Greetings,

I've been tasked with dropping a Ghost image onto an Asus Eee PC 900, but am having a very hard time locating the correct wired NDIS driver, to use with a GhostCast server.  I've found a few threads on various sites pointing to various driver mirrors, but all are down, or have been moved.

Can anyone please point me to the correct NDIS driver?

Thanks!

network boot Universal TCP/IP Network Bootdisk is a DOS bootdisk that has almost all NIC drivers built in.

Ghost bootable

Create a Universal network boot floppy image and use that to create your CD boot. set it to connect to your server, and put a copy of Ghost.exe on the shared drive .

I'm using an external DVD burner to load the boot disk, not PXE.  I'll have a look at the generic drivers in Ghost, and see if that works.  I tried the universal boot disk option, but couldn't get the ISO created. I made a bootable flash drive, however, it fails to boot on the Eee PC.  It boots fine on another PC's, however.

Is your Eee PC PXE Boot Compatible? Did you go into the bios and looked around in the Boot Options?

You should try my suggested solution.
Easier, and more control, and will work universally ( not just on the Eee PC )

I hope this helps !
