HP DL385G5 Provisioning - What to do, what not to do.

Version 1
    Share:|

    what not to do: use 2003 drivers.  You can spend a -long- time messing around with 2003 drivers, and never understand why they don't load.

     

    WinPE 1.6 has the 2003 kernel.

     

    what to do: use Vista drivers.

     

    WinPE 2.0 has the Vista kernel, and is easier to build WinPE images for.  Broadcom has a monolithic driver for Vista, for these cards (nc37x*, including nc373i, nc371*).  You may have to use an older version, but they do have a bunch of different versions on their driver downloads.  The latest versions all require an installer (boo), but the older versions you can get the direct drivers from.

     

    Incidentally, I was using these to build a 64-bit (amd64, vs i386) WinPE image.

     

    Here's the driver.txt I ended up using: this has DL385G5 + VMWare.  Many of the vmware drivers are probably unnecessary.  I end up making a top-level directory with a very short name since there's a constraint on the total number of characters you can have in this file.
