Topic: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

Newest batch of Dell laptops (Latitude E6500, Precision M4500 specifically) utilize this new Intel chip.  Specifically I want to get this working in BartPE / WinPE-32, but follows the hardware ID information from a Win-7 box using the same chip:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_10EA&SUBSYS_040C1028&REV_05
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_10EA&SUBSYS_040C1028
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_10EA&CC_020000
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_10EA&CC_0200

Any workarounds would be much appreciated, hitting a brick-wall trying to get this going...

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

So you've already tried the release DriverPack LAN 10.05 and it's not working for you?
Only reason I ask is because it already contains the latest drivers for that HWID.

You could try this resource: http://www.intel.com/products/ethernet/ … amp;s3=all
But from what I understand there's no PE drivers for that device yet.

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

Actually, you could try extracting the C:\D\L\I\RIS_INF\e1k5132.zip .inf and overwrite the standard .inf.  The RIS driver may work better in your PE environment.
Also, that .inf is unchanged in the newest 15.3 Intel driver set (unreleased).

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

I have the most recent driverpacks, LAN 10.05, no dice.  It does see the Intel wi-fi card, but BartPE doesn't let me set wireless params such as SSID, WPA auth, etc, so that doesn't help.  Any diag info I can send you?

As far as the INF, I found the one to extract, but, being a noob, don't know where to copy it as the 'standard INF'.  Can you provide a bit more info?

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

Not to be a pest, but any update to this?

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

You did realize that there are no WLAN drivers in the LAN pack...right? wink

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

Yes, correct, affirmative...  I'm not trying to use WLAN (although the WLAN pack does support the on-board controller, its just that bartpe seems to lack the ability to manage it).  I'm trying to get the gig-E ethernet working, which is the 82577LM controller.

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

Sorry, I misread your post.  Did you try extracting the .inf from the PE folder and overwriting the standard .inf in C:\D\L\I\e1k5132.inf

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

I extracted the .inf from the ZIP you specified, I'm not sure what to do with it...  Can you provide more specific instructions?  I don't normally consider myself a NOOB, but when it comes to Win-PE, I don't have a lot of experience, I just click and giggle.  :-)

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

Extract DriverPack LAN 10.05.1 to another folder.  Copy the .inf from C:\D\L\I\RIS_INF\e1k5132.zip  to C:\D\L\I\ and overwrite the original .inf.
Use 7zip to add the "D" folder and the .ini to a new archive and rename it DP_LAN_wnt5_x86-32_100601.7z, copy this archive back to where your other DriverPacks are in the DriverPacks BASE folders.
Use DriverPacks BASE to recreate the BartPE plugin then rebuild your BartPE disc (UBCD4Win?)

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

I noticed that a new LAN pack was released, so I tried using that (stock)...  No change.

extracted DP_LAN_wnt5_x86-32_10051.7z to a temporary folder.  I copied the .inf from <tempfolder>\D\L\I\RIS\e1k5132.zip\e1k5132.inf (NOTE change in path, you said RIS_INF but all I found was RIS) to <tempfolder>\D\L\I\e1k5132.inf, overwriting the one that was there before.  Created new DP_LAN_wnt5_x86-32_100601.7z containing the modified D\ and DriverPack_LAN_wnt5_x86-32.ini, and moved that into place alongside the old.  DPs_BASE UpdateChecker says "Where did you get that?" (hahah, nice touch).  slipstream'd, and re-built BartPE, no errors reported.

No love, BartPE reports "Unable to install network adaptors".

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

OK, thanks for reporting.
Sorry, but you're out of luck for PE drivers then.

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

@msturtz
Does your BartPE contain files e1k5132.inf and

[winxp.CopyFiles]
e1k5132.sys,,,2

[CoInstaller_CopyFiles]
NicCo2.dll,,,           0x00000010 ;don't overwrite
NicInstK.dll
e1kmsg.dll

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

@mr_smartepants -- Thanks anyway, I'll stay sub'd to this thread in case something else comes up or there's an update...

Hi cdob -- where would those file(s) be in BartPE?

I was going to try turning off the DP plugin, and extracting the newest Intel drivers in drivers\Net -- I know I did that before, and it didn't help.

At this point I have to pull the drive and image it from another system, I can't wait any longer, d'oh...

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

Interestingly, the Precision M6500, which is in the same family as the M4500, has a Broadcom 57xx ethernet chip, which works great using the current LAN DP, whereas the M4500 that I'm having problems with (and a number of other newly released notebooks) has the Intel 82577LM that I haven't been able to make work...

Just thought I'd share...

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

OK. I'm adding the Dell drivers to the new DriverPack LAN 1007 I'm working on now.  Dell adds a few specific HWIDs (including yours).  These drivers are designed for normal XP-installs, so it's possible that they will still fail in a PE or RIS environment.
Stand by for a test pack...

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

Link to DriverPack LAN 1007r1 test pack: Link removed
Please test and report back as soon as possible.  Thank you.

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

I'm pulling this down now...  The M4500 in question is on asignment at the moment, and won't be back to me until Thursday, I'll test it out then.

Thank you very much...

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

I sto...  Borrowed a Latitude E6410 (from a company exec, no less), which has exactly the same Intel 82577LM ethernet chip (same exact hardware ID's from the device manager, all 4 lines, as the Precision M4500 that I don't have in front of me but which prompted me to start this thread).

It doesn't work with BartPE, same error, "Unable to install network adaptors".

I'm guessing Intel simply hasn't released an update that provides the WinPE drivers for this chip?  Why exactly does PE use different drivers anyway, that makes no sense to me, a linux guy...  :-p

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

It's alright.  PE confuses me sometimes too.
I know what the problem is. 
When I added the Dell driver, I forgot to change the name of the .inf.  PE will only grab the first file of a group of same-name files. 
The rest of the files are the same version that's in \I\.  So I could save some space and just copy over the Dell .inf file to \I\ but we'll need to make sure it works first. wink
I'll upload 1007r2 in a short while.
Try this: link removed
It's always possible that this chip just may not have PE compatible drivers out there.

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

Still doesn't work, "Unable to install network adaptors".

Hopefully this chip will be better supported by Intel in the near future...  In the meantime, I guess my only option is disabling the on-board NIC and trying a PC-Card NIC -- I tried USB previously, and can't get that to work with BartPE either...  WI-FI works, but BartPE doesn't have wifi management, it doesn't seem like...  Failing that, its back to pulling the drive and imaging it from another machine.

Thanks very much for trying...

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

Hello, sorry to butt in here but I have the same problem.  BartPE is reporting 0 network adapters found.   I have a HP EliteBook 8540p, which uses the Intel 82577LM network adapter.  I have the latest driverpack 10.07, but still no luck.

Re: [REQ] Intel 82577LM

I still haven't had any luck with the Driverpacks on this, although I haven't tried the 10.07...  I added the Intel XP driver in in pebuilder\drivers\net -- and then went back to the prior 10.05 (current at the time, vs. the pre-release from @mr_smartepants listed above).  It works on the Latitude E6410 (Intel 82577LM), but I'm at a loss to explain how or why (and I was *sure* I tested it this way before, when i was was working on the Precision M4500, also an Intel 82577LM, which prompted my initial post).

Give that a try and see if it works...
