    Re: NX6325 Ghosting slow

    Your txt file?

    I don't know what your setup it but what I do to ghost a machine is boot them from a universal tcp/ip bootdisk this then connects to a shared folder on the network that has ghost and my menu program in it.

    The menu then gives me options i.e ghost, aefdisk.

    All the menu does it call ghost.exe with ghost.exe -ide

    I set the ghostcast session manually.

    Re: NX6325 Ghosting slow

    I knew I should have been more specific to start with, sorry.

    From the beginning:
    I create "network boot disk" using symantic boot disk wizard. This creates two disks (one with the NIC drivers and one with ghost).
    I use these to boot the laptop into GHOST.
    Meanwhile on the ghostcast server I have clicked "accept clients"
    In GHOST I go to "GHOST CAST" > MULTICAST > enter the session name > select no compression > then click ok.
    Things start off great (for about 5 seconds) then the transfer speed drop to 5mb/min.

    Where it that whole process do i enter the -noide switch?

    any help please :cry:

    The one with ghost on whatever starts ghost or you run ghost.exe from the commandline just run ghost.exe -noide

    You are a GOD.

    Thank you, thank you.

    I think I was confusing things by adding:
    -clone,mode=create,src=1,dst=@mca

    which i got from the ghostcast server.

    Keep It Simple Stupid is now my new moto.

    Thanks again

    Re: NX6325 Ghosting slow

    Hi all,

    My batch of 5 arrived today. Does anyone have any pointers as to which drivers they used? I've been getting an 19913 error from Ghost about a DHCP server when I go and use the Multicast option. The weird thing is that I'm not even using DHCP - I use static IPs for Ghosting.

    Any help/ideas would be much apprciated - after about two and a half hours this afternoon, I've still not come up with any solution.

    Thanks,
    Neil

    Re: NX6325 Ghosting slow

    Hi Ben,

    Thanks for your reply - I did indeed try the drivers from the Broadcom site and the HP site, but to no avail. Are there any others people have used successfully? Are there any considerations I need to take into account when creating the boot disks using the Ghost Boot Disk Wiazrd?

    Thanks,
    Neil

    I don't use the ghost boot disk wizard so can't help there I'm afraid.

    This is a problem I had with broadcom nics -

    "What network card are using. You don't have have a Dell with a Broadcom NIC by any chance?

    I've just been imaging 15 Stone laptops with broadcom nics, and when it came to creating the boot disk the protocol.ini file was incorrect, in that it had a blank space where the drivername should be, i.e.

    "[protman]
    drivername=PROTMAN$

    [pktdrv]
    drivername=PKTDRV$
    bindings=nic
    intvec=0x60
    chainvec=0x66

    [nic]
    drivername = [this space was blank]"

    it should have had B44$, without the brackets, for the Broadcom 440X 10/100. worked fine after that. I've never had this problem before creating a boot disk."

    Re: NX6325 Ghosting slow

    I believe he is trying to ghost HP NX6325's as per the topic title but I could be wrong. If so it's not a 440X it a 10/100/1000 Broadcom Netlink as I'd allready said.

    But thanks for your suggestion.

    Re: NX6325 Ghosting slow

    Forgive me if I'm being ignorant, but it could be that when he creates the ghost boot disk, the drivername in the protocol.ini is blank whatever version of a broadcom nic it is.

    Hi beeswax,

    Thanks,
