    GhostCast - getting stuck at 14% everytime

    I'm trying to create a Ghost Image. I've built my new PC with Windows 7 on it.
    I've newly installed Ghost on the server (we had it on the old server so I have used it before but I've never set it up from scratch).

    It's all looking good, and I'm picking up the ghost session on the PC, albeit it's asking me to enter the session name manually whereas it was previously set up so that it just picked up the session and started working.

    The session starts well, and then it sticks at 14% every time. It's a file called 68 recovery.wim

    Any suggestions?

    Always on the same target, could be ram on the target or a corrupted image, can you check the image with ghost tools and on a different target?

    I'm trying to create the image. It's a brand new machine, just had Win 7 Pro installed on it, and Office, and a few other bits of software but not much.

    I am not wondering if Ghost is the way to go, or if I should investigate Windows Deployment Services.

    Have a look at mdt it gives you a nice interface to build images.

    You could try a different network driver (or driver version?) in ghost as we have had a similar problem in the past where uploads on our HP desktops (with Broadcom ethernet adapters) were stopping at 11% and although we had what we thought was the correct driver selected, it didn't work and selecting the one we didn't think it would be actually solved the issue.

    Occasionally, adding your own drivers from the vendor's website sometimes even improves network throughput.

    If all else fails use a PXE driver.

    Well I got them all rolled out using Windows Deployment, but it was a long and tedious process and I only needed to do 33 machines....

    Multicast wouldn't work, and after having tried it, unicast wouldn't work either.
    I ended up having to select Format Hard-drive before each installation or they would fail.

    I couldn't even get the WAIK to download correctly (Kept saying the file was corrupted), so I just answered the questions manually. Feasible with 32, but not so good if I'd had 1000s to do.

    All in all, a very frustrating process, and not one I'm keen to repeat.
