Windows 2000 or XP?

Did you clean out the drivers for keyboard/mouse/IDE?

nope, I'm trying the video drivers now as it 'stops' between the black character mode and the GUI mini-setup...

Sorry for the mix up. I didn't know you weren't getting into GUI-mode yet. Sounds like a driver issue.

Are you running sysprep with the -pnp switch?

not yet... I'm hoping to do without it as it slows the process down a bit.

of course, if it is the difference between working and not working...

Try this:

Clean up drivers before running SYSPREP:
Set keyboard to 'Standard 104-key'
Set Mouse to 'PS/2-compatible'
Set Video to 'Standard SVGA'
Set IDE to 'Standard IDE'

it isn't auto installing the OEM drivers...

sysprep.inf
-------------------------
[Unattended]
OEMSkipEula=Yes
OemPnpDriversPath=drivers\net;drivers\audio;drivers\video;drivers\Chipset;drivers\USB2
DriverSigningPolicy = Ignore

dir structure
-------------------------
c:\Drivers\Display\'lots of *.cat and *.inf files'

once it starts up, it prompts me for the drivers and if I direct it to c:\Drivers\Display it installs the drivers.

What am I doing wrong??

I find that if you re-sysprep a previous sysprep image that the device path gets appended to. I always reset the path with the following:
quote:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion]
"DevicePath"=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,\
00,74,00,25,00,5c,00,69,00,6e,00,66,00,00,00

Never install MS Office products from CDs!

Create an admin install on a shared drive and install from there. Otherwise users might get prompted to insert CDs. Also, you can install fixes to the admin install and then advertise the new package or apply the updated version via command-line on clients.

I still can't get the deployed image to get into the gui portion of mini-setup

it gets the character based progress bar to 100% and then nothing...

I've removed all the installed hardware devices as possible, but still nothing.

According to your step-by-step...

quote:
Uninstall all obvious hardware drivers
Empty trash
Defrag
Reboot
Image -------------------------------------------
Sysprep

If you reboot after the uninstall of drivers then PNP would put them back on reboot before the sysprep.

I found that on some images, I had to replace the ACPI HAL with a generic one and then set it back after.

ok... insert boot floppy
reboot

I did find this on Dell's site:

(reply)
I had the same sort of problem. I tracked it down to the machines that I was using to do a disk to disk ghost on were not using LBA translation to read the disk. The easiest way to fix it is to ghost the disks using a Dell desktop or alternatively try to find the disk translation setting in the BIOS and change it to LBA. To do this on the Compaq I was using I needed a BIOS upgrade. I would imaagine that the machine you are pushing the image to needs to be set to read the disk using LBA.


which is about what I'm experiencing. I'm going to dig up some other makes/models to test on, to see if the problem is just these new latitudes or that I just can't make an image.

I have some machines where it hangs on first boot after sysprep but if I just reboot, it goes OK the second time.

Go figure!

So I tried this from a different angle.

I built an image on the oldest PC I had, installed no 3rd party/OEM drivers and sysprepped it with:

sysprep -pnp -quiet -reboot -clean

now when I try it on the new Evo and Latitude, both BSOD on inaccessable boot device.

The Evo uses the 'standard 2 channel IDE controller'

Help.... [Frown]

The -clean switch shouldn't be used for Sysprep. It disables any boot devices that were loaded by the [SysprepMassStorage] section in the Sysprep.inf file. The command issues a stop command through Service Control Manager; any device that does not have hardware present responds to the command.

The -clean switch should only be used in the CMDLines.txt file to clean out unused drivers to help "imaged" PCs boot faster after being "sysprepped."
