PROBLEM: Computer does not show up in ConsoleOne and you want to image it.

SOLUTION: Use a PXE disk and while it is doing DHCP, press and hold ctrl+alt until a menu with a blue screen pops-up. Then select Maintenance Mode, and wait until you get to a prompt that will look like this:


Then type


Press Enter, then erase all the infomation, then select ok.

Then type

img auto

and there you go -- your computer is now imaging.

After it is done type

init 6

Press Enter, and it will restart your computer!
