Precision 470 & Ris

Guys and Girls of the Experts Exchange world...

I have a problem that between my team, microsoft, intel, dell, and the whole internet still can not solve.

Im using the Dell Precision 470s which have an Intel(r) Pro 1000 network card built into the motherboard.  But when i PXE boot into RIS when i triy to apply the image i get an error message "The operating system you have selected does not contain the necessary drivers for your network adapter" i have looked all over the net and there are  known issues like this but they all pretty much solved by pasting the drivers in the I386 directory.  Here is what ive tried:

-Paste the drivers into the 1st top level image created I386 folder
-Create the $oem$\$1\Drivers\nic and paste all the drivers
-Edited the sif files for pnp location, oem preinstall yes, and computertype.
-Rebooted a million times
-Brought another server into the domain and reinstalled RIS.


Somebody somewhere must of got RIS working with the Precision 470.  

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE    Can someone let me know or point me in the right direction as I am desperate


My Hope & Faith

-- just double check your path...

DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
OverwriteOemFilesOnUpgrade=no
;FileSystem=ConvertNTFS
OemPreinstall=yes
;ExtendOemPartition=14000
OemPreinstall=Yes
OEMPnPDriversPath="drivers\m\co;drivers\mgmt;drivers\nic"  


Sounds like you are doing it right...
