Topic: [IMPL] -- VEN_8086&DEV_1502 = Intel 82579LM -- Dell e6420

I love Dell...  With every single new product, even within the same family (eg, 6420 instead of 6410), they have to completely change out the ethernet chipset...  What a PIA...

Here we go again...

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&SUBSYS_04931028&REV_04


Trying to use BartPE.  Tried DP_LAN_wnt5_x86-32_1101.7z -- no such luck.  Any idea where I might find the drivers to suppor this adaptor?

How about Dell?

Update:  for those who might find this later...  I was able to get this to work, thanks for the tip -- last time I tried using stock drivers (for the 6400 and 6410), I failed, so I didn't really think to try that this time.

For this system, you can grab Intel_825xx-Gigabit-Platform_A00_R291627.exe, extract it, and copy the contents of the subfolder XP-x86 to pebuilder\drivers\Net\.  I have several other drivers in there as well as the latest LAN DP.

Hopefully this helps somebody.

This will be implemented in DriverPack LAN 11.08b
