They are named descriptively by their creation date with a maximum of 8 characters such as 09june07.gho. If the image is larger than 2GB Ghost will create an additional file for every additional 2GB. Those files will be named the same as the first with the last two characters replaced with numbers that count up sequentially and a .ghs extension. An example would be 09june01.ghs and 09june02.ghs.
If the BartPE disk doesn’t have the drivers required for your network card it will display that it cannot detect a NIC. IT recommends pulling images from external hard drives or thumb drives to avoid the need for updating drivers or loading network support. If you absolutely require the network drivers you can provide the actual files (not the .exe install file) to IT and they will be added to the boot disk image.

There are divisions (Academic Affairs and Admin & Finance for example) that have many groups where sharing one image is not realistic. Can additional images be purchased? What if the additional images are stored on the divisions' own equipment?
Additional images (beyond the two initial images) may be created for a division for a $150 one-time setup fee per image, regardless of storage location.
The date of the request for the creation of any additional images will be recorded by IT and the originator of the request will be contacted by IT in late May of each year to determine if they will continue to use imaging services for the following fiscal year.
In the event that one or both of the first two requestors within a division no longer wish to participate, imaging services will be provided free of charge for the next request(s) from that division.
A $50 yearly maintenance fee will be charged to the requesting department/unit for each image in excess of the two initial images allowed per division.
Fees will be billed via IT Billing Services during the July billing cycle.
