Download R149798 from http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=PLX_PNT_320&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Copy ..\DOS\NDIS2\B44.dos to ..\NET\ Directory
Open Protocol.ini
Append the following to the end

[B44]
DriverName = B44$

Follow my instructions in the last post to get the Dev ID using "pciscan -v"

Append the following to your netcard.map file

ret="b44"
ven=14e4 "BroadCom"
dev=XXXX "Dell Optiplex 320 Broadcom NIC"

(where XXXX = Dev ID)

That's it, it should work

Cheers

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Everything looks ok there

Can you verify the B44.dos file is:

- In the NET Directory
- Named B44.dos (Note the UpperCase B this can sometimes cause issues)
- 55kb in Size
- Dated 16/12/2005

If all the above is true can you download R127295 it's an earlier version of the driver the files will be exactly the same, however in the past I have noted that some Dell Drivers can be corrupted, for e.g. when I tried to use the B57 Drivers from Dell Latitude D620 they wouldn't work, using the B57 Drivers from the Dell Optiplex 745 worked on both the Optiplex and the Latitude.

Could you also type out the exact message that comes up in Dos. i.e. is cannot load .dos or ?

Cheers

Can you also do a pciscan again using the following line
pciscan -v>OutPut.txt

and then post OutPut.txt information here.

If you expand Network from your link above
Click Broadcom Driver
Click Other Versions
Click Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller, v.v4.47, A16
You'll get R127295

Sorry you're using CD aren't you?  Can you use USB Drive or a Floppy drive or alternatively just type out the output after pciscan -v

When you press F12 to boot from a device then select the USB Device press F8 straight afterwards, then select Shift F8 then select normal it will go through the process

Was the issue with the 320 corrupt driver?

You'll need to to a search for yuknd.dos you may have an old version that won't work with your card.

Hi curioustoknow2007

No, however it seems you have a faulty hdd, recommend calling Dell and asking to replace the drive, I sincerely doubt it has anything to do with Ghost or anything you've done.

this happened me several times when trying to ghost dell 320's, I did get brand new ones and when I ghost them , the transfer hang at 25% and when reboot I get disk read erro occured, I don't know if this has to do with the hard drive or with the image? But  the weired thing is that image .gho sometimes work sometimes hang.

If you only write half or quarter of the disk you should receive an error that basically says that there is no system disk, but shouldn't be a problem with the actual hdd, however the message "Disk error has occured Press Ctrl+Alt+Del" usually implies a faulty hdd.
