No matter what I do, WiFi drivers will never appear in the Advanced/Devices
tab of the Rescue Media Builder
. Also, they never appear nor are loaded in either the Win RE or Win PE 10 environments.
I included a number of screenshots showing that my two LAN drivers always load and work (Two LAN NICs. Why two drivers? ask Gigabyte). I do know it has once worked
on the same system (Win7 x64, Gigabyte GA-X99-UD5 Wifi board, agent Edition v7.2.4898
), but unfortunately I didn't take notes of how I made it work - something I usually do. At that time it was critical for me to have the WiFi working as the issue was precisely that both LAN interfaces were softwarewise dead. Restoring without WiFi was therefore impossible.
Based on this long, interesting thread
, I also tried to copy the drivers into C:\boot\macrium\WA10KDrivers\64Bit\Wifi
folders. They are detected by the Media Builder, but still never appear in the Drivers tab.C:\ProgramData\Macrium\RMBuilder\BuildDevices.log
also confirms that they are seen, but it wrongly claims:No matching devices in INF: c:\boot\macrium\wa10kdrivers\64bit\wifi\netwsw02.inf
Wrongly, because, see the second screenshot below, this is the driver that loads and works in Windows.
I added a bunch of screenshots to clarify. What should I do to get this work?
In windows, the drivers load and work no problem:
In Win RE or PE10 - I tried Win PE 5 also:
Initially installed drivers in X Drivers Ethernet: the two LAN drivers - the same as what is show in Windows.
From the recovery environment, the 3rd option under the Restore
menu, I try to install the driver from a USB key:
It all looks good, confirms no other drivers to install, and that the WiFi driver is ostensibly correctly installed
But no luck: it does not appear in the list of drivers and does not work:
