Problems with DOS driver for NC7131 and TCP v1.0

Problems with DOS driver for NC7131 and TCP v1.0

We use a standard boot disk for performing Ghost images of our HP servers and it works fine for all NIC's except the NC7131. The tcptsr.exe TCP 1.0 dos driver fails to load with a 'not enough memory error' during the boot. Obviously the driver for the NC7131 is a little more memory hungry than others, but no matter what I try to tune the memory management of this boot disk, I can't get it to load properly. Has anyone else come across this scenario, and did you find a resolution?

If it helps, the drivers for the NC3163 and the NC7700 both work fine on the same boot disk.

Thanks.

Hi Roger, thanks for the response.

Yep those are the drivers I'm using, which are the latest. They work fine, except that they don't play too well with the DOS TCP driver (tcptsr.exe). I guess anyone who has created a DOS boot disk for a TCP/IP network and successfully used the NC7131 network card would be able to help me.
