:P Everybody :P
Please post here all network cards you want to be included in "Default NIC support" - small set of drivers for the most popular network cards.
Limitation: drivers should be included into XP distribution of free for re-distribution.
It would be nice if you could just specify just the name of the INF-file :P
:P

I used the Drivers Script from Smiley but I dont see any embeded files or a INF-file so I dont know what the INF-file is.

Actually, you guys listed the three most popular ones I think. And probably the ones that would need to be in there. Realtek had such cheap (but good) ethernet cards back in the day that everyone had a realtek network card (or compatible) and the VIA network drivers are good to have for anyone using AMD motherboards and the Intel network drivers should be universal for those Motherboards as well as most corporate PCs.

Maybe someone should check on the most common Dell network driver as well.

Lastly, I don't think the number of drivers should be all that much of an issue, just have two scripts, the "1 meg" script that only adds a meg to the install and the "10 meg" script that adds a lot more network drivers at the expense of space.

Originally, what got me into modpe was the space savings, but now that we're starting to add things back in, it's good to be comprehensive, especially since people keep showing up here expecting a replacement for BartPE.

I agree on "minimal"(1mb) / "most popular" (10mb) sets of nic drivers.
Though, in the future it may be 3rd script with "all nic drivers" that would allow seclection by "family" or something like that.
:P
Alexei
PS
I'll wait a bit more, then I'll make those (1/10 mb) scripts :P

@curare
Do you have direct download links?
The site is rather tricky. Unfortuntely, I can't allow execution of encripted java script on my PC.
So, the only way I see right now is to create virtual pc designated to this download or install NT on real PC, make download, shutdown, copy necessary files under PE, format HD :P
I'll do it eventually, but to right now :P

Hi all :) ,

Yes I have had problems with detection of my NIC driver from within Winbuilder [074]

The name of the NIC card is:

Via Rhine III Ethernet Adapter

The Inf file is:

Oem13.inf

The other files connected with this network card are:-
(edited to match posting as per Galapo)

difxapi.dll
FETND5BV.sys
FETNDIS.inf
netvt.cat
vuins32.dll

I used a "freeware" "Portable" (runs off a USB stick with little or no registry intergration) program called DriverBackup vers 1.0.2 if you go to:

List>Options (you will then be given the option to)

1) List all Drivers
2) List other providers' drivers
3) List Microsoft drivers

You then have the option to back these up in a nominated backup file depending on the 1,2 & 3 options above. By the way I have no affiliation to the program developer I just find it a useful backup util?

Here is a link if anyone is interested?

Mucho Regards :( ,

Hi ispy,

These are the files for your card:

difxapi.dll
FETND5BV.sys
FETNDIS.inf
netvt.cat
vuins32.dll

I've attached a script for your card. Place it in the 'network' folder under 'drivers' and see if it works for you (I am unable to test this myself as I have a Broadcom card).

Regards,
Galapo.

EDIT: see here now for the script: http://www.boot-land...?...ost&p=30050

I'm not sure whether the CAT is really necessary.

@ispy:
When Galapo's driver script has success, please open the script and comment the line where it is copied. Rebuild and post whether it is still working or not.

Thanks

Peter

yes, I'm not sure if it is either. But it is there in case it is and can be commented out easily enough if it isn't.

OOp's sorry Guys missed this one :)

Wow! Many thanks for the script Galapo I will indeed try it out & get back to you know the result.

I will edit my previous post to reflect Galapo's nic driver fileset to avoid any confusion

I'm also going to condense the amount of program scripts within Winbuilder (As Peter Suggested) to reduce the size of the .iso & hopefully reduce the error messages in the log.html. The reasoning being the less I load the less chance there is of it going wrong - Good TIP Psc.

Do you think it would be prudent to cross reference your script & observations with a link (Or even post it in the Winbuilder with the "Frustration no Network Detected" posting) so that anyone visiting here or there for that matter could have access to both the background info & your script (that is in the context of Via Rhine III fast ethernet adapter driver that is)?

The only reason I am proposing this is that Jaclaz (& he has got a point) is keen on our discussions being topic orientated, easily traceable & it may prove helpful to others (Just an idea)?

Regards & Best wishes,

ispy :(

That was the test I asked ispy to do (that I get true knowledge about necessary or not)

Hi all, :)

I have been fiddling about with Galapo's Via Rhine Script & have posted the results in the "Frustration No network card detected", Winbuilder section, why?

I am not overally confident I should be posting the results here, bearing in mind the topic title:

http://www.boot-land...?...=3912&st=30

Much regards,

ispy :(
