These steps recently worked for the 755.
1. Change the BIOS to enable PXE
2. Go to DELL's site, put in the service tag and downloaded the drivers.
3. Follow this article: "How to add drivers to the WinPE Image http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-2158 to inject the drivers:
a. Inject the Intel NIC drivers. (I added all the drivers in the XP and win2k folder as if it were one driver. There were three sys and inf files. I chose one randomly but then added all the other as "additional files" to the driver.)
b. Inject the SATA driver: Follow this article: http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-1157
a. Modifiy the TXTSETUP.OEM per the link above
b. Overwrite the TXTSETUP.OEM with WinImage as it is faster than using the add a driver wizard to delete and read the driver.
7. It should now PXE Boot just fine and load the SATA and NIC drivers.
Hi there all
i am having similar problems trying to get the Dell L60 NIC drivers to work in WinPE.
I have downloaded the driver from Dell.
I have added them to the WinPE
I have confirmed within an XP install that they are the correct drivers
I have added all the files in WinXP and Win2K driver lists as extras.
I have redeployed PXE Rep between every try.
... and i still cant get it to load the driver for WinPE.
It device manager it presents as Intel(R) Pro 100 M Network Connection.
has anyone got the L60 working with WinPE and what driver file have you used.
Hi guys --
Specifically with some of the newer intel, 3Com and realtek drivers I found that you have to inject more than just the .sys and .inf files. How are you injecting the drivers into the Windows PE boot image-- are you using winimage to do this manually or the UI from the LANDesk console? If there are .din files, additional exe's with the Windows XP driver set, etc, you must add them as well - there are some more specifics but I am away from my system at the moment so I can't pull the document with the file extensions I found had to be added as well. While not the optimal way, try taking ALL of the files from the extracted XP driver and inject the inf files into the inf directory, the .sys file in the drivers directory and the rest in the system32 of the image.
I experienced this issue with the Lenovo T410, it has the 82577LM NIC. Though I'm using WAIK to manually make my WinPE CD the drvload command did not work for this NIC driver like it did for all the previous ones I added for whatever reason. I followed as stated above and copied ALL files .inf .sys .cat .dll files to the INF folder, the .sys files to the Drivers folder. I didn't need to add anything to the System32 directory and now I have network support for the 82577LM NIC in WinPE. I attached the drivers for the T410 that I copied from the rescue and recovery WinPE boot environment in case anyone needed them I think they support 82567 cards as well as the 82577...

About37 - with the 410, did you notice that the deployment speed is dramatically reduced compared to other models?
We have a range of laptops and desktops which take no more than 20 mins to drop the image through WinPE but the 41 0takes about 2 hrs. I've edited the inf file to include the 410's device id and it still takes 2 hours.
I am using these drivers, also experiecing a huge decrease in speed of deployment, has anyone found a fix for this. this has been KILLING me. drivers work but take 2 hours + to image!
No luck with those drivers, it says it cant find the network adapter driver.
I am having the same issue with the T410 and X201 using winpe 2.0. Has anyone tried updating the chipset on winpe? I am going to try that tomorrow and will let you know if I see any improvement. My deployments take about 40 minutes from around 8. That is just a base winxp sp3 image with patches.
After upgrading to LANDesk 9.0 it uses WinPE 2.0. no longer does it recongize the xp 32-bit drivers. so i tried the vista-32 bit drivers and WA-LA! speed was back to normal. doesnt really provide an answer as to why this was happening, but since we upgraded, i no longer care at this point!
