    Satellite Pro A100 Ghost Driver

    Just got a few Tosh Sat Pro A100s and I'm trying to get a ghost image of them.
    XP is saying the card is an Intel Pro 100 VE. I've got the e100b.dos driver that I use with other Pro 100 and VE cards and it refuses to work.
    Keeps giving me the error about NIC not found etc.
    It's driving me mad.
    Dos uses e100b.dos, yet windows uses e100b325.sys, just wondering if theres an e100b325.dos driver out there somewhere which its looking for?
    Any help would be VERY much appreciated

    had the same issue with a120's

    I've started using a little HP linux program on a usb stick which loads up and seems to work better, theres a bit about it here http://forum.winimage.com/viewtopic....e935fbe239b54e

    Although I'm sure you could use RIS too, but I'm not very well versed with it

    the a120 we had was with a gb lan card so that was easy enough luckily, just use e1000 driver instead.

    so this hp tool, what exactly does it do? just let you boot a usb stick and do the image to that instead of ghosting across a network?

    Re: Satellite Pro A100 Ghost Driver

    i couldn't get a ghost cd or ghost cast server to work, and there was no floppy drive, so this basically boots into a mini linux kernel which loads the ghost program.

    then you start the job from the server end

    bit of an ugly workaround but it works.

    not had a chance to look at this yet, but i dont get how ghost works on the usb stick. you mean you make the usb stick bootable then load the ghost program from usb?

    we only have 2gb sticks and our images are shaping up to be about 7-8gb, so i do need network access to save it to a remote area.

    Re: Satellite Pro A100 Ghost Driver

    we use gss 2.0 and this has the option to use a usb stick that it formats and loads the drivers onto as a replacement for either floppy or cd so you still need the correct driver which is not much of a help.

    However there is also an the other option to load the ghost client onto the machine in windows and then set the ghost console to take the image of the pc. This boots the machine into a virtual partition and you don't need to use the driver to get there.

    Don't know if i have explained it very well. If you check out symantecs website im sure it has more info there. http://www.symantec.com/enterprise/p...025&pvid=865_1

    @badboy:

    we used the ghost client from the console, but when you tell it to create a new image, it still needs to access the network from DOS to send the image somewhere doesn't it.

    in the end i just told it to write the image to dvd as it went. had to waste two dvds for it but at least its done

    Oh sorry. Apologies. My friend posted this while i left the laptop for 5 minutes! He himself is not a geek and finds the fact that I look on these forums relatively amusing.

    Hi, I am trying to create a Ghost boot disk for the A120. I have the e1000 driver, but it comes up Unable to loacte PCI LAN adaptor. Has anyone got any suggestions at all?

    Use the ms-dos option in ghost to make the ghost disk and it works correctly.

    Re: Satellite Pro A100 Ghost Driver

    Thanks for the tip badboyvtec.

    That seemed to get further, so I think the NIC part is sorted using ms-dos instead pc-dos.

    Now the error "invalid command.comopied Enter correct name of command interpreter (eg, C:\command.com) >>_" comes up - thats exactly how it appears on the screen, Guees it meant invalid command.com copied.

    \ isn't working on the laptop keyboard in dos so I can't type c:\command.com any way!

    This is GSS 2.0 and the ghost.exe file is over 2 disks. The error appears after loading the second part of ghost.exe is completed.

    Re: Satellite Pro A100 Ghost Driver

    try creating the second disk again, it might mean it didn't copy over the ms dos files properly.
    i had that this morning, ghost disk 2 whinging about unable to find command.com so i created it again, worked fine.
