MDT 2012 Imaging think centre M72e


  • 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?  

    Any Ideas?

  • 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,

  • Thanks for the tip.  I will give that a try.   Since I reinstalled the driver and finishing out the bench load.  I will test on a new PC when another comes in.
