I have a whitebox (self assembled) machine. It has a Gigabyte GA-K8N51GMF motherboard. The NIC is integrated, NVidia NIC. When attempting to take an image, it boots to the ZEN imaging CD but halts at the DHCP configuration screen and fails. I assumed it was the NIC so I placed a 3COM NIC into the machine and started over. Same result. It will not see the network.
I then took another machine(gateway E-2100), tried the same thing...it works without any issues.

This whitebox has XP installed and works fine on the network with either NIC. For some reason, Linux will not connect on the network with this system.

Does anyone have any insight on this issue?
