Hi Everyone!

I've tried to read all the posts regarding network card driver problems. I realized that many user faced the problem I've encountered. It's clear that somehow the driver of the network card has to be given to the project so that the scripts can find it.

I've downloaded Net Driver Pack which in my opinion contains Marvell Yukon driver, too. I just don't know the way I should add the diver to the nativeEX_barebone project. I've copied the files into target\nativeEx\i386\system32\drivers folder, but the ISO file that WB created didn't contain these files. So this is not the way I should do it...

So I would be grateful if someone could tell me exactly how to add driver files to the project. If it's neccessary I'm ready to add all the files of the Net Driver Pack to the project just tell me, how I should do it. If it's necessary I'll try again to create an ISO file with NativePe
project, although I was not able to boot with the ISO file that this project has created. (A blue screen appeared with error message.)
So please tell me what to do, I don't want to give it up...

Thank you in advance! :confused1:

Put the driver files (*.dll, *.sys, *.inf) in a folder (NetDrivers) and
put the path to that folder in PENetwork.Script box by browsing to it.

@warynski:
Maybe that's not all. Perhaps you need additionally HWPnP and InfCacheBuild.
(I think that Smiley publishes a solution soon)

Try using this script, it was the only way I could get my Win2K3 builds to use other network drivers.

It is a script for InfCacheBuild which helps integrate your added drivers into windows.

That must be an issue of your system.
I clicked and saw the script on my screen.
I'll PM it to you.

Maybe I'm revealing my ignorance asking the following question, but I don't know where to copy InfCacheBuild.script file.

I've tried to copy it to Projects\NativeEx_barebone folder and the network card driver files into Projects\NativeEx_barebone\Driver folder and run WinBulider.exe again. Unfortunatelly the iso file created in this way didn't contain the network card driver files...

So I have a simple and lame question: where should I copy InfCacheBuild.script and the network driver files that NetDriversPack contains?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Theoretically you can copy wherever you want.
But you have to watch one rule.
In the scripts tree, the order MUST be
  • Copy driver
  • InfCacheBuild
  • Make ISO
The order is defined by
  • [Main] Level inside the driver / InfCacheBuild script
  • Folder where the script is placed
I think it does not make much sence to give a tutorial here.
Following the two above list tabs, you should play with them and look for the result.

That's the best way to understand WinBuilder

Good luck!

Peter :confused1:
