HP Proliant DL380 G5 & Barts Boot Disk: NDIS (.dos) driver??

Hey all. Where can I find a .dos NDIS driver for use on a Barts Boot disk, so we can ghost an image onto this box?

I believe the NIC is a NC373i (Broadcom mfg)

FYI-- SP32840.exe did not work for me.

Thanks

Try the following url:

You can see there HP NC-Series Drivers for DOS NDIS2 leading to the url below:

Thanks...

I actually had tried that driver, and it doesnt work. The driver appears to work, and then it fails. I read somewhere that it might be due to the NIC being PCI-express rather than PCI bus???

Anyone else know of something that will work?

The driver (n100.dos) appears to be loading ok, but right at the point where MSNET: Network Initializing...

It bombs saying it cannot locate the NIC. 1 of the possible reasons it lists is that the system may not support the PCI bus.

It follows with Error 7306
and
Error 7321

thanks

Hi,

I believe that the embedded NC373i is based on the Broadcom Netextreme II chipset BC5708.

Try the BC5708 NDIS2 driver kit which can be downloaded from the following link.

I hope this helps.

Thanks man... yeah, I've tried that driver too. No luck...

Same goes for SP34218

Just re-tried the bxnd20x.dos driver, and no luck again... it failed with error 33 on Netbind, unable to bind...
