HIPS on XP Diskless

I'm trying to install HIPS on Windows XP machines that are booting off ISCSI Luns but i'm having issues getting it working. Everytime i install it Windows blue screens. I've gotten it installed a couple of times but it wont run. I've noticed when it installs that in the device manage i see a new device, "McAfee Core NDIS Intermediate Filter Miniport" which is not completly installed. I'm thinking that if i'm able to get this device installed correctly then I would be able to get HIPS running. I've read some posts that state this device is required for HIPS 8.0 and Windows XP, but when i install HIPS on a machine with a local hard drive "McAfee Core NDIS Intermediate Filter miniport" never shows up in the device manager.

    I don't think this has been tested before, nor would be supported.  Have you tried it with newer OSes (Windows 7 or 8)?

    Make sure you've enabled VIEW -> VIEW HIDDEN DEVICES.  That is the HIPS NDIS driver for Windows XP, that is required for Network IPS and Firewall functionality.  If it doesn't show, then HIPS probably isn't installed properly.
