ifM63x64.sys 0xC0000098 error on deployment after WinPE has installed the OS and rebooted RRS feed

  • Question

  • First, YES I have searched through this forum for an answer and still nothing has worked.

    As I mentioned in the title, WinPE runs through the deployment tasks, installs the OS and reboots.  Nothing out of normal other than after installing the OS it takes an unusually long time to apply the unattend.xml

    After restarted we get the error message in the title ifM63x64.sys missing or corrupt.  0xC0000098.

    We are not injecting any LAN drivers into the OS, however removing the inject drivers in the task sequence all together does not correct the issue either.

    LAN drivers are injected into WinPE, however none of them are iSCSI and WinPE doesn't have an issue.

    I have started the reference computer, with no issue, and searched the entire registry for FCoE and come up with no entries.  The driver installed is not iSCSI but rather e1d62x64.sys.

    Searching the Driver Store for ifM* returned 0 results.

    Any suggestions on a next step?

  • This was resolved by not installing the Intel downloaded LAN drivers, and simply injecting the drivers we wanted via MDT instead.
