Trouble GhostCasting with HP Elitebook 8760w

Created: 03 Sep 2013 | 2 comments

Hi folks.  I need a little help.  I'm having trouble Ghostcasting with some HP Elitebooks using Ghost 11.5.1.2266.

I can Pxeboot & connect, but as soon as the session starts, it fails with "ghost could not allocate page table memory".  Researching indicated building a WinPE boot Cd with the Ghost Boot wizard was the option to solve this.  I included the correct Vista NIC drivers.  It boots into ghost, but can't connect to the session.  The same disc works fine in an HP x8600 tower.

I found an article with instructions to use "netsh interface IPV4 set address "local area connection" dhcp", but it fails saying filename is incorrect.  My interface is identified as "Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1".  Using the command with that name says "failed to configure DHCP.  The interface may be disconnected."

Any help would be appreciated.

Extract the drivers to a folder and point to the folder which has the .inf and.sys files,while adding drivers under WINPE .Recreate boot package and use the same.

Thanks for the info Maneesh.  I tried adding the drivers at the link you provided.  I also included the Vista drivers for the Specific Intel interface, and WinPE drivers I found at HP.  Unfortuantely, sill no luck.

This project has been bumped down my priority list a notch.  I have to integrate a Boundry Defense suite now.

When I get chance to come back to this, I'm going to try to build a WinPE 3.1 disk.  I found a link in another post.
