Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management Support Pack 2 - ZCM 11 SP2 Imaging

High-performance NTFS Tuxera driver (tntfs.ko) loaded.

Microsoft Windows XP Professional

AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) driver


After using the third-party NTFS driver to restore an XP image that was taken from a machine that had an AHCI driver active, the PC is not bootable, may even experience the BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death)


Workaround: ensure that the image is taken from a machine without an AHCI driver: Novell does not support imaging XP machines with AHCI if using the third-party NTFS driver.
