An image would be made after I install on this machine and had it all setup. Due to how badly Windows handles such moves we keep the images only for each machine. You may encounter a new or old IT staffer that wants to try this again but just keep them on a short leash. That is, only allow them a few hours to try it then cut them off. Make them make it work and move to the next task.
I'm taking a ghosted image to another machine. On the image I have my device drivers set with static IP (e.g. Local Area Connection 1 is the static IP I want). I have two local area connections, 1 and 2, and 1 is what I want it to be while 2 is a default Microsoft IP.
I put that image onto another system and after loading it I don't have Local Area Connections 1 and 2 anymore but Local Area Connections 3 and 4. When I first boot, the computer says Device Drivers Successfully Installed.
Why am I losing Local Area Connections 1 and 2 and thus creating 3 and 4 which both have default Microsoft IPs? I want to retain the Local Area Connection 1 that has the static IP that I desire.
Let me know what additional information may be needed.
