Symantec Ghost and Intel Pro 1000 NIC Problems
Posted on 2003-02-28
I want to use Ghost 7.5 Corp Edition or PowerQuest DeployCenter to clone a Dell GX260 or SX260. Both have the Intel Pro 1000 NIC.
The problem is the boot disks that I make from the Boot Disk creator never find the NIC. It always says Protocol.ini file does not containt DRIVERNAME = E1000, which it actually does contain.
I researched this on Symantec's site and the instructions tell you a workaround, which does not work and their final answer is they don't support NICs. I find it odd they don't support a NIC that is in pretty much every new Optiplex that comes from Dell.
Their fix is to download prodos.exe from their site for the Intel Pro 1000 card and then add a special driver in the Boot Disk wizard picking the e1000.dos file and then telling it the driver is e1000b$.
I do all of this and it still says there is no NIC.
Has anybody been able to successfully Ghost a machine with this NIC in it? If so, how?
Thanks in advance.
