I wonder if anyone can shed a light on this little problem,
I have recently recieved 20 Dell Optiplex GX280 machine with which to teach my students.
Lesson plans dictate that I must show the students how to install Ethernet card drivers using the "Have Disk" method via the Hardware Manager.
My problem is that when I carry out this method, when selecting the .inf file instead of being presented with a list of ethernet cards to choose from the box is blank.
If I install the full setup file (15MB) from the Dell support website first and then try the "Have Disk" method then I am presented with the list of X amount of cards to choose from.
I would like to get the specific drivers onto a floppy (ie the .inf, .sys and the other one (cant remember its extension)) but still be able to see the list in the "Have Disk" dialogue box.
Anyone got any idea what file holds the info regarding that list of devices?
If I'm not really that clear in this post please email me and I can elaborate further.
