what generation 585?
Should have said that upfront. A G2.
Specifically I am having an issue loading the nic driver. While the 385g2 will load fine with the broadcom driver, I can't find anything that will work with the 5858g2.
are you having problems getting the boot image to successfully use and talk to the NIC, or are we talking about actually installing Windows on this device and getting the NICs to work? Because they're very different balls of wax. If it's the latter, I have a workaround that may work. If it's the former, there should be NIC drivers that will work from within PE to enable network use.
It was getting winpe to initialize the onboard 371 nic. I was able to get support from HP to fix it. Here is what they said:
It turned out it was the bridge chip that pointed to the NIC not the NIC.
Here is where to get the BIOS
Not sure I understand the sentence, but none the less the hardware upgrade worked!
