[Micronet] Ghost

David Lee

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

Hi David,

Try to play around with the SATA mode in the BIOS on the new machine. That may help.

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 David,

I use Ghost 2.5 with the same computers without problem.  The only difference is that I use a ghost server.  I haven't tried the method you describe.

Feel free to contact me and perhaps I can help you off line.
