NIC Driver

  1. Download both the Windows 2000 and Windows XP drivers for the NIC.
  2. On the RIS server, copy the Windows 2000 .inf and .sys files for the network adapter to the RemoteInstall\Setup\English\Images\<IMAGE>\i386 folder. This allows Setup to use the driver during the text-mode portion of the installation.
  3. Copy the Windows XP driver files to $oem$\$1\Drivers\Nic.
  4. 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:
net Stop binlsvc
net Start binlsvc

Stopping 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.
