Deploy Anywhere can't see Wireless drivers

Created: 19 Dec 2013 | 3 comments

Hey Forums.

I have been using GSS 2.5 with relatively greate success but there is one thing I am stuck on and need alittle help. I have a bunch of Windows 7 Pro 64-bit laptops that all share the same issue. When Deploy Anywhere is running the eval switch it detects a missing driver for the Wireless NIC. I understand (I think) that DA and WinPE don't support wireless NICs which is fine but is there any way to force eploy Anywhere to continue without being halted by this? I have seen the "solution" of disabling the wireless NIC via BIOS and this works but it is a bit of a pain. Is there any other method to this madness or am I stuck with the BIOS method?

Also if needed the error that is being thrown during the eval step is:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Missing driver detected:

type = NETWORK DRIVER

PCI ID = PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0085&SUBSYS_13118086&REV_34

Desc = @system32\drivers\pci.sys,#640;Network Controller

Warning

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have tried to add the drivers from HP's website (laptop manufacturer) as well as Intel's website (manufacturer of Centrino Advanced-N 6205 wireless NIC in question). I have also tried pulling the drivers directly off of the restore disk that came with the laptop. These drivers matched the one I downloaded from each site.

Thanks in advance,

Josh

Hi Josh,

Only WINPE doesn't support wireless adapter,as there is no mechanism to connect to the wireless network.DA does support wireless driver injection.If you are sure that you had added the correct driver and if still DA reports the drivers are missing,it could be a known bug .Try the 2605 patch update to resolve the issue.

Thank you Maneesh I was just reading in to the fact that DA is still able to use the drivers for retargeting. Can you point me in the direction of aquiring the 2605 patch?
