Adding the NIC driver

Not sure what I am doing wrong, but once I have booted to WinPE I run the 'ipconfig /all' command to see if I have an IP address - nope.
I used the 'peimg' command to install the driver

http://www.kerrycorcoran.com/winpe/winpe_config.pdf - I documented my process.

Any ideas what I am missing or doing wrong?

If you need to add drivers for a new network card or some other device, you can do so by downloading and extracting the Vista 32-bit driver, and add it to the build using the peimg.exe command . Information on how to use peimg.exe to add drivers and packages can be found here.

For example, the Intel NIC driver for the Optiplex 755 extracts to C:\dell\drivers\R162323\Vista32. To add the driver to the build, you would type: "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\peimg.exe" /inf=C:\dell\drivers\R162323\Vista32\*.inf C:\winpe\mount

Note that peimg.exe can be launched from the PETools command prompt without typing the path to the executable, only the executable name.

Thanks for the help! Was able to get it working. I was under the impression I just needed to 'copy' the files. Didn't realize 'peimg' installed the files. All is working.

Thanks again.
