Hello all, I just received a batch of Dell Precision Tower 7810 workstations and I need to get them imaged and deployed. The issue I am having is with the NIC and some odd behavior during OSD and afterward. I have the driver from Dell that came from their system driver pack (http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/enterprise-client/w/wiki/7556.precision-t7810-windows-7-driver-pack) and it seems to install okay. However, I can't get any of my applications to install during the TS with this driver. I can hit F8 and ping my DP and everything, but nothing will download and install. Once the TS finishes, and the machine boots into Windows, the taskbar shows the NIC as disconnected, but I have a network connection. The machine is added to the domain during the TS without issue. The SCCM client is installed during the TS, but it won't communicate with my management server once booted into Windows. I'm able to ping internally and externally without issue. I saw the comment on the Dell CAB webpage where the user used a newer driver, and I tried that as well with no success. So far, I have tried: the driver that comes in the Dell driver pack the driver download individual from Dell for this model the driver off Intels website the driver I pulled off a computer that came from Dell before I attempted to image with my organizations image All of these drivers exhibit the same behavior. The computer right out of the box using Dells image works fine. Anything done with OSD, and there are problems. I have no issues imaging any other machine whether it be made from Dell or HP For giggles, I installed Windows manually off a USB thumb drive and used the same drivers as above, and everything worked fine. I'm really scratching my head here on this one. I would say there is a problem with my image, but I don't have any issue with any other model across several vendors using the same image, so now I'm really at a loss. None of it really makes any sense at this point. The Dell T7810 uses the Intel I217-LM NIC, which I have other models that use as well, but the T7810 is the only one giving me issues. Any help/advice is greatly appreciated
