    Yes, we have lots here. The only thing is you often need to install some drivers manually after the build completes (unless you add them to build area).

    Our latest ones are the TravelMate 5720/5730 series - they work fine as long as the hard disk mode is set to IDE and not SATA in the BIOS.

    Got the Acer Tracelmate 5730

    When building with the standard RM bulid disk i get

    Testing the network connection
    Directory already exists
    No driver for autodetected network card
    Checking for custom drivers


    I have downloaded the driver for the acer support site and its a broadcom B57 driver this is included in the RM standard build disk.

    So do i need to add another driver?

    Thanks
