I have tried BartPE and NetBoot Utilities, and nothing will work. I created boot disks for the D630, and it was not this big of a hassle. i do have the newest drivers from dell.com for the E6400.
the way our current disks are setup, is they boot the machine, you enter domain username and password, and then it loads up ghost automatically. in ghost, you can browse the mapped drive the disk created, and install an image.
in the past, i just had to make the disk bootable, copy over all the files from a previous disk, and then add the new drivers, and change any pointers to the drivers. now, i'm getting "Error Accessing NEMM.DOS. TCP 1.0 not loaded."
Error accessing NEMM.DOS. Tiny RFC 1.0 not loaded
also, error - "error loading device driver protman.dos"
