PXE boot with WinPE cant find SATA driver

Hello

 

Im using LD 8.8 with SP4. got a PXE rep on another server and its working correctly.

When im trying to boot into WinPE menu with a Dell Optiplex 745 it finds the network driver but the SATA driver cannot be found.

Ive tried everything i can think of, i have:

 

Added all the possible SATA drivers for the 745, (its a ICH8 controller) into the Winpe image, ive copied the modified image to the PXE rep and named it peboot.img as it should be.

Ive edited the  txtsetup.oem files to specify just the correct controller.

Ive set the SATA disk in Legacy mode in BIOS.

Updated BIOS to newest version.

 

Nothing works..

 

 

i get this "error" message in the WinPE menu screen.

 

DiskPart was unable to open or read the script file.

Make sure the file you specified exits.

"There is not an available hard disk, or the hard disk driver is not loaded.

Please inject the proper hard drive controller drivers.

The steps to inject drivers into the WinPE image file can be found at http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-2158"

Press any key to continue....

    This article should help you work through this issue. You have already completed the leg work of finding out what the controller is, now you just have to modify the .OEM and you should be on your way.

    the diskpart scripts should be in x:\ldclient.  Just open it up in notepad and then go through the commands one at a time and see where it is erroring out on.  should point you further into what is going on...

    those files are tied to OSD when you choose a script, which you are not getting that far, so the commands in question are buried in your startnet.cmd

     

     

    I'm on 9.0 so it could be different, but worth a check.  On mine during winpe intialization, it calls diskpart /s diskpartcheck.txt (which is sitting in x:\ldclient)

    i opened that file and the only command it does is select disk 0, if that fails it gives you the error that you had stated

    looks like you are making progress...have you checked the logs and see where the job is halting at?  \\%core%\ldlog would be where they are.
