Hi Guys,

I am trying to install Debian 7 through the iDrac6 interface onto our dedicated server at a datacentre.

every time we get to the nic card section it asks for a *.fw file. normally I would have it on a usb or cd and would just insert it and continue.

However this is not an option so I would like to know how I could modify the iso file to already contain the non-free firmware. I have looked far and wide on the internet and I cannot find any answers.

So I am hoping that somebody here has had a similar issue and found a solution.

You just can adept it, if you dont need initrd support you can skip this step just add the files to the iso image tree and recreate the image and the npoint the installer to the fw files during setup.
