Winpe NIC drivers for VMware Lab Manager
Hi, does anyone know what drivers will work with Winpe in VMWare Lab Manger? The drivers that i have and work with VMWare Server on desktop do not work with VMWare Lab Manger. In Lab Manager the guest Winpe never finds a NIC, and bombs out. Anyone?

C:\program files\vmware tool\drivers site database-> computer management->operating system deployment->drivers->right click and choose "import"->address the network driver folder where you havve just copied to. 2. Add imported driver to boot images. site database-> computer management->operating system deployment->drivers-> right click on the driver->add or remove driver to boot image->tick both boot image x64 and x86, also tick "update distribution points when finished 3. clear last PXE advertisement go to the collection->right click on the computer->choose "clear last pxe advertisement then re-advertise the task sequence to the collection To fix VMware network adapter missing problem: add this line to the vmx file: ethernet0.VirtualDev = "e1000" It will give the virtual machine a standard network card.
