HP NC551 network adapter does not have a WinPE 3.0 x86 compatible driver ?

Marc had a customer question regarding the NC551 adapter:

 

********************************

 

A customer tried to deploy BL465c over SCCM OS Deployment

According to the “ Release Notes for HP ProLiant Server OS Deployment for Configuration Manager 2007 (Version: 1.40) :

“Deploying Windows 2003 x86 or Windows 2008 x86 to ProLiant BL465c G7 or ProLiant BL685c G7 fails  The HP NC551 network adapter does not have a WinPE 3.0 x86 compatible driver. Install a different, supported mezzanine network adapter, set it as the PXE NIC, and then retry the deployment”

Tobias had good info for Marc:

Hi Marc,

 

You can find the appropriate WinPE drivers for the BE2 chip in the latest Smart Start Scripting Toolkit.

www.hp.com/go/foundation à download à SSTK à choose 32-bit or 64-bit

 

Extract the package, you will find the driver under C:\SPxxxxx\hpDrivers\WinpeXX\NIC\be2nd6X.
