HPC Pack 2016 Update 3 deployment unable to find NICs when initializing NICs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dell 12 Gen R640 and R740. 10 GB Broadcom NIC set for Private network. Machine boots with PXE and downloads the boot.ini and wim file. Drivers were verified by Dell correct for specific firmware and model.

    Drivers were loaded for the Image. Once the windows starts its unattended install Windows does not see the NICs and fails.

    Any ideas how I can get Windows to see the NICs during unattended install. Drivers have been loaded in the HPC Pack.

  • The boot.wim used in HPC Pack 2012 R2 or HPC Pack 2016 are both from Windows Server 2012 R2, so you shall also install NIC driver for Windows Server 2012 R2.
