How to add a third-party OEM network adapter to a RIS installation
However, because the installation method begins by using Pre-Boot eXecution Environment (PXE) and then switches over to using the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol, the network adapter driver and its .inf file must be available during text-mode setup. If the driver and the .inf file are not available, you receive the following error message:
Adding the OEM Network Adapter Driver to the RIS ImageCheck with the OEM to determine whether the supplied network adapter driver is digitally signed. If the drivers from the manufacturer contain a catalog (.cat) file, they are probably properly signed. Drivers signed by Microsoft have been verified and tested to work with Windows. If your driver has not been signed but you still want to use it, make sure to add the following unattended-setup parameter to the .sif file that is located in the RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_name\I386\Templates folder:
DriverSigningPolicy = Ignore
- On the RIS server, copy the OEM-supplied .inf and .sys files for the network adapter to the RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_name\i386 folder. This allows Setup to use the driver during the text-mode portion of the installation.
- At the same level as the i386 folder on the RIS image, create a $oem$ folder. Use the following structure:\$oem$\$1\Drivers\Nic
- Copy the OEM-supplied driver files to this folder. Note the folder in which the .inf file looks for its drivers. Some manufacturers place the .inf file in a folder and copy the driver files from a subfolder. If this is the case, create the same folder structure below the one you created in this step.
- Make the following changes to the .sif file that is used for this image installation:[Unattended]Stop and then restart the Remote Installation service (BINLSVC) on the RIS server. To do this, type the following commands at the command prompt and press ENTER after each command:
OemPreinstall = yes
OemPnpDriversPath = \Drivers\Nicnet Stop binlsvcStopping and restarting the Remote Installation service is necessary because the Boot Information Negotiation Layer (BINL) needs to read all the new network adapter-related .inf files and create .pnf files in the image. This is a time-consuming task and is performed only when the Remote Installation service starts.
