    Anyone able to PXE boot a Dell Latitude E3350?

    MrGadget Expert

      I'm running Landesk 9.6 SP2

      In trying to PXE boot a new E3350 Laptop it gets the error Failed to get localhost IP address or resolve core server name.

      I've had this before when the correct nic driver was not in WinPe but I have added a windows 7, tried windows 8 drivers from Dell.

      Went to realtek and tried their drivers in Winpe but I get the same error.

      This computer is not running under UEFI.

          9.6 has WinPE 5.0 which requires Windows 8.1 driver (32 bit). I tried to find the E3350 on Dells site to point you at the right driver but that model doesn't exist?

            I tried Win 7 32bit, a win 8 32 bit but no go. I'm looking for a 8.1 32bit.

            I was getting my info 2nd hand so I miss understood what was happening.

            1. It picks up a IP

            2. goes to the F8 screen

            3. I choose Winpe Provisioning

            4 It loads winpe, you see the drivers load in a CMD windows, it runs the winpeutil disablefirewall, runs reg import all.reg, shows the partitions on the hard drive, starts diskpart, announces Disk 0 is the selected disk and says the operation is completed successful, shows ip address as 127.0.0.1, then waits for a IP and times out.

              When you pxe boot the system uses a generic nic driver so that's working but you do need to find the right Win 8.1 32bit driver to inject into the WinPE image. Once you have injected the driver make sure you redeploy your PXE rep or it wont have the new driver.

               

              What model realtek network card is in this PC?

                With the original install of the OS in Device Manager it says Realtek PCIE GBE.

                 

                If I install the 8.1 driver in WinPe when it is Pxe booting after the driver I put in loads in the cmd window it says This driver requires a restart. but I have the same waiting for an IP after.

                  Forget trying to Pxe Boot to the Provisioning menu with this model. After trying all 64 and 32 bit drivers, none will work. The 8.1 32bit loads but gives a message it needs to restart.

                    Was anyone able to get this working.  I have tried the new driver on Realtek website with no luck (0016-Install_Win8_8.1_8044_04012016)

                      Have you considered re-installing the Dell WinPE 5 drivers? They were updated 4/12/2016. WinPE 5.0 Driver CAB - Enterprise Client - Wiki - Client and Mobile Solutions - Dell Community

                       

                      They include x86 and x64 versions of Realtek PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet controllers. The update before that was 3/8/2016, so there's 2 new versions out since you posted this.

                       

                      Also, there is no Latitude E3350... there is a Latitude 3350. But I'd double check your model just to be sure. Here's the direct link for the 8.1 driver cab (308.44MB) http://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER03558680M/1/3350-win8.1-A01-X836V.CAB that I retrieved from Product Support | Dell US which, mind you, is on version A01 and was released 03/07/2016.

                        We just got a few Latitude 3350s in and I'm running into the same issue. We're on LANDESK 2016 and I've downloaded Dell's latest WinPE 10 driver CAB. I've also tried the driver from Realtek's site, as well as Win7 and 8 drivers with no luck. All of the drivers load, but say they require a reboot. Did anyone else get it working?

                          I've never seen the reboot prompt for drivers in WinPE before... any way you could take a picture or screenshot of that?
                          Also, what method are you using to put the drivers into the boot wim?

                            I removed all the realtek driver from the boot.wim file with Landesk.  Then installed all the cab driver files from dell manually.  I will post the commands if someone needs them.

                             

                            This fixed my issue.  I have tested this with LDMS 2016 and LDMS 9.5 sp2

                             

                            Here are the commands

                              Sure, here's a picture. I'm using the option under OS Provisioning>Preboot>Manage Drivers in WinPE Image to add the drivers.

                                When you say "manually", do you mean with dism? That was going to be my next suggestion. I've found LD's driver injection method to be fickle at best. All my boot wims are managed via dism.

                                  marcouj woa, way too many commands there. This would be much better:

                                   

                                  Dism /Image:C:\Mount /Add-Driver /Driver:"C:\Dell Driver pack WinPe 10" /Recurse /ForceUnsigned


                                  The /Recurse switch will install all drivers in that folder and subfolders with a single command.

                                    Excellent, I'll try that on Monday. Thanks for the help.
