    booting bartpe through ris

    hi all i recently got my usb pen to work with bartpe (i use it to launch ghost ) as it seemed the only way to get around all the broken cd rom drives but can you belive (yes of course you can) that the students are now breaking usb ports so i figure if i can get bartpe to run/launch from ris that would get around the problem does any one know how i can do this please?

    thanks in advance as always

    Re: ris and bartpe

    If you want to keep using your ghost images, then you'd be best getting yourself a PXE server, to network boot and pass bootdisk images to your clients (providing your NICs support this). Ghost Enterprise Suite includes an excellent version. RIS utilises PXE but afaik, it'll only let you deploy riprepped images. Someone else might know otherwise.

    Anyway, the PXE included with Ghost Enterprise saves me a great deal of time -highly recommended. Though I'm very interested in the new deployment tools with 2k3sp2...

    I believe DmMcoy is doing us a guide on using windows pxe to deploy the ghost boot disk.

    Re: ris and bartpe

    I am indeed, its basically someone elses windows 2000 pxe guide updated for 2003 (and ghost) with a couple of important notes. I shall finish it this weekend when I reinstall my home server.

    The original guide was easy, finding out that ghost disk images only get found when not in the root of the tftp folder took a little longer.
