E7450 MDT/WDS build, NIC driver issue

Hi,

I just receive 2 new Dell E7450, was trying to build from MDT/WDS via PXE boot. And found out it has issue with the Intel NIC driver. I tried everything from the other post:

en.community.dell.com/.../19622333

www.dell.com/.../en

But still getting the same Wizard Error:

A connection to the deployment share (xxxx) could not be made.

The following networking device did not have a driver installed.

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_15A2&SUBSYS_062E1028&REV_03

From the imported driver (Version A05) on MDT's WinPE5.1 package, I can see PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_15A2&SUBSYS_062E1028 in "Intel Net E1D64x64.inf"

So I followed the Knowledge Base, import A05 CAB to WinPE 5.1, update the deployment share, and replace the image in WDS and restart WDS.

And I am still seeing the same error.

Any solution?

Thanks!

Hello,

I have had exactly the same problem with MDT/WDS and E5550 notebook.

This is the NIC x86 driver which is missing in your MDT.

Find it in the Intel web site, decompress and install it in your MDT, update, recreate an new starting image, and that's it!

RE: E7450 MDT/WDS build, NIC driver issue

Right I seem to have a similar problem to people using MDT/WDS deploying W10 to E5550 which uses the 'Intel(R) Ethernet Connection I218-LM' NIC

I have downloaded the drivers from Dell and also tried using the latest drivers from Intel and extracting the x64 from the NDIS63 Folder from the attached. Recreating the Boot Images each time before booting.

It PXE Boots to the Deployment downloads the WIM file the returns with a BSOD after displaying the MD Wallpaper for a few seconds.

SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (NDIS.SYS)

As it reboots straight away there is no Minidumps to intercept to get anymore information on this, installing windows 10 from USB and loading the driver after install works fine and gets an IP Address I just cannot PXE Boot deploy windows.

RE: E7450 MDT/WDS build, NIC driver issue

managed to resolve this in the end using this driver as part of the WinPE.wim

RE: E7450 MDT/WDS build, NIC driver issue

Hi,

I am having the same issue.

We have a load of Latitudes E5550 that I am trying to Image using PXE from SCCM. The E5550 PXE boots, and before it can load the task sequence you see the background image and then reboots. Looking at CMD and running ipconfig the laptop has no IP. I have loaded the Intel(R) Ethernet Connection I218-LM driver into the boot image and still no joy.

I have used the latest drivers on Dell’s website which is version 12.12.80.19 and also gone direct to Intel’s website and used their latest driver which is 12.13.17.4 both have been injected into the PXE image and tested but still imaging doesn’t work.

Any help much appreciated

So it appears that i had to use one set of Drivers for the I218-LM in the WinPE PXE Boot but then a different driver version for the actual OS Deployment, once i am back in the UK with access to these i will post the links for you to try.

That would be great, thank you Chris.

This is the driver I used from Intel direct:

RE: E7450 MDT/WDS build, NIC driver issue

Hello,

more and more problems with this couple MDT/Dell E5550...I found a solution who worked with few days ago:

- download your MDT PC image on the Dell as much as it possible or finalyse your PC manually

- help yourself to find the missing drivers with an utility like "Driver Genius" or similar

- export and save the reals drivers files (*.inf, *.sys) with an utility like Driver Backup!

- inject the saved drivers files in your MDT

Regards,

Ben.

RE: E7450 MDT/WDS build, NIC driver issue

I really need to PXE boot the E5550.

Reason being in SCCM, I have a standard task sequence from SCCM that I need to run on the E5550. The driver on the E5550 is Intel(R) Ethernet Connection I218-LM, but no matter what I download from Dell or Intel website it’s always I217-LM.

Well,

I do not know what does SCCM in this case, but try this on your laptop:

wmic computersystem get model

Then, compare the result with the path in MDT which must be exactly the same than your model.

Finally, update and build again the boot images (x86 and x64, even if you just use one of both).
