Glenn,

 

I read somewhere that the partition which has the images cannot be a system
or boot partition. Is there any way around that? I don't have a machine
lying around right now.

Regards,

Eduardo Herrmann de Freitas

How about Microsoft's Remote Installation Services?  Free with your Win2K
license...

 

I use it to deploy Win2K all the time.  And even WinXP in a pinch.

Thinking out loud here...  I wonder if someone doesn't need the Altiris
software could they still enable PXE on the clients and setup some type of
PXE server?  I know that's essentially what Altiris' Deployment solution is
doing, but I wonder if someone actually has a free (low cost) PXE server out
there somewhere.  


Anyone?

do you actually have Ghost? We use Ghost 6.5 and there's a wizard that helps
you make a multiboot floppy that reads about almost any nic you can imagine.
And if there's something else you need, there's an option to insert the NDIS
driver and let the wizard to take care of it for you. Makes it real easy

Hi all, 

Apologies if this is off topic. 

Is there a network boot disk maker out there. I need a utility that
simplifies the process of creating network boot disks. I want to be able to
create a single bootable CDROM that contains all the network drivers for all
my desktop and laptop systems. 

Basically, I have all my ghost images are on a central imaging server.
Currently, we have several different boot disks for each type of NIC in a
given system. They don't all have the same NICs. I am trying to simplify
this process, by creating a single bootable cdrom. Any ideas are welcome
guys.  Many thanks as always

Mustafa
