    Ghost and PXE Boot image

    Hi All,

    Apologies for my ignorance but I am still new to ghost..

    I am using Ghost Suite 2.5

    Basically, I created a deploy (clone) task pointing towards an existing image. I have then created a machine group for the PCs that I want to receive the image. What do I have to do to make that image available on the PXE boot menu?

    All help gratefully received!

    Cheers,
    Stu

    i didnt think the image appears on the machine as an option as part of the PC's booting.
    usually the image selection is done from the server and and the client just receives the image when you reboot the machine and it loads the PXE environment with the network drivers etc.

    Thanks SHimmer45.

    How it has been set up here (not by me) is that you PXE boot the machine and it will offer you a menu. For example, staff laptop type, student desktop type, HP 4515s etc. You get the picture.

    You select the option you need. Corresponding machine groups have been set up and once the client starts polling the ghost server it appears in the corresponding machine group. You then execute the task to push out the image. Hope this all makes sense!!?

    So what I have done is created an image for a new client type (and the corresponding deploy task) and a new machine group for same.

    What i can't work out for the life of me is how to edit the pxe boot menu to offer me a selection that points to the new machine group.

    Sorry if I'm not very clear with my terminology here, but i am really trying to pick this up on the fly.....

    Cheers!
