Ghostcast issue

jhnshields
I used GhostCast Server to download an image to a pc I created from an identical pc. It said the transfer completed successfully, but when I restart the pc it goes to the XP reboot page. Why didn't it create the image on the new pc?

    Did you run Sysprep before you created the image? If you run it with the reseal option, it prepares the PC for cloning. After you ghosted the image and start the targe PC, it should go through the mini setup which prompts for the Windows product key.

    I'm working with a ghost image and having similar issue. I have run Sysprep, and "sealed" the image machine, but target machine (exact same specs) won't start in Mini-Setup/Windows, and pop up with "blue screen". Any advice appreciated.

    Try using switche /noide when you image. In the end, try running a repair of windows from the install CD. This fixes the problem if the machines are identical with the same chipset. Also, you might try to run a CRC on the image from ghost. They have a utility built in to check the image stability. You can do this to an existing image regardles of where it resides.
