I am upgrading our Windows 2000 systems to XP Pro using the unattended
setup. I am however experiencing a problem with some of the clients not
finding their NIC cards after the upgrades complete. I think it has
something to do with the Dynamic Updates part of the installation and the
proper drivers being downloaded for some clients and not for others. The
clients are all identical hardware wise and the drivers in question are for
the Intel Pro 100 VE network adapters.

any ideas??

thanks

Hi,

Where ever you store your drivers you need to have the ".dos" files for all the version of network cards. (The dos drivers are mainly found on the driver media (cd) that came with the nic) or download them from the web.

Usually the drivers are kept in their own folder and the setup will reference all folder and sub-folders until it finds the correct files.

Let me know how you get on.
