Acronis Snap Deploy Boot Disk Woes

A while back I ran into some issues trying to boot a client PC through Acronis SnapDeploy:

  1. v3 boot disk wouldn't see HDD but saw NIC
  2. v4 boot disk would see HDD but not NIC
  3. v4 PXE was same as above

Eventually I concluded that the driver for NIC on v3 boot disk was dodgy.

Solution:
  • Download Windows AIK 1.6 for XP/Vista
  • Install on Acronis machine.
  • Build PE boot for PXE and add drivers for the NIC
  • Boot from PXE
