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.

You could try using a driverpack instead from www.ubcd4win.com

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!

You can try infcachebuild tool

http://heanet.dl.sou...cheBuild-1.8.7z

.Its rebuilding inf folder.And Files must be placed inf files to inf folder,sys files to system32\drivers folder,all other files to system32 folder.
I have bartpe with more than 130 lan-wan driver,networking always working.

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

Thanks to all that replied!!!
