GhostCasting using Symantec's Norton Ghost 8.0

Posted on 2006-05-19
Last Modified: 2013-12-02
I have been using Ghost 7.5 and use floppy discs to boot the clients and send the image using console through the network. Now, recently I have bought Ghost 8.0 and doesn't want to use floppy discs to boot clients. I have arount 100 clients systems.  WHAT I want to do is - boot the client systems on network (PXE) and send the ghost image.

Need guidelines about how to perform the whole task ?

    Ghost doesn't have PXE capability built in.
    They use the 3COM Boot Services for PXE.
    For this you have to use the 3COM Boot image editor to create a bootdisk image.
    Then use the BOOTP tab editor to set the image to use.
    Then start the TFTP server and BOOTP server.

    It is a bit of a long winded affair.  But once you have done it once it is straight forward.
