New Linux network driver for Latitude E5450

I'm having a problem booting a Dell Latitude E5450 into Imaging Maintenance Mode. After the Zenwork Imaging splash screen it tells me it could not find the ZENworks Repository. The only error I can see in the Module Output is insmod: error inserting , /modules/powernow-k8.ko': -1 No such device

Does this mean I need a new network driver for Dell Latitude 5450 model laptops? I applied the current Aug 2015 PRU and it does not help.

The make is: Intel Ethernet Connection I218-LM

If this is the case, is there a relatively easy way to add the driver I need to my satellite server? Is it easier to wait for the next PRU update and pray that it has the driver I need? How do I let Novell know to add this driver to the next update without opening a SR?

All other desktops and laptops I have can image successfully from this network connection. I'm running Zenwork Imaging 11.3.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

PRU has nothing to do with imaging, PRU is used by inventory... Have you applied the latest imaging update: http://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=EKPhP02d0eA~ ? There seems to be a fix fox e5550 so if we are lucky the same fix apply for e5450.
