Adaware Rescue USB doesn't see my network adapter

Question

I have two computers with two different motherboards but the same onboard network adapter, Intel I219-V. On one computer when I boot from the adaware rescue USB I can download updates after I reinitialize the network adapter. On the other computer, no downloads, and when I try to initialize the adapter I get a popup error "Can't initialize network adapter" or something similar.

Is there something else I can do to get the rescue USB to see my network adapater?

Hi Helzayat,

I'm trying to reach someone at adaware software that knows about drivers in the Rescue USB.

How old are the two motherboards?
Maybe they are too new or too old for Rescue USB to have drivers for them.

I did a little research and was able to add the drivers needed to the Adaware Rescue USB. Here are the steps if someone else ever needs to do this:

1. Download the new drivers. In my case they are in 25_0.zip from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/22283/Intel-Ethernet-Adapter-Complete-Driver-Pack 
2. Unzip to folder, say C:\25_0
3. Create a folder on your drive to mount the Adaware boot image, in my case C:\AdAwareImg
3. Mount Adaware Rescue USB. In my case as J:
4. Mount the WinPE boot image:

Quote

Dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:"J:\sources\boot.wim" /index:1 /MountDir:"C:\AdAwareImg"

5. Install the new Intel drivers:

Quote

    Dism /Add-Driver /Image:"C:\AdAwareImg" /Driver:"C:\25_0\PRO1000\Winx64\NDIS68\e1d68x64.inf"
    Dism /Add-Driver /Image:"C:\AdAwareImg" /Driver:"C:\25_0\PRO1000\Winx64\NDIS68\e1r68x64.inf"
    Dism /Add-Driver /Image:"C:\AdAwareImg" /Driver:"C:\25_0\PRO1000\Winx64\NDIS68\e1s68x64.inf"
    Dism /Add-Driver /Image:"C:\AdAwareImg" /Driver:"C:\25_0\PRO1000\Winx64\NDIS68\v1q68x64.inf"

6.Unmount and save the Windows PE image:

    Dism /Unmount-Image /MountDir:"C:\AdAwareImg" /commit

Now when I boot from the Rescue USB I am able to reinitialize the network adapter (under Advanced options) and update definitions. For some reason, sometimes I need to click on "Initialize adapter" a second time before it works.
