Can't image with onboard SIS900 network card (4Front PCs)
I've inherited some awful 4Front all-in-one PCs, which despite being less than 3 years old are dreadful.
The problem I'm having is that I can't image them (96 of them!), which is a major headache.
The PCs themselves have SIS661 motherboards and onboard SIS900 network.
I'm running Ghost Solution Suite 2.5 (latest - fully up to date), and i've got the latest SIS900 ndis and packet drivers and created numerous combinations of boot disks (PC-DOS and MS-DOS).
When I take a unicast image, it pulls to the server ok. If I try a multicast restore (on say three machines), one will work with files missing, one will loop during the windows boot and one will fail duing multicasting. I've tried setting 'receive mode = 6' for the driver mode during the creation of the bootdisks (this slows the speed, but doesn't alter the outcome), and i've also tried syspreping the image before sending it back to the server.
I've even moved the server and plugged it directly into the switch the suite of PCs and using (HP Procurve 2548, multicast enabled).
I can't think of anything else to try after almost three days of effort.
Has anybody got any ideas out there? (and has anybody got any of 4Front machines which they've managed to image?)
