The EnCase Network Boot Disk
The EnCase Network Boot Disk (ENBD) is now capable of both autodetecting network cards as well as allowing the user to specify what network card he or she is using.
If the user chooses the AUTO method, the ENBD will autodetect the network card, load the appropriate DOS drivers, then launch EnCase for DOS into server mode.
If the MANUAL method is chosen, the user has to specify the network card that he/she is using on the Subject machine. The ENBD will then load the appropriate DOS driver and launch EnCase for DOS.
Latest Update January 2006
Notice: The ENBD is intended for users of the EnCase application. The EN.EXE file that is needed (step 6) to complete the creation of the ENBD, is located in the EnCase installation directory.
If you are an EnCase version 3 user then the file is located in C:\program files\EnCase.
If you are an EnCase version 4 user then the file is located in C:\program files\EnCase4.
- Download the appropriate program by clicking here:
ENBD1006.exe for PCI and SCSI cards
ENBD_3COM.EXE for 3Com PCMCIA cards
ENBD_INTEL.EXE for Intel PCMCIA cards [Recommended]
ENBD_XIRCOM.EXE for Xircom PCMCIA cards [Highly Recommended]
ENBD_NETGEAR.EXE for NetGear PCMCIA cards [Not Recommended as 32-bit PC-Card network cards will not work with older 16-bit PCMCIA legacy systems]
- Save the file to your desktop.
- Have a blank, formatted floppy in your floppy drive
- Double-click the file and follow the on-screen prompts.
- Your EnCase Network Boot Disk will be created.
- When it is finished, get the latest EN.EXE file and copy that to the diskette.

Further words from Bob Gagnon, creator of the new Network Boot Disk:
This boot disk is intended to be used when the target Server/PC/laptop has an onboard NIC that cannot or should not be disabled.
Please test the diskette on your own system before using it in a 'live' situation. Report any errors or enhancement requests. Report any observations, enhancements or additional drivers that we may use.
The disk holds 26 drivers of the most common (onboard) drivers found on most laptops, desktops and servers representing 190 variants. (It's not exhaustive but a good start.)
If the card does not detect due to a program error you will be brought to a menu listing allowing a manual loading of the proper driver.
If the diskette does not contain the appropriate driver then you will be presented with a PCI scan result of the system with the NIC details. Please make note of it for onsite creation of the proper diskette and future inclusion on this diskette.
The utilities cobbled together on this diskette are entirely freeware and may be distributed to other units.
