Ghost boot automated to avoid USB switch box squirreliness
Posted on 2004-08-24
Below is a question I reasked on sunday because the other participants problem was a variation of mine.
What I need to know is where to write the switch so that I do not need to type anything until the image is run. In this case the control I would need to aply is to push send when the desied number of machines have joined the session and waiting. Many arlicles both in and out of experts exchange refer to the corrrect switches. I need to know how and where to write them. Please.
Walkabouttigger gave this super analysis of a question on fully automating Ghost network boot.
"So all you want the bootable media to do is boot to some OS, run Ghost and have it automagically grab the correct image from the correct multicast server and baddabing baddaboom it completes all by itself without user intervention and then waits when complete. Correct?"
This is exactly what i need to do but I am grabbing and loading a created image not cloning. I can add multiple nic drivers on one disk and I can see where one would "add" in the dialog box for adding portions to a ghost boot disk but I am not sure of the details of how to do it. Do the switches go into config.sys command.com ghost or should I use PCDos? I am not sure haow the point system works but I mihgt be able to help with an ACCESS.md question or two for reciprocation
I am using Ghost 8.0 on XP pro to load XP pro images
