IBM x3850-M2 Provisioning

Version 2

    This machine has Broadcom NICs.


    There is one of these in the BL Sustaining Engineering lab.


    Windows 2008 simply requires a WinPE and NIC driver (this is common in OS provisioning, 2003 on newest hardware tends to require more drivers).


    Broadcom provides a combined 2008 and 2003 driver that should theoretically work for both.  For WinPE, use the RIS drivers.


    We suspect that the x3850 and x3650 use the same drivers.
