Cannot create bootable image after K2000 3.4 upgrade
We recently updated our K2000 to version 3.4. The boot image we have been using still boots fine but the "Error trying to boot to KBE - The password is invalid for \\x.x.x.x.\peinst" occurs. The simple work-around works fine listed in this post http://www.itninja.com/question/error-trying-to-boot-to-kbe-the-password-is-invalid-for-x-x-x-x-peinst.
Creating a new boot image from the same machine the previous(working) image was taken from, results in an unbootable image. We have used a Dell & an Acer netbook to try and boot off this image. The result is:
Error: Unable to determine server ip address from dhcp
Error: Unable to mount K2000 share at \\x.x.x.x\peinst
We had all sorts of problems in the beginning getting the Acer netbooks (models 753, 533, 531) to boot off the K2000.
Not sure what my next move is...

Your Error: Unable to determine server ip address from dhcp shows that you probably are not even getting an IP on this box.
from the main menu open recovery and enter IPConfig /all and see if the nic drivers are loaded and if you have an IP. If you do have an IP I would check the dhcp options 66, 67, and 244 for the subnet you are on.
If you have not already done this. download the new media manager, the new one will have a "host login password" box in the upper right corner.
Place any network drivers you may need on the k2000 to add to the boot env in \\ikbox\kbe_windows_x64 or x86 directories under any sub directory (I created one myself so I know they are the drivers I placed there)
Upload your boot env using the new media manager putting the password from "general settings - driver/restore share password in.
After you upload your new env's make sure you go to the k2000 - settings & maintenance - general settings and change the default k2000 boot envs to the new ones.
