You need to know how to create a Windows PE Ghost Boot CD or USB flash drive that is capable of performing a DeployAnywhere task.

Click Start > Programs > Symantec Ghost > Ghost Boot Wizard. Proceed through the Ghost Boot Wizard as follows:
Note: Building the Windows PE CD (or ISO) or building a Windows PE Flash Drive could take up to 10 minutes to complete. The Ghost Boot Wizard will display a Finish button when the process has completed.

Part 3: Evaluating the Client Machine to ensure that the appropriate Mass Storage Controller and NIC driver are included in the Driver Database.
If the evaluation process returned a "success" message, type the following command to begin the retargeting process:
4. If the evaluation process was not successful, make note of the missing driver(s) and proceed to Part 4
Part 4: Adding missing drivers to the Windows PE Boot Disk
Note: You do not need to restore the image a second time before proceeding with Part 4. Since the image has already been restored, you'll only need to reboot the client machine with the new Windows PE disk and then run the DeployAnywhere command line. As long as you do not attempt to boot into Windows before the DeployAnywhere process is successful, you will not need to restore the image a second time.
Note: Before beginning this step, download the drivers that the evaluation reported were missing. You'll be adding these drivers to the Windows PE Boot package in this step.
