Hello all,

I am in need of support for creating a boot disc for an Acer Power 2000. When I run the ghost boot disc wizard I choose the options in the ghost boot wizard I am choosing the following.
1.)Network Boot Package
2.)Highlight Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet adapter as an NDIS2 Driver
3.)Use PC-DOS
4.)Under client type I choose Symantec Ghost, the correct path to the ghost.exe and click Next
5.)Firewire and USB options are left blank
6.)DHCP is chosen under network settings
7.)Create ISO Image, Provide a file name, Check the box for CD/DVD bootable support. Click Next
8.) Ghost Review details are shown. I see the following.
Client Details
Client: Symantec Ghost
Destination: C:\Ghost2.iso

Network Driver
Template: Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet
Driver: yuknd.dos
Driver Type: NDIS2 Driver

Configuration Files:
 @echo off
 Set TX=GHO+5:00
 if exist
 echo loading
 ghost.exe -bootcd=\cddvdimg.bin -ghostoncd

 Device =\net\protman.dox /l:\net
 Device =\net\dis_pkt.dos
 Device =\net\yuknd.dos
 Lastdrive = Z


9.)The wizrd finished and creates the ISO

10.)I then take the iso and burn it to a dvd and have two files on the dvd Bootcat and osboot.img.

11.) I restart the pc with the new boot disk and recieve a boot failure message.
 Boot from CD:
 1. HD System Type-(00)
Boot Failure

When I try this same dvd or cd on another system it works.

Can anyone please assist. I have 50 workstations that I need to deploy. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
