SCCM: WinPE NIC drivers for Dell E6400

by on Sep.29, 2008, under Microsoft, SCCM/SMS2003

The new Dell E6400 gives some troubles while trying to OSD it. The drivers provided by Dell does not work. You can import XP drivers but not Vista. SCCM WinPE is based on Vista so you’ll need Vista drivers. without drivers the system will boot to WinPE but then it will restart.

The correct drivers can be found on Intel website.
Download both 32 and 64 bit drivers.
Once downloaded extract PRO1000 folder from both files. I used WinRar for that.

Place these to folder somewhere where your SCCM server could access them and import them to SCCM. Yuo can read on importing drivers here. You don’t have to create driver package. The only thing you need is to add the drivers to Boot images and update distribution points.

First do the following:
a. Download and extract the drivers to a network share
b. Create a network share that will be used for drivers storage.(I’ve created this on one of the SCCM servers)

Once you have the thing above you can Open Configuration Manager Console
1. Go to Computer Management>Operating Systems Deployment>Drivers
2. Now you can right click on Drivers and choose import but I would recommend first to create some kind of folder structure(like model\device) as this will make things easier in the future. Once you have folders created right click on it and select Import.
