Boot packages that support Remote Installation Service (RIS)

Ghost Boot Wizard Remote Installation Service (RIS) leverages the Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) feature of PC-98 specified computers to provide a remote installation service for Windows 2000. Symantec Ghost provides a cloning solution suitable for deployment or migration of any computer operating system with specific support for Microsoft Windows. Symantec Ghost also works with Windows systems prepared with the Microsoft SysPrep tool.

You can create a RIS boot package in the Symantec Ghost Boot Wizard only when running on a Windows 2000/2003/XP server with RIS installed. No floppy disk is required. An entry appears in the RIS menu.

Note: This option only appears if Microsoft Remote Installation Service is installed on your computer.
