  1. I tried this method for a BroadCom 57xx network interface card and it failed. Although it did try to install it evidenced by the yellowed out Ethernet Controller unter network device in the device manager -- that it would not do before. It is the Dell download R87461.exe where I got the driver. What else can I do to get this NIC installed ? Is it a new Microsoft driver signing issue or what ? Thanks. Bob.Rein@FAA.GOV
  2. Help with Unattend installs I have a brand new Dell computer. My goal is to do a WindowsXP SP2 unattended install on top of the NTFS image that ships from Dell. Can this be done ? I have been trying it with this command from a secondary hard drive I installed (d drive): d:\i386\Winnt.exe /s:d:\i386 /rx:d:\temp /t:d: /u:d:\i386\winnt.sif . When I run this I get an error stating that "unable to locate a drive with the required amount of free space". The Dell NTFS partition does not a drive letter at the start of this command. If I give it a drive letter then I will lose the Dell factory image. Here is the contents of my Winnt.sif: ;SetupMgrTag [Data] AutoPartition=0 MsDosInitiated="0" UnattendedInstall="Yes" AutomaticUpdates = 1 [unattended] UnattendMode = FullUnattended OemPreinstall=Yes TargetPath=\WINDOWS ActivateProxy = Proxy AutoActivate = Yes Repartition = No WaitForReboot = Yes UnattendSwitch = Yes OemSkipEula = YES FileSystem=* [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword=1b53af118c38fbda443b108f3fa6cb6d24f4c3cfe618209931e861819d5f6f00 EncryptedAdminPassword=Yes OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=20 [userData] FullName="Test" OrgName="DOT" [TapiLocation] CountryCode=1 Dialing=Tone LongDistanceAccess="9," [RegionalSettings] LanguageGroup=1 [setupMgr] ComputerName0=VASWATST0U27482 ComputerName1=VASWATST0U27483 [branding] BrandIEUsingUnattended=Yes [Proxy] Proxy_Enable=1 Use_Same_Proxy=1 Proxy_Override = "172.*;<local>" HTTP_Proxy_Server = Test.Test.ORG:8080 Use_Same_Proxy = 1 [GuiRunOnce] Command0="c:\windows\system32\ipconfig.exe /release" Command1="c:\windows\System32\ipconfig.exe /renew" Command2=d:\framepkg.exe [identification] JoinDomain=Test DomainAdmin="Test\Install Computer" DomainAdminPassword=Test MachineObjectOU = "OU=Computers,OU=Lost And Found,OU=ASW,OU=Lose,OU=Win,OU=LOB,DC=Test,DC=Org" [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=No [NetAdapters] Adapter1=params.Adapter1 [params.Adapter1] INFID=* [NetClients] MS_MSClient=params.MS_MSClient [NetServices] MS_SERVER=params.MS_SERVER [NetProtocols] MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP [params.MS_TCPIP] DNS=No UseDomainNameDevolution=No EnableLMHosts=No AdapterSections=params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1 DNSSuffixSearchOrder = asw.Test.Org SyncDomainWithMembership = 0 [params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1] SpecificTo=Adapter1 DHCP=Yes DNSServerSearchOrder=, WINS=Yes WinsServerList=, NetBIOSOptions=0 [WindowsFirewall] Profiles=WindowsFirewall.Standard LogFile = "%WINDIR%\pfirewall.log" LogSize = 4096 LogDroppedPackets = 1 LogConnections = 1 [WindowsFirewall.Standard] Type = 3 Mode = 1 Exceptions = 1 Notifications = 1 MulticastBroadcastResponse = 1 AllowedPrograms = WindowsFirewall.RemoteAssistance Services = WindowsFirewall.RemoteDesktop [WindowsFirewall.RemoteAssistance] Program = "%WINDIR%\System32\Sessmgr.exe" Name = "Remote Assistance" Mode = 1 Scope = 0 [WindowsFirewall.RemoteDesktop] Type = 2 Mode = 1 Scope = 0 [WindowsFirewall] Profiles = WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall [WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall] Mode = 0 [TerminalServices] AllowConnections = 1
