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, contact your administrator. Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit.

I have built a built a ris server and run riprep on a HP DC5800 Sff.

I then tried to boot from this image, but got the above error.

I have looked at loads of microsoft pages but still get the same message.

I created file \\remoteinstall\setup\english\images\HP_DC5800\$oem$\$1\Drivers\Nic

Then edited the riprep.sif file in the templates folder

OemPreinstall = yes

OemPnpDriversPath = \Drivers\Nic

Restarted the remote installation services.

Booted the PC again, still same error.

Any ideas?
