You not only need the .sys file but also .inf and .cat, and you need it for the correct OS
If you take the files from Windows 10, it might be that it is not "supported" in windows 7.

During the first PE step these things are not checked.
What you need is the same version of PE as the actual version you are installing, and then you need to add (install at runtime should work fine) the correct driver into PE which it should then copy over during installation.

You should be able to find the correct files in any of the "intel network drivers" that you can download from their homepage, just extract their setup program with 7zip or similar.

Hmm.. this may clear up one of the questions I had.. I was under the impression that when installing via winpe, it didn't utilize the drivers from winpe and only the installation media that I load up over SMB. I did try embedding the newest drivers into the installation wim, but it made no difference.
