I'm in care of Dev Build machines for my company and we recently switched out build platform from workstation to Win2k Server. I want to make images of these machines, but I don't believe you can with Ghost 9.0. When I try to install GhostI get an "inconpatiable OS error"..

any ideas?

thanks

why not use RIS ? Ghost 9.0 has to have all of the scsi drivers etc etc... RIS works better.

Remote Install Service. It's bundled with Windows 2000 and 2003 Server.

How will this RIS allow me to make local images of the win2k servers in question? I want to image these machine and put the image on a second partition or drive on the same machine?

It won't do that. I thought you were looking for a deployment sollution.
