after deploying image - no network driver


  • hi all,

    on some machines (mainly hp z workstations) after i deploy a syspreped image of windows 10, i need to install the built in intel driver, this is weird as i can pxe boot into the fog server to deploy the image

    i get around installing the intel driver by a usb ethernet adpater as that doesnt require any drivers

    thanks,
    rob

    @robertkwild You kind of have two different OS’ and 3 different environments here.

    The PXE booting bit of FOG is all linux, which if you are using the latest 5.15.x kernel has all of the common drivers built in to the OS.

    After sysprep but before the first reboot the target computer is running WinPE. WinPE has its own driver requirements. After the first reboot Windows is running in native mode and has its own driver requirements.

    So you can either preload the drivers into your golden image before you sysprep it or configure a post install script to drop the drivers onto the target computer after the image has been pushed.
