We purchased a few DELL Optiplex 9020s that came with an Intel Ethernet Connection I217-LM ethernet controller, and I've been unable to find the correct WinPE x64 drivers for this adapter.
From the Download Center I found what I thought were the correct drivers. In the EXE, I found some WinPE drivers, but apparently these aren't it as I'm not able to connect to my network when I boot up using WinPE.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to get the correct drivers please?
I had same Problem with Dell Latitude E6540 and I think it's the same Driver needed in Opt9020. The Driver package from Dell has actually a Problem (in Version A01). So I've downloaded the Network Driver directly from here (Intel Download Center). Extracted, I added the Driver of the following Folder: .\\PROWinx64\PRO1000\Winx64\NDIS63.
Thank you very much.
Finally i got it working.
I tried to add the Drivers to an offline WinPE Image but it seems, sometimes not all files were copied to the Destination. I removed the faulty Driver and readded it, then all files were copied and the NIC was recognized by WinPE.
We recently purchased some Dell Optiplex XE2's and we're having this same issue. As soon as the machine boots into WinPE, it loses its IP address. Sadly, none of the drivers included seem to be working when I load them with drvload while in WinPE. Any additional help or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
We recently purchased HP Z230 workstation and have same issue. I217-LM drivers will not load into WinPE. Have tried adding all drivers from PRO1000\Winx64\NDIS62 but none work. Checked driver on the computer I'm trying to take the image from and it is using e1d62x64.inf. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
I had the same problem with laptop DELL latitude E7440.
This computer have a Intel Ethernet Connection I217-LM controler.
When boot on my USB SCCM 2012 media to install Windows 7 x64, I haven't IP address.
So has said Runner1979, I try to load this driver \Pro1000\Winx64\NDIS63\e1d63x64.inf, and now i have an IP address
Now I can add this driver in my SCCM boot image
Amazingly not one single person has mentioned the version of WinPE they are using! Is the original thread referring to the problematic NDIS61 drivers in WinPE 2.1 or some other version? I'd like to help in testing a solution to the problem if it's the same one I've experienced but not one person can contribute with any certainty without details of the real issue here.
It might be just that since it's tagged with sccm2012 that a certain version of WinPE is implied so I apologise if I'm incorrect! For an observer with other products that use WinPE and this network chipset though it would be useful to specify the exact setup for them to assist.
I am having a similar issue. I have a Dell E6540 with the I27-LM and I am using Ghost Console. I have loaded the driver (version 19) from \\PROWin32\PRO1000\Win32\NDIS62 into my WinPE folder, but upon pulling the original stock image from the Dell I am getting a 127.0.0.1 IP address. I have seen this before with Ghost due to a driver that is not working. Ghost only likes Vista x86 drivers; however the I27-LM does not have a Vista driver. Any Ideas? I am trying other versions of this Intel driver (18.7 and 18.6) but it seriously takes 10 minutes to load each driver into Ghost, so I will be around.
