    SOL Driver not loading during silent install XPSP2/3 Intel DQ67OW

      Hi,

      When doing silent installs (inf based) I'm seeing around 60% of machines failing for.....

      Exactly the same hardware on all the machines, and they don't neccesarily fail everytime, but if I set them up cycling they'll normally fail and either lock up at shutdown (C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -r) or come up with the error message on the next boot. Drivers are bundled into one folder for chipset/amt/heci/sol etc etc, but have also tried a seperate silent install using the setup.exe.

      Boards are the OEMBLK DQ67OW (Crowpoint) with bios 0050. Drivers are the latest versions from downloadcenter / platformsw.
      Any ideas as this doesn't happen on Win7/Vista installs, only XP Pro 32/64 SP2 or SP3. Some machines will cycle quite happily 15-20 times installing the OS then randomly fall over with this problem. I'm at a loss. MEI hasn't been provisioned. Bios is in its default state.
