Do a file system check on the drives to make sure they are not corrupted.
You can try out this ghost alternative--DriveSnapShot. I stopped using ghost years ago..

My company just purchase Symantec Ghost Solution Suite. Here is a better explanation.  

When I attempt to boot to LAN with this particular machine NIC, it will give the machine via DHCP an IP address but  it will not time out trying TFTP for some reason.  Any help in these matters would be much appreciated.  Thanks again!

1) You may have network saturation issues.
Check the network utilization on the Ghost Server via Task manager.

I do not think you can do more than 2 machines without saturating the network, unless you have 1 Gbps or faster connections.


I hope this helps !
