Searched around and found different answers but am unsure if they work.  Would anyone know a preferred method to achieve the following through the K2000?

Windows 7

Sysprep re-enables "checks the checkbox" for the NIC's -Properties--> Configure-->Power Management Tab
"Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"

What would be the best method to have a k2000 post install task to un-check that check box?

You could incorporate this into a script or possibly postinstall task:

  • Would you do something like create a .reg file and add that as a post install application task? How would you write that so it applies to any hardware model (maybe different nic manufacturer), am a little confused with the DeviceNumber's of 0000 0001 and so on. I see that these have different adaptor information. Could a script be written that identifies through DriverDesc being intel?

Thank you nhene for the link.  Created a .reg file and used 0007 as the devicenumber since that was the one that displayed the correct nic information across multiple dell computer models.  And then uploaded that file to a post install application task with the appropriate command to run merge that file to the registry.
