I've now moved from Ghost to RIS installs and all is going well - no more images to worry about - just add drivers and go.
However, I've come across a strange problem that I guess must, somehow, be a network card issue.
We have different PCs throughout the school, but a few Dell Optiplex GX60's (not all of the GX60's, just some of them!) go through to the end of the install, but fail to join the domain. When you log on to the machine as local admin, it reports new software found and proceeds to install the network driver. After this you can then join the domain and all is almost ok....
We push out apps via GPO and these same machines try to install the apps every time they start up - even though they are already installed.
I'm replacing the network cards to see if that's the issue, as I've tried other versions of the driver (intel pro 100)
Anyone else had this issue?
