Windows 7 Scripted Installs

I'm trying a scripted install. Got one to work on a really old machine. Trying it on a Dell GX 520 and a Latitude XT. Gives an error of "windows installation cannot continue because a required driver could not be installed."

Any ideas?

Are you doing a manual or automated installation?

I'd suggest trying a manual first, loading any drivers you need, and then using the driver harvesting tool to upload drivers to the KBOX.

What version of the KBOX are you using? This sounds like a network driver issue.
If using version 3, have you followed the article on Kace's website? Drivers 3.0 explained:
http://www.kace.com/support/customer/faq/index.php?action=artikel&cat=62&id=889&artlang=en
These driver updates are essential, and don't forget about the supplemental pack. Then recache KPE/KPE64 and try again.
The GX520 uses a Broadcom NetExtreme and these drivers should solve your issue.

Ehh, jkatkace not so sure that is what bgatech wants.

Do you by chance know which driver is not loading?

Did the by hand trick and it worked, which is weird. You would think if the scripted failed, that the CD would fail or prompt for a driver, but it didn't. I captured the drivers and uploaded, but that didn't help. The only article that I've found that sheds any light on the problem is : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/967754/EN-US. I'm testing the 64-bit installation now.

bgatech,

Is the problem when you are booting up into KPE, before you can even choose your scripted install? If so, please see my comments above to solve the drivers issue with booting to KPE. Otherwise, can you be more specific about what you are doing and when you are seeing the error.

64-bit script worked. I'm re-importing my 32-bit disk. I'm thinking it is either a network card driver or a HD driver.

The scripted install starts. Some time after "Installing Updates" the error message pops up.

Corey was right. It was the network driver, but not what I expected. I deleted all the 7 drivers I had captured and then it started working.
