Windows Vista network driver Intel 825

I've been trying to locate the Windows vista driver for Ghost Console.

I have two systems that I think they both use the same driver.

System 1:
Intel 82579LM
Hardware ID 8086

System 2:
Intel 82578DM
Hardware ID 8086

The ghost boot cast has to use the Windows Vista driver so if you could point me to the actual driver that would be great.

Are you booting the machines with a WinPE boot disk? If so, you will need to add the NIC driver into the WinPE boot disk. While creating the PE disk you have an option to load the driver. I also think you have the option to load the driver during bootup, depending on your Version of Ghost.

The only driver is the one for that NIC, which can be obtained from the manufacturer's website.

The link for the driver goes directly to the Vista version and two are listed.

Yes, it's WinPE. I know how to re-package WinPE just having a hard time finding these drivers. I might just end up buying StarTech ethernet controllers but if I can re-use hardware that is great as well. I installed a StarTech ethernet card in another PC and it works fine with Ghost.

The link i provided goes right to the drivers for the card you mentioned. You can get them there and then add them to your WinPE dsk.

Were the drivers not there for you? Were they the incorrect ones?
