WinPE 2.0 - ScriptToolkit 1.7 - HPDiscovery.exe

I am able to boot DL380G5 with winpe 2.0 and manaually load NIC drivers and all inf from Win2008 beta PSP. (Need help on adding to offline image plus edit startnet.cmd)

HPDiscovery -f hwdisc.xml returns:
hpdisc_plugin_basesys.dll: plugin returned -1
hpdisc_plugin_nic.dll: plugin returned -1

hwdisc.xml is created, but does not capture everything like systemname, serial number. (PCI devices are captured as with hwdiscovery)
Anyone gotten HPDiscovery to work?
Anyone have the winpe 2.0 offline syntax for drivers and file editing?

Re: WinPE 2.0 - ScriptToolkit 1.7 - HPDiscovery.exe

These two plugins require the WMI package to be installed under WinPE 2.0. To do that you need to apply your image using "imagex" and then install the WMI package using "peimg". For detailed information on using WinPE 2.0 see the Windows Preinstallation Environment User's Guide (WinPE.chm) contained in the Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK).

Hope this helps.

Re: WinPE 2.0 - ScriptToolkit 1.7 - HPDiscovery.exe

Follow up:
after running winnt32.exe on DL380G5:
"disk read error occurred. please ctrl+alt+del" to restart"

Add this to WINPE2.0 registry before you partition with DISKPART:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\vds\Alignment]
@="Alignment Settings in Bytes"
"Between4_8GB"=dword:00000000
"Between8_32GB"=dword:00000000
"GreaterThan32GB"=dword:00000000
"LessThan4GB"=dword:00000000

After DISKPART:
bootsect.exe /nt52 c: (from windows AIK petools)

Then run winnt32.exe
