lots of toshiba tecra A3 laptops, want to image using ghost corporate 7.5 marvell yukon 88e8036 PCI-E

Hello,

Can anyone provide me with the details on how to successfully make a boot disk or rom for a Toshiba Tecra A3? The toshy has a MArvell yukon 88e8036 pci-e nic.

i have searched the web but no good, have tried using the standard ndis driver but i think i need to add some switches etc to the boot disk making process in ghost corp 7.5

please advise

thanks,

Sounds like your saying that you are unable to make a boot disk for the toshy nic is that right?
If you have added the driver in ghost and it does not work, you might have to change one of the drivername=var$ variables in protocol.ini on the floppy, if you post the contents of this file and the dir list of the floppy i could confirm.

If making the boot floppy doesn't work out for you, try Ultimate Boot CD (http://ubcd.sourceforge.net/).  It's open source and has a very nice NIC autodetect feature that will have your laptop booted to DOS and connected to your LAN in  jiffy.  I use it for my ghosting needs and it works well with a variety of hardware so you don't need a library of boot floppies for every different NIC in your shop.
