Ghost 11.5.1, PXE, WinPE 2.0 & network driver issues
Basically, I'm having issues with some drivers using WinPE 2.0 (Vista based).
We used to use PC-DOS PXE booting for a while, and that worked. But some RM models with Nvidia network cards weren't supported, so we tried using WinPE instead. This initially worked very well, inserting drivers into the WinPE image for network cards not supported. However we have some new Fujitsu models are having problems with timeouts over the network. The Fujitsu Esprimo E3521 uses the RTL8111DL NIC and the Fujitsu Esprimo E400 uses the RTL8111E NIC, though both use the same family of drivers from Realtek's website. The E3521 doesn't have Vista drivers on Fujitsu's website, only Windows 7, but the Vista drivers for the E400 works on them both, but they both have the exact same issue.
When taking an image of the PC across the network, we're getting timeout errors: Error 503. Connection timed out with Ghost code 19945. We've checked the list of solutions and determined it is a driver issue rather than hardware or network. (Other computers such as RMs still Ghost fine from the same point and we can take an image to an external hard drive (ruling out computer hardware).
I'm basically looking for advice on where to go next, or for driver support, or what.
Is there any way to use WinPE 3.0 in ghost, instead of 2.0, or is that too convoluted?
We have been able to bypass the Ghost server and send the ghost image directly to a NAS drive, and that worked. So I'm pretty stumped at the moment.
