  • adding NIC Drivers to win2k3 server CD

    Hi,

    I have just recently slipstreamed windows 2003 server to incorporate SP1 & burnt to CD and it works like a dream. Problem i am now having is with my NIC drivers, is it possible to add the NIC drivers to the CD so when windows has finished installing i look in device manager and everything is fine and dandy.

    Thanks in advance !!

    this is litel bit trike becuse you need to add the unattended file in the CD or you can recreate it by using setup manager ( TOOLS.CAB)

    i add you link it is talk about this but you need to work with RIS
    http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;314479

    if you ask me you can do it with out RIS
    you ask how ok

    under I386 you have file named "UNATTEND.TXT" you need to edit this files
    under "[Unattended]" add this

    [Unattended]
    DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
    OemPnpDriversPath=\Drivers\Nic

    after you did it you need to open under I386 this path
    $OEM$\$1\DRIVER\NIC

    copy under NIC the nic drivers all of them include folders and sub folders
    you need to copy this files ( *.sys *.inf *.cad ) to the I386 ROOT

    i think this is all

    try to do this it is need to work but i didnt try it

    i can tell you on RIS it is working
    Thanks

      I do not want it to work with RIS, i just want to know if it is possible to add network drivers to my Windows 2003 Server installation CD. Sorry for any confusion.

          Hi,

          I tried what the previous reply said and it still never worked, but i found a tool called NLite which worked.
