    Absolutely I've given up trying to ghost them. For now I'm just letting the setup complete on them and then adding them to the domain.

    Oh joy! I've got four of these being shipped out to us in the next week or so and was definately planning on using Ghost to build one up and image the rest. Doesn't sound good at a rate of 2-5MB/Min - rather painful if you ask me.

    Strange, we have DX5150s with the same NIC, they work OK. As do the Dell D610s we have.

    They are nice laptops though!!... just be glad you only have four... if they are SATA hdds.. (which i think they might be not checked.... ) you could allways pull them out and they will plug into a regular pcs sata port. and ghost them like that.. i'm glad i only have 6... i'll leave them ghosting over night i think...

    I have some NX6310s and they ghost just fine..they have broadcom 440x Nics in...

    Re: NX6325 Ghosting slow

    there's a link to a previous post here and also if you're ghosting sata drives you need to add the switch -NOIDE (I think that's what it is - I'll check for you)

    *EDIT* the link to imaging sata drives is here and it is -NOIDE

    I've imaged lots of machines with SATA drives without using that switch but on my nx6325's I gave up trying to ghost them as it was soo slow.

    We bought 17 of them.

    Lets hope that works, we have got 30 to do! I had 15 Toshibas at the beginning of term and ghost kept freezing on them. Not much fun setting them up individually.

    Just to confirm from me as well that with the -noide switch ghosting is indeed very good on these.

    Previously had very low speeds just had 381mb/min

    Re: NX6325 Ghosting slow

    I am still struggling. Tried -noide in the command line bit on the ghost cast server but no joy. What am i doing different to you all?

    The -noide switch is for the ghost.exe client not the ghostcast server.
