A "Push", or unattended installation of Windows Server 2003  provides a 
means for network administrators to easily install Windows Server 2003 on 
similarly equipped systems. The network administrator can create a bootable 
diskette that will automatically log into a central server and install the 
operating system from an image of the Windows Server 2003 installation 
directory stored on that server. This document provides instructions for a 
basic unattended installation of Windows Server 2003 (32-bit version) that 
includes the installation of drivers for the Intel(R) PRO/100 and Intel 
PRO/1000 adapters.

As part of the unattended installation, you can create teams and VLANs. If 
you wish to create one or more teams/VLANs as part of the unattended 
installation, you must also follow the instructions in the "Instructions for 
Creating Teams and VLANs (Optional)" section of this document. 

The elements necessary for the Windows Server 2003 unattended installation 

- A Windows Server 2003 system with a shared image of the Windows Server 
  2003 Installation CD. If you want to create teams/VLANs as part of the 
  unattended installation, you need to create a configuration file with the 
  team/VLAN information in it. To create this file, you need a sample system 
  that has the same type of adapters that will be in the systems receiving the 
  push installation. On the sample system, use Intel(R) PROSet to set up 
  the adapters in the teaming/VLAN configuration you want. This system could 
  also be the Windows Server 2003 mentioned above. For clarity, this system is 
  referred to in this page as the configured system. 
- An unattended installation configuration file that provides Windows Server 
  2003 setup with information it needs to complete the installation. The 
  name of this file is UNATTEND.TXT.
- A DOS boot diskette that contains Microsoft Network Client software for 
  connecting to the Windows Server 2003 system and AutoExec commands to 
  automatically start the Windows Server 2003 installation. 


Setting up an Install Directory on the File Server

The server must be setup with a distribution folder that holds the required 
Windows Server 2003 files and which clients can reach when connecting via 

For illustration purposes, the examples in this readme use the network 
share D:\PUSHWS03. To create this share:

1) Create a directory on the server, (EX: D:\PUSHWS03). 
2) Use the My Computer applet in Windows Server 2003 to locate the 
   D:\PUSHws03 folder.  
3) Right-click the folder and select Sharing.  
4) Select Share this folder, then give it a share name (EX: PUSHWS03). This 
   share name will be used to connect to this directory from the remote 
   target systems. By default, the permissions for this share is for 
   Everyone to have Full Control. 
5) Adjust permissions as necessary and click OK. 

To prepare the distribution folder:

1) Copy the entire contents of the Windows Server 2003 CD to D:\PUSHWS03.
2) Use Windows Explorer or XCOPY to maintain the same directory structure as 
   on the Windows Server 2003 CD. When the copy is complete, the Windows 
   Server 2003 installation files should be in the D:\PUSHWS03 directory and 
   the I386 and other installation directories should be subdirectories of 
   the D:\PUSHWS03 directory. 
3) Copy Unattend.txt from the Intel CD (found in APPS\SETUP\PUSH\WS03XP32) 
   into the shared directory D:\PUSHWS03\I386. 
4) Edit the Unattend.txt file with Notepad or another text-editor to 
   include your customizations. At a minimum you should change the items in 
   the [UserData] section of the file.  For Server Installations the [LicenseFilePrintData]
   section should be edited to specify the License type, and the number of users if
   the license type is PerServer. 
5) Create the driver install directory structure and copy the driver files 
   to it. 

NOTE: The PUSHCOPY.BAT file provided with the drivers in the 
\APPS\SETUP\PUSH directory copies the appropriate files for the 
installation. PUSHCOPY also copies the components needed to perform the 
automated installations contained in the [GuiRunOnce] section  of the sample 
UNATTEND.TXT file. These include an unattended installation of the Intel 
PROSet configuration and diagnostic utility. 

Example: From a Windows Server 2003 command prompt where e: is the drive 
letter of your CD-ROM drive:
	(you must be in the \APPS\SETUP\PUSH directory to run PUSHCOPY)
pushcopy D:\PUSHWS03\I386 WS03

The above command creates the $OEM$ directory structure and copies all the 
necessary files to install the driver and Intel PROSet. However, Intel 
PROSet is not installed unless the line: 

; Command0="c:\drivers\net\Intel\Proset.msi /qn"

is uncommented from unattend.txt.

See the "Directory Structure for Unattended Installation Files" section of 
this document for more information about the directory structure and file 
layout of the $OEM$ directory.

Instructions for Creating Teams and VLANs (Optional)

1) Copy SavRes.vbs from the Intel CD to the configured system. The file is 
   located in the APPS\WMI\ directory on the Intel CD. 
2) Open a command prompt on the configured system and navigate to the 
   directory containing SavRes.vbs. 
3) Run the following command: cscript SavRes.vbs save. A configuration file 
   called WmiConf.txt is created in the same directory. 
4) On the Windows Server 2003, create a directory in the $OEM$\$1 directory 
   called WMIScr. For example, on Windows Server 2003, the directory is 
5) Copy the SavRes.vbs and WmiConf.txt files to the WMIScr directory. 
6) Edit the GUIRunOnce section in the unattend.txt file in the following 
   way. After the command to install Intel PROSet and the drivers, add the 
   following command:  

          Command1="%systemroot%\system32\cmd.exe /c cscript c:\wmiscr\savres.vbs restore c:\wmiscr\wmiconf.txt > c:\wmiscr\output.txt"


Deployment Methods

Make sure that you have a copy of a network bootable MS-DOS* floppy that 
connects to the Z:\PUSHWS03 directory. Use it to boot the destination system 
(the one you want to push install to) and connect to this shared network 
directory. Run this command at the \\Server\PUSHWS03\i386) prompt: 
winnt /u:Z:\I386\unattend.txt /s:Z:\I386 /t:c 
where Z: equals mapped drive 

NOTE: In the above procedure, setup runs the installation in unattended mode 
and also detects the plug and play network adapters. All driver files are 
copied from the shared directory to the target system directories and 
installation of the OS and Network Adapters continues without user 

If you installed teams/VLANs as part of the unattended installation, view the 
results of the script execution in the output.txt file. This file is in 
the same directory as the SavRes.vbs file.


Microsoft Documentation for Unattended Installations of Windows Server 2003

For a complete description of the parameters supported in Unattend.txt see 
the DEPLOY.CHM document in the DEPLOY.CAB cabinet file on the  Windows 
Server 2003 CD. To obtain the document, use Internet Explorer 5.0 or greater 
to open DEPLOY.CAB in the \SUPPORT\TOOLS directory on the CD. 

Other documents and utilities in the DEPLOY.CAB file provide details and 
tools for setting up a variety of unattended installation methods.

Directory Structure For Unattended Installation Files

The following directory structure is created by PUSHCOPY.BAT to place the 
files necessary for the installation of the driver and Intel PROSet. The 
directory D:\PUSHWS03 refers to the location of the files from the Windows 
Server 2003 installation CD.


(From the PRO100\WS03XP32 directory of the Intel CD)


(From the PRO1000\WS03XP32 directory of the Intel CD)


      ;  The following two files will also be present if your Intel Driver CD 
      ;  supports the  
      ;      Intel(R) PRO/1000 MT Quad Port Server Adapter
      ;  and the
      ;      Intel(R) PRO/1000 MT Quad Port Network Connection

How To Update Drivers Manually

After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.

  • Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).

  • If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
