Symantec Ghost 11 / WinPE Drivers for Intel Pro 1000 (82579) NIC in new Lenovo T420s
Posted on 2011-05-02
I have a new Lenovo T420s with an Intel Pro1000 NIC that I would like to be able to back up across my network using a USB based Ghost 11.5 boot disk. This method works fine for other laptops I manage but the problem that I'm running into with this one is that when I boot using the Ghost USB boot disk, the network card in this Lenovo is not being recognized by Ghost/WinPE and does not get an IP address on the network. The drivers for the Intel Pro1000 network card are not included in the default Ghost/WinPE build so I tried downloading the drivers from Intel's website and including them in my Ghost boot disks, but that still does not work.
Has anyone out there been able to make this work with this NIC or have any suggestions on how I can get this NIC recognized by Ghost? Thanks!!
