    Trying to find a Realtek 64bit LAN driver for WIN PE 3.0/3.1

    We have purchased over 100 ASUS ET2400INT All-In-One PCs and decided to create a Windows 7 Ent 64bit image using WDS. However when we PXE boot to Win PE 3.0 we get the generic microsoft message saying that we need the correct network driver.

    We have injected numerous realtek win7 (32 and 64 bit) from ASUS and Realtek but still no joy.

    Has anyone else experienced this problem who could provide a solution?

    Is it not the one avalible from here: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - All-in-one PCs- ASUS All-in-One PC ET2400INT

    http://support.asus.com/download/dow...odel=ET2400INT

    This is another aspect where MDT can be helpful, if it can't find the NIC driver it will give you the device PNP id so it is usually easy enough to find.

    I have already injected those drivers to my PE environment, but no joy!

    Can you guide me further with this MDT approach please

    Many thanks

    Could you run the following command (from the command prompt) and post the hardware ID?

    Code:
    wmic nic where (NetConnectionID="Local Area Connection") get PNPDeviceID | find "PCI\"

    Arthur do you want me to run this in the PE environment when I get the error message?

    Shift + F10 for command prompt

    Can you do it from inside Windows 7?

    Hi Arthur,

    I've injected those drivers successfully and applied the new boot image to WDS, but I still get the same problem.

    Any other ideas?

    Can I also mention, I can boot my old win pe 2.0 (x86) for my winxp images with network access, so I have correct drivers in there for vista 32bit architecture!

    However that is no good, I need to boot with PE 3.0 and deploy win7 x64

    This is really frustrating me, especially when I have injected the correct drivers.

    is your boot image x86 or x64 (regardless of the os youre deploying you need x86 drivers for an x86 boot.wim and so on)

    How are you injecting the drivers and are you sure thats working correctly?

    My boot image is x64 and I'm injecting my drivers by mounting my wim file and using the following command:

    DISM /image:c:\winpe_x64\mount /Add-Driver /driver:C:\YOUR_FOLDER_OF_INF_DRIVERS\ /recurse

    and then unmounting it and adding it to WDS

    Does it work if you do a fresh install of 7 from CD then add the drivers to the install. It could be that the driver si not adding properly or there is a conflicting version of driver. I had this with an intel NIC driver for a Toshiba laptop (why am I not supprised). That would inject but simply would not work under WinPE, I ended up having to use an older version of the driver that would work then installing the latest one afterwards because they had screwed something up in the driver which prevented it from being picked up under PE.

    Are you committing the changes when unmounting the WIM? Just thought I would check.
    Code:
    dism /Unmount-Wim /Commit /MountDir:C:\winpe_x64\mount

    I am committing the unmount.

    I do a fresh install of 7 and device manager doesn't see the nic driver. I install the same driver that I injected into win PE manually through device manager and it successfully installs.
