Finding a machine with a NIC ROM is rare.

Very rare. Why do you have such?

I don't know Bob.

This is one of a big order Radio Shack bought from Compaq.

I am not knowledgeable enough to answer your why.

THANKS BOB

Then ignore that "failure".

The NIC ROM was a "chip" we would add to machines so they could boot from the network. No local hard disks were needed for such operations or "systems".

It's 100% certain that any home PC will fail a test for a NIC ROM.
