2003 server, Microsoft RIS, OS image, install failure, network drivers?!?!?
Posted on 2006-07-13
I have a Windows 2003 server, and I have just setup RIS. I took one of the client computers in the room, got it fully setup (a brand new Dell Optiplex GX520) and used the RIP tools to create the image.
Everything so far has gone fine.
I then took another computer (another new Optiplex GX520), set it for PXE boot, and it started up just fine, and got the initial program to start the install.
After entering the authorized user password, and selecting the image I wanted (I put on 2 images, Windows XP SP2 install, and a fully configured system image). So, it starts it's little thing and then pops up:
The operating system image you selected does not contain the necessary drivers for your network adapter. Try selecting a different operating system image. If the problem persists yadda yadda ya.
Setup cannot continue, press any key to exit.
The driver MUST be in the image since the computer that I got the image from is identical and has the driver installed.
Since it's complaining about this - how can I go about repairing this problem? I really want to use the RIS as it would make my life soooo much easier when setting up rooms full of new computers.
any help would be appreciated!
