Seeking PXE driver for HP Compaq Elite 8300

HP Recommended
HP Compaq Elite 8300
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)


I am trying to find the PXE driver for a HP Compaq Elite 8300, I get the following error message:




The message directs me to a Elite 8200 SFF and Intel(R) 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection


I have visited the HP driver store and tried all of the I217-LM drivers, and 82579-LM drivers. both Vista 32 (if available) Win7 32bit


I am on a schools RM Education network which uses a build process similar to SCCM and WDS, but requires a PXE driver, usually a Vista 32 driver


Thank you

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&SUBSYS_1495103C&REV_04 is the id for the Intel  Intel(R) 82579LM


the HP certified driver for win 7 x64 is: 17.2_276048 Rev.A (sp59582)


make sure PXE is the first thing set in the bios boot order


also you may have to use legacy mode on the boot disk instead of GPT


PXE   (Pre eXecution Environment) is a network protocall that is enabled in the BIOS which allows you to boot the system from the network. there are no drivers required other than the intel 82579 chips os driverdriver


for pxe to work you must have a network card that has a bios chip on it (which most have nowadays) or a motherboard with a network chip and a motherboard bios which has the pxe code. this code executes during the bios portion of the startup before the os loads which is why no pxe windows driver is to be found


check that PXE is enabled in the computers bios, and turn on the system you should see a prompt at the begining saying something about PXE,  searching for  xxxxxxx (the exact wording varies between computer makers)
