NIC Driver Addition in Boot.WIM
Hope everyone is doing good and being safe!
Need someone’s experience in dealing with an issue where we had identified that a specific model needed a NIC driver to be included in the boot WIm as it was unable to retain the IP during the WINPE stage and also was unable to download the variable made us to download the entire winpe packages and integrating that in the boot image. Now we have run into confusion before using this boot image across the whole production and need someone’s experience in clearing this out:
can a boot image with WINPE driver interrogated for a specific model work absolutely fine with another standard model that doesn’t need it ?
What is the best way to identify which NIC is needed to be added for a specific model to avoid other unnecessary NIC inclusion in the boot wim?
Would there be any driver conflict that we should be wrrried for ?
if we include the entire pack for NIC from the vendor website into a boot wim would it cover all the models of that specific vendor?
Hope someone’s experience can me figuring this out :).
