Once the NIC template has been obtained, copy the .dos file and .ini files located in the following folder to the desktop: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application. Data\Symantec\Ghost\Template\
Using Windows Explorer copy the "*.DOS" and "*.INI" files to the "Net" folder created on the Windows desktop.
Go to step 17.
Add network drivers only to this VDF:
Download and unpack (if needed) the OEM-supplied NDIS2 (or DOS) driver (e.g. *.DOS file) from the manufacturer of the network interface card and place them on the desktop.
Create a new notepad file name titled: "protocol.ini" and save it to the desktop that includes the following text: [protman] drivername=PROTMAN$ [pktdrv] drivername=PKTDRV$ bindings=nic intvec=0x60 chainvec=0x66 [nic] drivername =<driver_name>$ Where "
: is the first eight characters of the filename of the OEM-supplied "NDIS2 *.DOS" file. (e.g. if the file name of the OEM-supplied NDIS2 driver is B57.DOS then the drivername value within the "protocol.ini" field would be "drivername = b57$").
Using Windows Explorer copy the "*.DOS" and "*.INI" files to the "Net" folder created on the Window's desktop.
Drag and drop the "Net" and "Ghost" sub-folders from the windows desktop into VF editor.
Drag and drop out of VF editor to the windows desktop "autoexec.bat" and "config.sys" files and then click Yes if prompted to copy files to desktop.
Using Notepad, edit the "autoexec.bat" and "config.sys" files so that they contain the following:
AUTOEXEC.BAT @echo off SET TZ=GHO+08:00 prompt $p$g \net\netbind.com if exist MOUSE.COM MOUSE.COM echo Loading... cd \ghost echo Loading... GHOST.EXE
CONFIG.SYS DEVICE=\net\protman.dos /I:\net DEVICE=\net\dis_pkt.dos DEVICE=\net\<name_of_dos_driver> LASTDRIVE = Z this is the name of name of the OEM-supplied NDIS2 DOS Network interface card driver that will be used by the client of this *.VFD (e.g. B57.DOS)
Click Saveto save the changes made to "autoexec.bat" and "config.sys" files within notepad, then drag and drop the files back into the "VFEditor" window.
Click OK to inject files and Yes on each file to "Overwrite existing files."
Click File and select Save to save the changes made to "*.VFD file."
The "*.VFD file" is now ready to be tested.
The "*.VFD file"
can be use to:
Deploy Center’s PXE configuration utility,
Creating a floppy disk emulated CD.
Packaging within a quick boot executable created with "Symantec Boot Disk Builder."
