    Hello,

    I have a installation of zeroshell on a notebook with a Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260 chip.
    This WiFi chip need the firmware file ‘iwlwifi-7260-17.ucode’ which is not included in /etc/firmware.
    I copied /etc/firmware/* to /Database/etc/firmware/ and added the iwlwifi-7260-17.ucode file.
    This Pre-Boot-Script:

    
    # Pre Boot Startup Script
    #
    # Firmware update for iwlwifi
    #
    modprobe -r iwlmvm
    rm -Rf /etc/firmware
    ln -s -f /Database/etc/firmware /etc/firmware
    modprobe iwlmvm
    

    makes the new Intel WiFi chip work.
    This way of adding firmware files should work for other firmware files too.
