Jimmy forgot to reply to all, so I’m forwarding his note...

I should've said this in my original reply too, I just want to confirm Richard's finding, I had to do the same thing.

I’ve had problems creating images with Dell computers - until I used Acronis to remove their FAT boot partition.  After I did that, the image that was created actually worked on another, identical computer.

Hi everyone!

I have a challenge.

 

I have 20 or so Dell Optiplex 980 machine running Windows7 32 bit with 4 gig RAM.  I created my reference drive, syspreped it and used Ghost 2.5 to create the image.  I have put the image on a USB hard drive as well as on DVD.  I then Ghost the image to a new machine with no errors.

 

I then start up the new machine and it gets to “Starting Windows” with the windows flag pulsing and just sits there.  I even let it sit overnight and still nothing.  I also cannot get to Safe mode.  This does not appear to be a Windows7 issue since I used the same procedure with 17 Dell Latitudes running Windows7 with no problems at all.

 

I need help!  Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Try changing the hard drive controller characteristics in the BIOS.  We have seen this in a variety of hardware scenarios.

[Micronet] Export members of an OU to a .CSV?

Jack Burris
Howdy,
I'm trying to export a list of all the members of one of my USERS groups
in CalNet Active Directory to a spreadsheet (Comma Separated Values
would be just fine).  I'm wondering if there's some command line magic
incantation I can utter or whether I'm just overlooking an obvious item
in the GUI.

Thanks,
Jack Burris

Re: [Micronet] Export members of an OU to a .CSV?

Graham Patterson
If it is a group, I just run the output of a net group X /domain command
through a little formatter in AWK. I dump all my group memberships every
week in case of disaster.

WMI or PowerShell is the approved way to do it these days, of course.
But many of the old tricks from NT Domain days still work 8-)
