Network driver issue.

Recommended Posts



I have recently purchased four Lenovo X250 laptops. Out of the box they work fine.

But as soon as i want to deploy Windows 7 Pro on them its goes sour.


I'm using SCCM 2012 R2, so with WinPE v5.

I have downloaded the SCCM package from the Lenovo site: http://support.lenovo.com/nl/nl/downloads/ds102120

The i have downloaded the WinPE package: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds102312


Then i imported the SCCM drivers into SCCM via the wizard. Did the same for the WinPE drivers.

Created 2 separate driver packages to be sure there are no mix ups and to easily see which one i need for the boot image.

After that i saw that the name of the driver is not correct according the name of the network interface on the X250. The driver says its a i217-lm but the already installed Windows says its the i218-lm version.

I looked at the driver specifics and found that the i217-lm driver i have downloaded also works on the i218-lm.


So i hopefully boot a new laptop en hit F12 and select the network interface for booting. The WIM file is being download. So far so good.

But then it stops and reboots....

After a couple of new attemps i hit F8 to get a command prompt and see what the logfiles have to say. PxeGetPxeData failed with 0x80004005

Allright, no network connection, now that's weird. Because i added the driver that i downloaded from the Lenovo site.

When i try to initiate the driver in the command prompt with drvload e1d64x64.inf and then do an ipconfig /all i get an ip address and all.


I'm stuck at this for a couple of days now and i can't get my head around it.

It is very possible that 'm doing something wrong because its my first time troubleshooting SCCM 2012.


I hope someone can help me with this. :)

You need to edit the e1d64x64.inf file (DriverVer = 09/29/2014, from the PE package and delete everything in the [ControlFlags] section. After that you will be able to import the driver correctly to the SCCM database and to inject it to your boot image.

I've just had this exact problem (although with a Dell E7250).


Are you happy that the drivers imported without error?


I had to apply a hotfix to my 2008 R2 based server: (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2837108 found via https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3025419).


After this, e1d64x64.inf imported correctly and the computer picked up an IP address in WinPE as expected.
