Title: Wireless not supported in latest version of Win7PESE?
Post by: Cubeburner on January 09, 2017, 07:05:14 PM
Greetings,

Is there a way to enable support for wireless for Win7PESE? I have a WLAN card in a old rig of mine that I want to use for some experiments and when the WiFi drivers attempt to load through HWPnP, the error returned from Windows Device Manager is as follows:

This device cannot start. An error occurred during setup of the device.
The system cannot find the file specified.

With that said, LAN drivers and everything else seem to be happily installed. It's just the wireless subsystem that seems to be missing, or some files are missing from Win7PESE itself.

Cheers!

I seem to have the same problems with wireless network.
I am using the latest PeNetwork by ChrisR
Code: [Select]
History050=ChrisR - Win7pese shares the same plugin now - Date:2017.01.14

I don't know if this log has anything to do with it winpeshl.log
Code: [Select]
Info      Windows PE Shell beginning execution
Info      Beginning PNP initialization.
Info      Winpeshl.ini detected.
Info      Succeeded launching (null) [MountPEmedia.exe]
Warning   Failed to launch (null) [hide /NOCONSOLE /SILENT /WAIT start.cmd] [0x80070002]
Info      Succeeded launching (null) [Shortcuts.exe -f X:\Windows\System32\Win7PE.cfg]

Info      Succeeded launching (null) [Pecmd.exe Main X:\Windows\System32\Pecmd.ini]
Info      PNP initialization succeeded.
Info      PNP Initialization thread terminating.

This is the error messages that received when PE start up.
[attach=1]
[attach=2]
Hope any of the attachments help.

I used this PeNetwork before and it seems to load extra info, which lets
the wireless network work.

Check if you have
Win7PESE\Components\"Network" plugin ?
Code: [Select]
History001=ChrisR - Split Network and the Penetwork shared with other SE project - Date:2016.11.18

If you do not have
Win7PESE\Components\"Network" plugin
Use
Utils\Update Win7PESE --> "Update" button to update your project....

Lancelot thank you for the update.
Found all the information at

Win7PESE\Components\"Network" plugin

Tried to do the normal Download button before,
but didn't seem to pickup the Network plugin.
It worked like a champ!!!     :thumbsup:

I also added some more driver to NET drivers for Win7PE.
Followed previous Net drivers plugin.
Shared the link below.  It seems to get me by, but know
ChrisR could make it more complete for Win7PESE.

Clear instruction to update project is always same.

You fail yourself and workaround yourself....

 First thing to do,

Tool created more than 7 years ago to avoid such troubles and works perfect since than...

Such trouble happens very mostly with very old users like you,
 or a newbie accident rarely.
  Maybe we should cut down other ways, or maybe we will ..........

So I advice you to change bad habits, which cause time for you and for me.
