Deploying an Image problem

Created: 10 Jan 2013 | 3 comments


Before I get into my problem, I am running Ghost Solution Suite version on Windows Server 2008. The two computers in question are a Dell Dimension 9200 and a HP Workstation xw4300.

The problem I am having is I successfully create an image using sysprep and when I go to deploy this image to a computer that the image was not created from I get boot errors. With the Dell it cant locate a boot file and with the HP it just blue screens. I have tried doing this with XP as well as Windows 7 with no luck. Is there something I am missing? Any help would be much appreciated.

In case this is needed, here are the specs for the computers:

Dell Dimension 9200:

Disk Drive: ST3160815AS

Video Card: Radeon X1300/X1550 Series

Network Adapter: Intel(R) 82566DC Gigabit Network Connection

Processor: Intel Core 2 CPU

SCSI and RAID controllers: Intel(R) 82801HR/HH?HO SATA RAID Controller

HP xw4300 Workstation

Disk Drive: SAMSUNG HD160JJ

Video Card: NVIDIA Quadro FX 540

Network Adapter: Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet

Processor: Intel Pentium 4

Thank You,

When you sysprep make sure that

1: drivers for both systems are installed on the image

2: you use the generalize switch. 

If you have both of those things already try setting the SATA controller mode to "ATA" or "Compatable" on the machines pulling from and sending to.  That setting will force the system to use a more generic driver.  If that works you need to get your driver situation straightened out.

Or create a repair/boot cd using info posted: notice it says"added was a FIX_7HDC tool to fix BSODs and NEWEST driverpacks"

This HP Workstation xw4300 using EFI/UEFI? If you check and try in the BIOS if legacy mode is available does it work then?
