network card detection iso

Question network card detection iso
Hello Everyone,
Is there a way to autodetect which driver to use in the ISO?
Because i think at least in my case the driver detection is wrong :-(

My setup:
VMWare
- 2 VMS
- ipxe.org iso
- netboot.xyz iso

Virtualbox
- 2 VMS
- ipxe.org iso
- netboot.xyz iso

VMware does neither work (both can not get a dhcp address)

Virtualbox only ipxe iso fails... netboot.xyz iso works and uses the driver 82540em

i followed the steps here (http://ipxe.org/dev/drvtest/dhcp)to solve my error... but it always stays the same.

ipxe.org detects on vmware pcnet32 and says something about AMD Am79C970A
Netboot.xyz detects on vmware pcnet32
ipxe.org detects on virtualbox 82540em

The only thing working is netboot.xyz iso with virtualbox and its using 82540em

netboot.xyz iso version is 7054 , while ipxe has (70544)

What i did also try is to build my own source files... but after doing a git clone

I am struggeling to get / create a iso that works on vmware/virtualbox/kvm any help or suggestion is greatly appreciated.


i did also wanna create my own iso with all drivers i need... but there is a problem in building the iso...


Code:
cp: missing destination file operand after 'bin/iso.dir.pDzcrh'
Try 'cp --help' for more information.
genisoimage: Uh oh, I cant find the boot image 'isolinux.bin' !

this error appears on a make all while creating the iso...

syslinux/isolinux is required to build .iso

RE: network card detection iso
Thank you ... will give it a second try to find out why its not using the isolinux that is present. Do you maybe have a guess for my initial question on how the drivers are selected or recognized?
