Ghost Solution Suite with Lenovo X1 Carbon -- not able to load network driver
Okay, so I'll try to be detailed while being brief (if that is possible.)
I have a new Lenovo X1 Carbon that needs to be imaged using GSS 2.5.
The only ethernet connection on this machine is a USB-to-Ethernet dongle. The model is an Asix Ax88772b. I am able to PXE boot to WinPE, but there is not an IP Address when booted to WinPE. I'm assuming this is because WinPE does not have the correct driver.
I found this forum article: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/lenovo-x1-carbon-imaging-ds-71-ghost and tried downloading the attached driver. I tried downloading the Lenovo driver from their site. I tried exporting the driver from the copy of Windows 7 that came stock on the machine. I tried downloading Lenovo's SCCM driver, AND I tried downloading the XP, Vista, and 7 driver directly from Asix's site.
Whenever I try to import these into WinPE via the Ghost Boot Manager, it says "Failed to import driver (driver name). Failed to find any drivers to add."
I have successfully added drivers to the preboot images previously using these steps: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?pag...
I have also tried throwing the drivers from these sites onto a flash drive, PXE booted, and used the "drvload" command to test them. WinPE says they loaded successfully. However, I am still not able to obtain an IP address.
My brain hurts and I'm frustrated. Any help? Any at all? Because you would be my hero. I would yell your name from the rooftops.
