Hi everyone,

I'm trying to create an image for a HP dc7800 which has intel gigabit nic.  The image is up on the server, but whenever we try to pull it down we get the following:

The operating system image you selected does not contain the neceesary drivers for your network adapter.  Try selecing a different operating system image.  If the problem persists, contact your system administrator.

Setup cannot continue.  Press any key to exit.

I have downloaded the drivers from both HP and intel but neither have worked as of yet.  I have been putting all of the files into the image\i386 as well as \$oem$\$1\Drivers\nic

When I look on the RIS server in the event log, I see the following error:

An error occurred during the parsing of an INF file netclass.inf in the given section Manufacturer.

After a lot of googling i found that there is a hotfix available, but when I try to install it, it says that the service pack of my of my system is newer than I am applying.

Can anyone help me out?
