Hi All,

Looking for DOS (Ghost 11.5) NDIS drivers for a Dell Optiplex 390 with an onboard Realtek ethernet card.  I download drivers from both Dell and Realtek but I can get my USB Ghost boot key to work.  I have other drivers on this boot key that work perfectly (Broadcom, Intel, etc), just can't seem to find the correct DOS Realtek driver for the Optiplex 390.  

Realtek site I downloaded from:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=13&PFid=5&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false#3

Anyone know where I can get the drivers?

Any help is greatly appreciate,

-Chuck

Hi Chuck.. Have you tried driverguide.com, driverzone.com etc.? Alternatively, you could use generic Realtek drivers, those usually work on Dell computers..

Yes I did find a solution.  I downloaded the latest drivers from Dell's website, then used the Ghost Boot wizard to make my USB key.

The generic realtek NDIS drivers did not work for me.  Wen't to dell, entered the service tag, downloaded the dos drivers and used those drivers with the ghost boot wizard.

I was able to get this working after going to the realtek site below. The main difference i noticed is that the readme file in the extracted folder states to use the below

"RTGBND2.141_EXE_DASH.zip - For 8111CP/DP product.
RTGBND2.141_EXE68.zip - For other Realtek GBE Ethernet family product."

the 390's have a 8111E per my dell info via service tag. meaning i needed to use the second of the mentioned files referenced in the "readme". Once I used these particular files, it worked with no issue.

I had this problem as well. Hope this helps someone.

I downloaded the latest driver from the Realtek website. During the Ghost Boot Wizard screens (once you select the .DOS file), it looks like the Driver Name is not filled in. The driver name needs to be exactly the same name as the DOS file with a money sign at the end.

For instance if the DOS file is RTEND.DOS, the driver name needs to be RTEND$
