    Ghost 8.2 issue creating an image - drivers?

    We are using an older version on ghost (8.2.0.1117) and have recently got some new machines in that we have installed xp on and have tried using ghost to create an image but ghost is having an issue with the newer on board lan drivers.

    This is the latest one i have downloaded from Asus and tried in input into ghost:
    Realtek LAN Driver V5.726.525.2009

    When I go into ghost boot wizard to add the new drivers on the server I have chosen tcp/ip network boot image, clicked add and then tried both the packet driver and NDIS2 driver, left the mode to automatic.

    I have checked my switch and it is open for multicasting (as we have done it before) and i have tried a seperate network card in the machine (ones from the old machine that i know have worked) and they worked straight away so i believe that it is a driver issue with the new lan on the mobos.

    Can anyone help me get these drivers in ghost so i can multicast/unicast please, it seems to me that this is the issue but just cannot get it to work.

    Has anyone had a similar problem?

    Thanks

    Hi

    I got a little bit further with it yesterday, when you have added the driver it goes to add pc dos screen and then on the next screen it will ask you for the ghost exe file and a section for paramiters. It was falling over here but I found that it was looking in the wrong directory for the ghost exe, I found a ghost32.exe and pointed it there and it allowed me to get further.

    Seems to have added ok yesterday but i am going to try and take an image today to see if it worked yesterday but will update this when i have tried.

    NetBootDisk.com - The Universal TCP/IP Network Bootdisk for M$ Networks

    Works with everything I throw at it. Create a boot floppy, then use Nero to make it into a bootable CD. Add ghost.exe to the CD. Jobs a good 'un.

    Although oddly I tend to have less issues with ghost 7 then our sister (although I'm sure they're adopted) school have with ghost 8.
