I've been using Ghost Corporate 8.0 for a while now. I've had it working in our lab of 19. Now though, we just replaced 6 of our machines with brand new Dell Precisions. So, I pushed the image from our year-old Optiplexes. It cloned fine and says the SID change was fine. But, then on restart, the machines blue screened saying windows wouldn't start and check for a virus or something.

My assumption is drivers are missing and that's the problem. Does that make sense? I've tried starting in Safe Mode, from the last good start, etc., but nothing works. Here are some very obvious differences between the machines:

Different NICs, but I"ve installed the new DOS drivers in Ghost and it works.
The image machines are all IDE, but the new Precisions (targets) are SATA hard drives (this is my assumption as to the problem)

So, if you think drivers are the problem, is there any way for me to create a special config group for the 6 new machines and push the drivers to those that they need so this can work without creating a second image machine?

somehow i dont think you can deploy the old image to them no matter how many changes you make
the new machines will have new mainbaord chipsets and probably be pci express, the cpu's may have emt64 supprt, the hard drives are definately different - there are too many changes for windows to be happy with
if it were me i wouldnt consider modifying an old image
