MDT Lite Touch in VMWare Workstation for your test lab

So I came across a little but pretty tricky issue when trying to create a new MDT 2010 test lab in VMWare Workstation.

When trying to image up a bare metal VMware XP workstation I came across this error

When you create a new VM and use the XP VMWare profile it defaulted to and AMD PCNet NIC.

None of the MDT Lite Touch boot PE images have the AMD driver.  Took a little digging – but here it is.  AMD PCNet NIC

Import these drivers into your drivers into MDT, update your deployment share, and update the PXE boot image and you are set!

A quick and easy fix – hopefully this helps!  Its been awhile since I’ve had to use this exact setup!
