Macrium Reflect Server Edition will not allow us to add a non virtual network driver to rescue cd.

We have Macrium Reflect Server Edition installed on a Windows 2012 R2 server on Vmware and it will not allow us to install a non Vmware virtual network driver when creating a rescue CD. We think because the server is virtual it is only allowing us to us to install a Vmware vitural network card drivers like VMXNET 3 etc. We are trying to add a driver for a Dell Optiplex 7040.
Thanks

Are you trying to install the driver in the OS, when the VM is running ?

So the Windows 2012 R2 server on Vmware has the Macrium Reflect Server Edition installed on it. And yes we are trying to install the driver onto the rescue cd that is built from the VM.

We are trying to install the network driver from a Optiplex 7040. We will use the .wim file from the .iso for a pxeboot environment in Windows Deployment Services. Thanks

do you have the original network drivers, e.g. the INF files ?

what error message do you get, you should be able to add any network drivers.

It says no driver found try a different folder. So we think it is looking for a virtual network driver and not the Optiplex 7040 network card driver .
