BartPE v3.1.10a - "unable to install network adapters"

8 posts in this topic

Hello all. This is my first post on the forum & first foray into the world of WinPE/BartPE. I am trying to utilize the BartPE Ghost32 plug-in as an alternative to .dos boot disks. I followed all the guides I could find & built a BartPE disk using PE Builder 3.1.10a. After boot to PE, I attempt to start network support. I choose a static network profile, then receive the message, "Registering network components...", followed by "Installing network adapters..." & finally receive an error message, "Unable to install network adapters."

I want to install two network drivers on the disk -- Broadcom 57xx & Intel Gigabit, so I created the following directories:

C:\pebuilder3110a\drivers\Net\Broadcom with the contents:

b57win32.cat

b57win32.inf

b57xp32.sys

C:\pebuilder3110a\drivers\Net\Intel with the contents:

e1e5231.cat

e1e5231.din

e1e5231.inf

e1e5231.sys

e1000msg.dll

e1000325.cat

e1000325.din

e1000325.inf

e1000325.sys

etco32.dll

intelnic.dll

nicco.32.dll

nicin32.dll

prounstl.exe

Any help or guidance would be much appreciated.

Hello

Welcome to msfn ! I hope you'll find answers.

So about this problem, here some questions

Which os do you use ? XP or 2003 ?

The network drivers are they for XP or 2003 ? Try to get them update going to a drivers website.

First see, it seem you put them into the right directories.

Hello

Yes drivers pack are useful if you have to use bart cd on several configuration. If you have only one or two even three networds cards, manually integration of drivers is better, and save space !

Even you have one hundred computers, there are few chances that you have one hundred different network cards !

Yeah, but the advantage here is that they have been tested and are hopefully working

I'm using XP Pro & the drivers were downloaded as a plug-in from another PE support forum page. I'll try compiling the drivers from the manufacturers website.

Thanks!

I pulled the drivers off of the PC manufacturer's driver disk & now BartPE recognizes & installs the network adapters.

Thanks to all that replied!!!
