Has anyone been able to get this driver working in the actual OS after deployment? I had no issues getting it working for WinPE, but for some reason it will NOT install after the OS has been deployed. So the steps ...
1.) Tried multiple drivers, the system is a HP 2540p so tried both HP and Intel drivers.
2.) Every set of drivers I have used, that has not worked during the driver injection portion, works fine AFTER the OS is deployed. I can go to Device Manager, poit to any of the sets of drivers I have used and they all install perfectly. Just can't get the dang things to work before, and that is messing up my domain joining, agent install, etc.
I have other Intel drivers working fine on other HP systems, so it just seems to be this set of drivers on this system.
Hello Brendan, WinPE version 2? If this is the case, NIC for Vista should be able to resolve your issue. Re-creation of boot.wim is necessary and re-deploy it down to PXE Rep that act as TFTP. Thank you.
Why would I need to use the Vista drivers? The WinPE boot portion works with no issues. Its not until the OS loads that the driver for Win7 does not seem to work. The WinPE NIC drivers load and work without an issue.
Very similar, see my screen shot.
I actually think I have a workaround for this, for some reason the drivers work if I select the make and model instead of using autodetect. The driver name is right everywhere I check it, but it won't autodetect.
Just to clarify, when you pick auto detect for HII, it will not download the driver? But when you specify the model then it would download the driver during HII?
You might want to un associate the driver with the model in the Manage Manufacture and reassociate it again. Then try to run the hiiclient.exe manually on the laptop and see if it will download the drivers.
When I pick autodetect the drivers appear to download correctly, I don't see any errors on the screen that shows all the drivers being downloaded, seems to all go fine.
However for whatever reason, with autodetect the drivers don't appear to work in Win7 and when I manual set the make and model of the 2540p they work just fine. I will try and re-associate the drivers and see if running hiiclient manually does for me.
