Oooh gurus of techsupport_ot /foamy|
Trying to get RIS working on a set of HP DC7700 form factors (Intel 82566DM nics) Coming up with the dreaded "Your network adapters are not supported" error on the txt install.
Gone through every goddamn thing by the book bar sacrificing a chicken over the server, but still cannot get the bastard to work. I have the chipset confirmed via a grab from the RIS base, have installed the drivers, added to the POEM and i386, but still no joy.
At this point, I suspect it may be that old 4k limitation on RIS INFs rearing its head. Unfortunately, intel multipack their drivers in a big fat one-size-fits-all that means I end up spending ages ripping out extra language packs and chipsets...and still cannot get the damned infs down to less than ~40k.
Anyone else come across these bastard machines and managed to get one to RIS? (Can't go alternates, legacy systems, old as hell, and if I ever meet my predecessor I am going to shove my foot so far up his arse he can taste my socks)
