  1. WdsClient Error – easiest way to get the driver into the image. This is either an undocumented feature or a bug – you decide.
    1) Start your pxe boot (ris assumed) to capture the image from the pc with the nic problem.
    2) Don’t click anything – press shift-f10 for cmd prompt
    3)install your nic driver (from usb) – run setup from your nic driver package or run
    drvload.exe d:\Folder\Driver.inf
    4)Capture the image (you should see ris server now)
    5)Drivers magically appear in the image
