I am using MDT 2012 to image PCs with windows XP. Reason for XP is our software will not work with windows 7 as of now.
This is my setup. I have server 2012 with MDT 2012 and WDS install on it. This server is off the network, and is in itis own work group called MDT2012.
Client computer the I am imaging is a Thinkcentre M72e.
The client PC does a network boot to MDT2012 just fine. I am able to start the deployment at this point. Once Xp is loaded it boots into the desktop to install programs needed. I get a wizard error. Error states, " A connection to the deployment share could not be made. No networking devices were found on this machine. Once I reinstall the drivers for the network I can continue deployment. I have the Network driver in the MDT 2012. I also Have other drivers like video and sound. Those transferred fine. No problems. The Nic driver did not.
The Nic Driver is a realtek driver. Could you tell me how to fix this? Since I reinstalled the driver I think I have to do that in the MDT? Has anyone ran into this with the Thinkcentre M72e before?
You could try re-downloading the driver from the vendor's site, expanding the files, and reimporting it into MDT. By removing it and importing a fresh copy, you may fix the issue.
I hope that helps,
