RIS Preloading of Serial ATA Drivers Server 2003
Posted on 2004-04-13
I have just spent my Easter weekend installing RIS on my 2003 test server.
I have made several images with RIPREP (and identical hardware) and rolled them in and out as required. Everything has work as expected thus far working with IDE HDD.
I now need to roll out to a pc with different hardware and a serial ATA HDD (DiamondMax Plus 9) the installation fails due to Windows not finding any hard drive.
Is this failure down to the Bios of the ATA pc or the image not containing serial ATA drivers? (Installing XP from a CD works fine)
1. I need a step by step walk through on how add Serial ATA drivers to the image (if this is the solution to my problem, I will need a suitable ATA driver).
2. I need to start and edit the answer file created with the image. I don’t know where it is located of the name of it. Is there a list of options available for editing the answer file?
3. Is it possible to successfully relocate an image to another 2003 server, If so how?
Thanks in advance for any help and advice.
