We recently found ourselves trying to install Windows 2008R2 on a 2 year old Intel Sandy Bridge system with an Intel 82579V onboard network card.
As part of the install, we pushed out the standard Intel ProWinx64 drivers, along with Intel Chipset Software installer to install all missing drivers.
Annoyingly this left us without a working network card, which is slightly bit problematic when trying to finish off the install remotely.
It turns out the fix is to extract the ProWinx64.exe file to a folder on the desktop and update a single inf file:
Find the following section
ExcludeFromSelect = \
This needs replacing with just:
Further down in this file, you’ll need to update the [Intel.NTamd64.6.1] block to also include:
; DisplayName Section DeviceID
; ----------- ------- --------
%E1502NC.DeviceDesc% = E1502, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502
%E1503NC.DeviceDesc% = E1503.6.1.1, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1503
Following on from this, you should be able to run APPS\PROSETDX\Winx64\DxSetup.exe
This will then do the install with the local edited files and install the missing drivers
