Ghost and Network Cards - Complete Novice
I need to take an image from one of our older PCs. These are Windows 2000. I haven't taken an image of these since our domain changed when we acquired a new Suite of XPs and a Server 2003 network upgrade.
We image the XPs across the network, booting from LAN and using Learning Network Manager to manage the images. I can boot from LAN from the older computers, but, after running Sysprep (the version that came with Win2000), when I try to take an image I get a message saying there is no information about the network card and the imaging aborts before even getting underway.
We have Ghost32 installed on the server.
Previously, these machines were on a Viglen network. We imaged these by multicast with ghost on the server and a floppy disk in the client. We have two sets of floppy disks for the older machines, as there are two different builds with two different network cards.
I guess I am missing the Ghost software from the Win2000 machines. I also imagine we are only licensed for the number of floppy disks we have for them.
Is there a combination of booting from LAN and floppy disk in drive that i can use?? What are my options here?? Could I still use the Multicast method instead?? (Basic English please and as much detail as possible).
