    Getting ghostcast working under native WDS

    Currently im going through this: How to build a Windows PE [Vista] CD/DVD that contains Ghost32.exe and then join a client machine to a Ghost Cast Server session to create or restore an image file.

    I'm at the stage where it's telling me to add vista (or windows 7 presumably) drivers, do i just use any random driver and hope for the best? or is there something i should be using? they don't explain themselves very well!

    The network driver for the computer you're going to be sticking the image on.

    I thought it was the NDIS2 driver or something along those lines.

    Ended up downloading the standard realtek drivers and even on a board with a different chip version (tested on purpose) it still works!

    Now have 3 boot options when F12 is pushed:
    Capture
    Discover
    Ghostcast

    Capture and discover for windows 7 deployment and ghostcast for deploying all our current XP images until we move to windows 7 in the summer

    Now i have one vital question though....how do i make this passworded? at the moment if i left network boot on and a kid restarted a PC they could easily go straight through the nice unattended windows 7 install without any authentication at all! (F12, enter, enter.... next thing they know there loading in to a windows 7 desktop )

    You need the vista netword card drivers for every pc you are going to use it on.

    As it's booting windows pe based on vista and then loading 32 bit ghost.
