    LNM Creating ghost image

    Hi

    I've only just started working in a school and I need some help creating a ghost image on a set of laptops. (TOSHIBA Satellite series )I've never used learning network manager and have very little experience with servers. Basically I get this error when I try to create an ghost image.

    The operating system image you selected does not contain the necessary drivers for your network adapter. Try selecting a different operating system image. If the problem persists, contact your system administrator.

    Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit.


    I have no problems creating/restoring images with the other desktop computers in the school. Im really confused and would appreciate it if someone could hep me.

    Ah ha, my advice is re-search for RIS Network Drives as it uses RIS - Remote Installation Services, which only has limited network card drivers, so you have to add them. I would guess the laptops have the Intel Pro 100 network cards in them which need adding.

    Thanks does anyone know how to add the drivers? Do you put them in the i386 folder?

    If you search this forum for RIS Tips (or our resident Google AKA Geoff pops along soon) you will find all the info needed in that thread.

    You could also look at the later part of this Intel KB article - http://www.intel.com/support/network.../cs-008216.htm

    The info from MS and Intel is perfect and has worked for me. BUT I did find that you had to get the right drivers to start with, took me about 4 goes in the end but it is now working fine for me.

    Re: LNM Creating ghost image

    A week on and I still haven't managed to sort this out. I've added drivers and edited the .sif files but it won't resolve it.

    However I looked at this technet page (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315074)

    Do you think updating the server to SP3 will make any difference?

    Re: LNM Creating ghost image

    Surely your server is running Server 2003 SP1 not Server 2000?

    It is clearly a driver issue and the Intel chipsets have been a nighmare for me, I've been using RIS for 3 years now and only just in the last 6 months have got them working for all my Intel Network Cards after trying to add them in for months and months, somewhere there is complexitys and dud info.

    The best advice i can give is keep trying, try an older version of the driver from somewhere else etc, I know you will be feeling like smacking your head against a brick wall but hang in there as they say you will get there!

    Re: LNM Creating ghost image

    Its running Server 2003 sp1, I think in that article it said:

    "The server side of this fix is included in SP3 and is not available as a separate fix".

    But It doesn't seem likely that will do it.
    Yeah thanks, its quite annoying tho,all the other bits of kit (including the really old stuff) ghost fine.

    Re: LNM Creating ghost image

    The article is for Server 2000 not 2003, so don't worry about it.

    Its a real pain, I have newer kit and older kit that worked perfectly just 2 batches of Compaqs that had Intel NICs rather than Broadcom (which fine had to be added manualy but worked fine first go first drivers) but once its up and working it will all be good I can assure you that your pain will be worth it in the end when you just press a few keys on each pc and off it goes.
