    I setup a ghost server the other day...

    I have been able to create an image from a test machine to the server and have been able to restore it using a boot CD.

    I'm trying to restore an image using PXE.

    I used a guide I found to create a PXE server using DeployCenter in the Ghost Suite. I followed all the instructions and created a virtual boot floppy.

    When I try and boot off the NIC, I can grab an IP, but get these errors:

    PXE-T01: File Not Found
    PXE-E3B: TFTP Error - File Not Found

    I've been googling since yesterday and cannot seem to find what file is missing and where it should be...

    Any ideas??

    The missing file would be the PXE boot loader menu. Are you using 3COM PXE server? The last time we loaded ghost server, it was using 3COM's PXE server.

    Edit: The file name is probably 3compxe.mnu in your TFTPBOOT folder.

    I am using RIS on Windows 2000 Server. I was trying to use Deploy Center instead of the 3Com PXE server.

    I ended up using both. I am now able to boot to the RIS setup menu and I put an option in there for ghost so I can go there too...

    As a long time ghost user, I'll never go back. I love that it does a differential image - great for deploying.

    I still use ghost for single computer users (home use for example).
