How to add Nic drivers to RIS Images


Bookmark and Share

By: Johan Arwidmark
Posted On: 1/6/2006

General Guidelines on RIS Risetup (Flat) images

Note 1: For riprep images, add updates to the corresponding RIS Risetup (flat) Image


1. Make sure to either install hotfix KB823658 (also available for Windows 2000) or install Windows Server 2003 SP1.

Note: This solves an issue where RIS does not recognize the syntax of the [Manufacturer] section of the .inf file for the Nic driver.

2. At the same level as the i386 folder of the RIS image, create a $OEM$\$1\Drivers\Nic folder structure

Example: RemoteInstall\Setup\Eng\Images\Windows_XP_SP2\$OEM$\$1\Drivers\Nic

3. Copy all the updated driver files to the $oem$\$1\Drivers\Nic folder (see listing below)

4. Copy the updated *.sys driver file to the i386 folder (see listing below)

5. Add the following to the ristndrd.sif file

[Unattended]
OemPreinstall = Yes
OemPnpDriversPath = \Drivers\Nic

6. Delete all .PNF files from the i386 folder (or just delete the corresponding .PNF file if you know which one. They will be rebuilt if missing)

7. Restart the Remote Installation Service (BINLSVC)

Note: The first time you boot a RIS Client it will take some additional time because the RIS Server rebuilds the deleted PNF file(s).
