How to create a boot floopy disk to boot cd
Posted on 2007-11-14
I read so many articles and I spent so much time looking around for an answer on how to create a floopy boot disk or boot cd to create/restore images usng ghostcast
My server is runing ghost solution suite ( ghostcast ver 11.0), and I am trying to image dell machine optiplex 755 and vostro 200:
this is what I did for vostro 200 to create a floopy boot disk:
1-symantec ghost boot wizard> then I choose network boot poackage hit NEXT and then I went to the dell website and get the network driver ( 825xx 10/100 Platform LAN Connect )
then I added a network driver NDIS2driver then I browse the location for the E1000.dos and I named it vostro200then I use PC-DOS as DOS version>Next> then client type C:\Program Files\Symantec\Ghost\ghost.exe> Unchecked both ovveride bios firewire and usb >NEXT DHCP will assign IP> then It asked me for 2 floppy which I had ready.
Now at the client SIde I booted the vostro200 with both floopies it asked me to insert segment # 1 then #2.
and I got the Ghostboot console window ready BUT THERE WAS NO OPTION FOR GHOSTCAST to alloq the image transfer to the server.The only thing I could use is local/options/quit.
so What I am doing worng here?
Please advice me because this is driving me crazy
The guy who used to work with me created a bartpe cd with ghost for otiplex 320 and it works great...I dont know how he did it LOL.
