Yes, it is normal. Look through the scripts that deal with the PXE REP.
The WinPE image on the Core is in "location A".
The same image is renamed and in a different location on "the PXE REP" (whether it is the Core) - "location B".
It's "location B" which feeds the PXE-menu / the image that's downloaded. So yes, you need to update PXE-reps after adding drivers. Even if the PXE-rep is the Core itself.

if the PE image is the same for every location, with the same name, you can copy the image file only. It is not necessary to install PXE REP new (only if the SP's are updated)
OK thanx, i suspected it;
I saw the two paths for the peboot.img files:
The first is in the VBOOT folder C:\Programmi\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\landesk\vboot\ldvpe1.img and it is update from driver adding wizard
The second is in the PXE folder C:\Programmi\LANDesk\PXE\System\images\peboot.img and is aupdated only after reinstalling the PXE-rep
I was wondering why PXE boot works fine and the winpe network not ?? is the PXE boot using the peboot.img and is winpe network using the ldvpe1.img or viceversa?
Sorry but i cannot catch something in the process.
Anyway thanx for help
Right AHE, infact i created a batch to update peboot.img:)
That's correct, Axel.
People who can read scripts can figure out easily what to do. For all the others the relatively simple option is to just re-install the PXE rep.
I tend to let advanced users do their own stuff + try not to confuse more new people to LANDesk (since this is read by people with all sorts of ranges) :).

peboot.img is the renamed ldvpe1.img.
PXE boot does not use a normal driver, it's a boot rom of the network card...
But Windows PE need a network driver to connect to the network, like your XP or Visto need, or other operating systems...
I thought that when the winpe search for network drivers it looks in the X:\I386\system32\drivers\ folder that is updated as the folder drivers in the ldvpe1.img but not as the folder drivers in the peboot.img, so it seems to have network drivers in winpe but till you don't update also peboot.img it does not work...??
sorry, but I'm in a bit hurry...
Look at this documents, they described the adding of some drivers and something more
