    Computer crashes Ghost 8.2 Client Boot

    Hi, we're trying to pull an image from a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10. The task initiates correctly from the Ghost Server and the computer reboots into PC-Dos. However once the Ghost Client splash screen appears (after getting an IP successfully) the computer just hangs there - no error message on the workstation or Task Log.

    We don't think it's a driver issue as we use the same driver on a Boot Floopy which successfully retrieves an IP address from DHCP.

    Many thanks

    Try running ghost with the -FNI switch...... Ghost.exe -FNI

    I've seen similar things with a Dell, turns out it didn't like the driver downloaded from the Broadcom website or the one supplied with Ghost, it insisted on using the one downloaded from Dell directly.

    A PITA but there you go

    we had this on ghost 7.5 with sata hard drives not being used in compatability mode if i remember correctly. also the ndis 2 driver could be at fault. from my experience of ghost if it picks up the mac address of the card it will boot into ghost but may not transfer at an alarming speed if its the wrong driver. say 2mb/sor less i had this a few weeks ago with 2 new suites of pc's. and it was a pita.

    are the hard drives ide or sata? if they are sata then either the -FNI switch as Mr T suggested, or -NOIDE switch should work.

    Re: Computer crashes Ghost 8.2 Client Boot

    Sorry for dragging up the Ă¼ber old post but I have something more useful to contribute.

    I've been having the same problem with the same model and I found this post which was helpful. I tried it with the -FNI switch but it made no difference. I found out what the FNI switch actually does, it disables direct IDE access apparently. So therefore I went into the BIOS (hold down the ESC on post, took me ages to work that one out :|), looked at the second page and changed the IDE mode there from Enhanced Mode to Standard. I can now Ghost these bloody things!
