I'm trying to image this laptop manually, it goes through PXE fine and
it gets to the menu where I pick "Starting Zenworks Imaging Maintenance".

I switch over to Alt-F2 to see the detailed progress, it goes through
"Starting udev... ok" and "loading basic drivers... ok" and then it
freezes when doing "Starting Hardware detection..."

The laptop model is a rebranded ECS BR45II7


I tried making a boot cd and turning off acpi, but that didn't work.

Any ideas?
