Ghosting Dell PowerEdge 1950 with Norton Ghost 10.00

Please could somebody inform me how I would create a ghost image of a Dell PowerEdge 1950 server.

I have tried booting with the Ghost CD but it does not detect the network card, which is a Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet II Adaptor.

I want to place the image on our network so I need to be able to map a drive, which will require the network drivers.

You might try making a boot floppy set with one of the following NDIS2 Drivers from Dell

Then boot the server from the floppy and your network should be good. Problem is I do not think the standard Ghost disk set will allow for drive mapping.

The more complicated way will involve making a custom boot CD with BartPE.

Download a trial of Acronis True Image and create a boot CD with its Boot CD Creator.  Its boot CD has built in support of every network interface I have run across.  http://www.acronis.com
