    i218-LM driver issue in MDT and WinPE deployment




      I'm trying to deploy laptop with Intel i218-LM network adapter and having issues while WinPE tries to connect to network device.


      Error message while WinPE: A connection to the deployment share could not be made. The following networking device did not have a driver installed.

      PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_15A2&SUBSYS_833810F7&REV_03 -> Intel i218-LM


      We are using Microsoft MDT with WinPE 4.0. I have injected latest drivers for the device from both manufacturer site as well as from Intel's to MDT selection profile.

      Drivers: Intel® Download Center

      Also I have updated deployment share and regenerated boot images.


      Issue seems to be that there is no this SUBSYS_833810F7 mentioned in neither of the .inf files (Intel version: e1d6432.inf). Only the following devices and appendixes are mentioned:





      With OEM image Windows seems to handle the device without SUBSYS_833810F7, but only with the first part PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_15A2. This one can be found in the driver files, but WinPE doesn't seem to accept it?


      Where I can find the correct WinPE driver to use or is there something else I could try?


      Kind regards
