Try the following to solve this issue:
- Check with the manufacturer of the Ethernet card (NIC) on the target system for a driver update and install it.
- Ensure you are not running a mixed-duplex environment.
- Try running IFD from a batch file and use the IOBS option (as explained in the IFD documentation):
Image for DOS V2: Use the /iobs command line option or specify IOBD=1 in IFD.INI (in the applicable section).
Image for DOS V1: Set the value to A to automatically determine the best value, or to 1, 2 or 3. For example: set IFD=IOBS:A
