JSI Tip 6796. When you boot a Remote Boot Floppy Generator-created boot disk in preparation for a RIS install, you receive 'UNDI initialize failed, no media detected'?

The subject error message will occur if no network adapter is detected in your computer, or if no network connection is detected when the network adapter is initialized.

Make sure that the hardware is working and enabled in the BIOS, and that a proper cable connects the computer to a working a hub, switch, or router.
