Problem with Ghost Solution Suite and Realtek PCI-E GBE

Created: 16 Jun 2011 • Updated: 16 Jun 2011 | 4 comments

I am attempting to Ghost several Dell Vostro 3750 laptops and have run into a problem.  I have installed the newest Realtek NDIS driver and have also tried PXE to an older Realtek NDIS driver.  I have also tried the Universal PXE driver.  The problem I am getting is that during DOS boot I get to the "Transferring Image" line and it hangs there.  If I wait about 3 hours it will finally go to the Ghost setup.  Even after this it takes about an hour and a half to image one computer.  We are not using WinPE, just DOS.  I believe we are using Ghost Solution Suite 2.5.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks.

You posted in the wong forum, I will move this to the Ghost Solution forum for you.

Sorry about that.  I am relatively new.  Thank you for your help.

PCDOS has no native support for SATA hard disks, so unless you have switched your machines to compatibility mode in the bios, you may find that imaging just does not work.  I would recommend switching to WinPE.

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