Dell poweredge 1650 and norton ghost

\015 I am trying to use norton ghost and a bootable floppy disk to image a hard drive on a dell poweredge 1650 server. The operating system that has been installed on the machine is windows xp (for now). When I boot from the floppy disk I get the error message that the NDIS enviroment is not configured correctly as the boot disk is seeing the two network cards (intel pro 1000 cards) on the pe 1650 but cannot decide which card to connect to. I get the advice to add SLOT= either device 0x0022 pr 0x0024. I tried it in a few places in the protocol.ini, but nothing works. What I am doing wrong and how to I fix this problem?\015

Answers :

Okay, hate to answer my own question. Where I got confused was with the protocol.ini file that is used in Norton Ghost on a boot disk to load the network information, including the network protocol to be used (netbeui in this case) and what network card was to be used. Thus the last part of the protocol.ini file is where I needed to add the missing information. I needed to add the slot = required value to identify what one of two network cards in the dell PowerEdge 1650 was to be used to connect to the ghost server (in this case, the two cards were idenified by a number such as 0x0110 and 0x0120). The strange thing is that I also noticed that there is a third network port on the back of the server, but I am not sure if it is active or not, but nothing came of as of yet. But I am now happy to report that I can connect to the ghost server to image the machine I need to image.

I have a working Dell Poweredge 2650 with 2 x Xeon 1.8Gig processors, 5 x 36GB hard disks, running Windows 2003 Server. I have recently purchased a newer Poweredge 2650 with the same configuration except that it has 2 x Xeon 3Gig processors. I would like to transfer the OS and data from the ''old'' (slower) 2650 onto the ''new'' (faster) 2560 to improve general performance. The idea is to do it in one day, starting with the OS and data on the old 2650 and finishing the day with the OS and data
