SysPrep v. 1.1, Win2000, and Ghost 6.5....Ghost freezes while creating generic image.

I'm in the process of creating a generic image for deployment on Dell GX 240s, 260s, and 270s.  I've added all the mass storage controllers that might be required and I've placed (what I believe to be) all the PNP drivers in a directory referenced in the OemPnPDriversPath of the  [Unattended] section.  After running sysprep, I go into Ghost 6.5 and attempt to boot up the image, and the process stalls about 40% into the process.  No error messages, no beeps, no blue screens, it simply freezes.  I've been working on this for two consecutive summers (I'm a summer intern), any ideas on where I could start?

Does the PC just lock up?

Have you tried on differnet PCs and differnet CD media?

The whole process just freezes, Ghost will typically get to around 40% of the imaging process and then dies out.  I haven't tried the other PCs yet.  I ran sysprep without the -pnp switch, perhaps I should've done that?

Yes, the -pnp option is wise however if its only getting to 40% in Ghost and the locking up its not the Sysprep part thats the problem, its the .GHS file or the PC.

I would burn another ghost cd and use different media, or even slave the Hard Drives and do a Disk to disk image and that will rule out the media.
