half duplex,...)
Then look at
HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\[your-NIC]X\parameters

Here you'll find the names AND value for the unattend.txt file.
Gert.
