Dell GX270 Driver for Windows PE / Longhorn
Posted on 2010-08-31
I am having a problem deploying Windows XP to a Dell GX270 using Windows Deployment Services. The server we use works fine deploying to our Dell Optiplex 780 pcs. I have a .wim with the OS image, and I also have a custom boot.wim file( I got the oringal boot.wim off of the Server 2008 R2). When I PXE boot the machine, I get the F12 prompt, then when Windows PE boots I get the following error.
"WdsClient: An error occurred while starting networking: there was a failure while installing the network card driver for your machine. Please contact your Administrator."
I have no problem adding drivers to images, but I cannot seem to find the proper driver for the GX270, I'm also not sure which OS version i should use for Windows PE. I tried using 2k and XP drivers from dells website, and I also tried the 2k/XP/Vista/Server 2008 drivers, from the intel website. When i added the Optiplex 780, I added the Windows XP drivers, and it worked great.
Device Manager on the GX207 identifies the NIC as a Intel Pro 1000 MT.
Has anyone else ran into this issue?
