Add from INF

In CCBoot previous versions, when using CCBoot PNP tool to collect NIC drivers, the new machine must be attached with a HDD. From CCBoot v3.0 build 20131023, we add the "Add from INF" function. With this new function, as long as one client can diskless boot successfully, you could use the CCBoot PNP tool to add NIC drivers (such as Win7 Realtek NIC drivers)from INF on that client directly, which is more convenient.

1. Download Win7 Realtek NIC drivers and exact it into a USB key. 

2. Please merge image first. 

3. If you are using CCBoot PNP tool on the server, it doesn't matter if there are no clients that can diskless boot successfully. You can use "Load Image" and "Add from INF" function. The steps are as follows.

3.1 Download CCBootPnP.exe (64bit) file from then extract this file, and run CCBoot PnP tool.

3.2 In the pop up "CCBootPNP" dialog box, click the "Load Image" button to select a ".vhd" image file.After image loaded, in the pop up "CCBootPnP" dialog box, click the"OK" button (Figure 1-2).
