    Look for the Realtek RIS drivers for that network card (on the Realtek website) we had some HP's that need this for the RM build process.

    Thanks

    Are you saying that I should change the network driver on the RM One and them make a Ghost Disk with the RIS Driver..

    Or just make a Ghost Disk with the RIS Driver ?

    BTW.. we do not have a RM Network.. we have a vanilla XP/2003 Network and we are Ghosting 34 RM Ones with only Ghost from a Build

    Yep that right use the RIS driver just to build the ghost disk as it proberly needs a dos driver. The windows driver should be fine in your image that you are deploying.

    BTW: The RM build process requires dos drivers.

    We use a Ghost Boot CD or Flash Drive to boot the PC into Ghost..

    From there we have a Laptop or PC that has \Ghostcast started and then join to it..

    No RIS or PXE needed....

    Did you create the patch file that they wanted you? I could try digging out the RM driver form our system if you have no luck.

    If you look through the driver files there is a directory with a patch creation utility form a number of files. Also I think I got the driver you might want so if you PM me your email address I can send it.

    Hmm... Have you tried using the boot options '--noide --nousb'?

    I have seen these mentioned in various places, but don't have any firsthand experience myself.

    The other option is to dig out an old copy of real 'MS-DOS' and create a disk from that instead of PC-DOS.

    Mmmmmm... What confuses me is that i uploaded from the RM One to the Laptop and PC Dos loaded.... yet when I tried on the other RM Ones to download the image.... the Boot stalled at loading PC Dos......

    Mmmm why on one RM but not the other....

    I thinks I need to investigate the BIOS settings......
