The funny thing is, we enter the computer name and hit enter, and when we
check the server, the server actually has the computer registered in the
domain, so the nic card is working to some extent.

Is this a PXE compliant machine or are you using a boot disk?


RIS uses 2 different sets of drivers and methods of transferring files when
installing.  The first is something called  trivial file transfer which is
the first part and then after it copies enough files it uses the actual card


It would help to know at what place it stops with that error.


1) boot from the remote floppy disk or the PXE compliant computer and press
F12 to start the download process.

2) At the welcome screen press enter.

3) Enter a user name and domain name and password that can enroll a computer
in you domain.

4) A computer account and Global Unique Identifier will be displayed and
press enter.

5) Windows 2000 setup starts.

6) May be prompted for a product key if you didn't enter it in a .sif file.


How far does it get?

Are you using OEM drivers?  (KB246184)

Is BIOS up to date?  (KB247983)

Subject: [windows2000] RIS Image problem

Hello all,


We are trying to get a RIS setup going for our XP and Windows 2000 machines.
We tried uploading an image of Windows XP SP1 and after uploading it we were
not able to bring it down to a machine.  We then uploaded a Windows XP
without any service packs and it came down without a problem.  So we figured
it's a problem with RIS and XP SP1.  We then tried to upload Windows 2000
SP4 and bring it down.  It went up fine, but when we try and bring it down,
it boots into the setup and then right after it tells you if you want to
delete all information from the drive and continue, a message appears
stating that the network card drivers that are installed for the image up on
the server, are not the same drivers for the machine that it is bringing it
down to.  We checked and they are the same network card and the same
drivers.  Any reason why this message would appear if they are the same?


Thanks for your help in advance,


Eddie @ Bridgecom
