A problem with Ghost

Hi,
Hope some one can help.

Sorry I don't have Ghost version available...

Here is whats up. Dumped the computer to an image on the server....evor. R is for right cd rom.

Dumped a second image evol onto server L is for left cdrom.

Both Compaq evo's but the MB are different, and cd roms are in different locations ,so hences two images.

When trying to load the image onto a new machine...the ghost program stops at 60% and or 70% and ask for the second cd or image file.

They were not spanned at the time of making the images.

I checked the server and it shows only one 2gig image for each machine. Made sure I was loading the r for the r machines and L for the L machines.

Made sure I selected the right nic card.
Memory has been tested....good

Thought the HD might be bad so I tried a known good HD....same results.

If anyone has come across this and has an answer..........please post back.

Just finished reading the Ghost manual cover to cover....no help.

Google...no joy

How large are the image files? Do you mean CD Writer, and you burned the images directly to a CD?

No, Images were uploaded to server on hardrive R: They are 2gigs....each


Image is then loaded from server to appropiate machine with a clean hd.

So far out of six machines only one of each loaded 100% using the image on the server.

Have 150 evo lefts
Have 150 evo rights

There is just to many to load manually.

Never encountered this problem before so I, m baffeled.

Do the Compaqs have hidden partitions on them?

Are the images on the server exactly 2GB each?

I think the extension differs on the parts of the ghost files. I doubt exactly one 2 gig file was created. Look for other *.G?? files. They are the other parts.

Something like Gmt or I forget.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

Gotit.
This has been a hair puller but has been resolved.

Used a floppy to upload the image and to download.

As a last resort I made a new image using a ghost easyboot cd.
Works perfectly.

Seems the master floppy is bad.
