The PENetwork ( V0.58.B8 ) tool cannot detect my Intel 82566DC Gigabit ethernet card. To be sure of the network functionality of my Gena build,  I could get working the monolithic Broadcom LAN driver on a IBM server. I event tested the Intel driver offered by driverpacks.net The interesting point is that DRVIMPE.EXE can load the Intel driver but PENetwork fails.

Hi Lancelot,

Thanks for the update, I will try it tomorrow at work.

I think I found what's causing the problem : deleting the INFCACHE.1file in the X:\I386\Inf folder solved the problem. Penetwork detected the Intel Ethernet card

Hi Lancelot,

I tried the updated script. Booting from the new Gena build, I got the error message :

Quote
Autoit error
Line1 - Error : Variable used without being declared

My solution was to restore the original Penetwork script and disable the option InfCacheBuild in the Post Processing Tools section.

Hi Vortex,

http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=442.0
I will ask Chris when he comes back  :wink:


Thanks for the feedback  :smile: :smile:,
I will revert back penetwork from server
 and disable infcache build as default (with a warning),
  some time tonight (or tomorrow)

attached v10 plugin for future inspection

There is indeed a concern on version 0.59.Beta1 (Variable used without being declared)
Pending correction by Holger, if someone wants to inform him, I made a mod on the AutoIt3 sourcecode.

I defined Dim $bPrevStartup = False before testing if Profile editor is used "If $bUseEditor Then ... Dim ..."
It seems to work well like that but it is better to wait for a better Holger's solution
and to use the version 0.58.2 final  for now.

For testing, here is the plugin based on the one above with just the modified program attached.
* PENetworkGena59beta.7z (2517 kB - downloaded 108 times.)

and the autoit3 sourcecode modified, the original is on the Holger's website http://holger.orgfree.com/
* PENetwork.au3.7z (124.26 kB - downloaded 93 times.)

probably better for Gena, if you wish.
Here is the same plugin with version 0.58.2 final in place of the v0.58.B8.

* PENetworkGena.7z (2463.09 kB - downloaded 107 times.)

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the update, 0.58.2 works nicely,
but it reproduce old bug of 0.56 that breaks .inf files ( Process-Infs )
I followed your plugin by using v0.58 B8 to process .inf files ,
 as a precaution also Process-Drivers :thumbsup:

+ maybe this is also related to Win7PE SE - VirtualBox Network not working topic http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=1158

now on Gena server  :wink:  :thumbsup:

See You

Hello Lancelot,

maybe you can give me more details about:
"but it reproduce old bug of 0.56 that breaks .inf files ( Process-Infs )".

Ok, the latest tests/doings are long ago for a XP based PE.
Maybe I should check also these agains (Gena/LiveXP)...
The 0.59Beta1 problem I already solved in a newer version Beta2 but is not published yet cause there are some small things not finished.

Thanks and greets :)
Holger

Hi Holger,

for quick tests, use Gena Appetizer
http://gena.cwcodes.net/Compressed/index.php
and add "Penetwork Gena" plugin  :thumbsup:



adding PENetwork Gena v10 on above reply 6 ChrisR plugin, which has  0.58.2 final breaks things,
testing is easy, here is 2 corrupted files
https://www.dropbox.com/s/iej4a4a8jtkua64/netinf.7z?dl=0


To fix,
I updated ChrisR plugin to PENetwork Gena v11 on server, by using 0.58 B8 to process inf files (/inipatch)
 (to be safe side, I also used 0.58 B8  on /drvcopy )
http://gena.cwcodes.net/projectindex.php
http://gena.cwcodes.net/Projects/Gena/Components/Core/1%20System/Network/PENetworkGena.script




I am pretty sure same problem also on SE plugin,
http://win81se.cwcodes.net/projectindex.php
http://win81se.cwcodes.net/Projects/Win8.1SE/Components/penetwork.script
since there is another report
http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=1158
I tried to explain at reply 10 there


I hope above helps  :thumbsup:

Thanks for infos.
I found the bug in the patching routine.
Until now I thought the inf-files were unicode.
But it can ANSI or unicode files.
I did some tests and now it is ok again and I will implement this in the next beta2.

Greets :-)

Hi Holger, another one about PENetwork.  :grin:

You run wpeinit.exe on WinPE2.0 and later, but this seems to be a bit overkill.
wpeinit will do many thing like scanning for removable drives.
On some machines this takes over 15 seconds.

But there is another command that should be more suited: Wpeutil InitializeNetwork

Hi Holdger,

Welcome  :welcome:

I am glad this helps  :thumbsup:






I have a mini requests:

Following history info:
Changed: DrvCopy params, OS is ignored by default and used only if one of the CMD parameters is XP, /XP, 2003, /2003, Vista, /Vista, Win7, /Win7, Win8, /Win8

+ can you change 2003 to W2003  :wink:

++++
Since 2003x64 and XPx64 use same set of drivers  :wink:
Can we have additional DrvCopy params available:

XPx86
W2003x86
NT5x64

Something we always deal with on Gena  :wink:

See You
:turtle:
