Need the Intel Ethernet driver for the Ghost 15 SRD for Lenovo the W520

I cannot start the networking on the SRD for my W520. The environment keeps says that it can't find the adapter. How do I get the proper driver to load into the environment? Thanks for the help.

The NIC is an Intel 82579LM Gigabit

You need to find the 32-bit Vista compatable driver. It will need to be extracted so you can see the inf, cat , etc files. Put them on a UFD or on the hard drive so that you can browse to them from the Recovery Emvironment. From the SRD I think it is Utilities > Load a Driver. Once you are sure it is working, you can make a Custom SRD so it will always have the driver.

HERE is a link to download your driver.

I used UniExtract to get to the files inside the exe file.

I have attached what I believe is your driver to this post. Since we cannot attach a zip file, you will have to remove the txt extension....

Good, you came up with e1c6032.inf too. I think the driver I posted is a newer version. I'm sure either will work.

LOL,  it took a while to find it, there was a whole bunch in the Intel download.

I looked through them till I found one with the exact model listed in it.

But mainly I wanted you see the skydrive idea I stole from Subash.

Thanks to all who replied. The W520 needs the driver on the Intel website from the  NDIS61 folder (there are many versions). I was able to extract it and then do a load of the driver before I started the networking services. I'll now create a custom SRD. Has the SRD been update from the version that I original received with Ghost 15.0?

Thanks again
