Last Modified: 2013-12-02
Got a few IBM thinkPads laptops with Windows Vista pre-loaded after installing all software needed. I ghost it with (ghost enterprise 8.0) because I need to replicate to 15 more laptops. After loading another laptop with the newly made image and going through the ghosting with no issues the laptop does not boot.

Can someone help!!!!

Thank you all for the comments they are very informative.
Ive decided on buying a newer version of Ghost (ghost 12 or ghost suite 2.0) but dont know if suite is to much for my needs and if ghost 12 have the imaging option, which one you think it will be most suitable for my needs (Replicating Vista and additional software loaded from 1 laptop to many IBM thinkpad laptops).

Yes, it is a complete suite to quickly distribute your vista to other PC's. Of course it needs some learning.
