Can you disable all but one of the four ethernet ports?  I seem to recall their being an issue with Ghosting machines with more than one active NIC. 

Also, which drivers did you use?  If using the WinPE V2 release that comes with Ghost 11.5.1.2266 you need to add Vista 32 bit drivers as WinPE V2 is based on the Vista kernel.

If your issue has been solved, please use the "Mark as Solution" link on the most relevant thread.
