sysprep.inf problem with Ghost-8
Posted on 2004-10-02
Problem 1 - I have prepared a sysprep.inf answer file which works mostly fine when I create an image and then roll it out. I remove the SIDS at the same time with sysprep. But there are things that happen after the PC has received the new image and is running the mini start up wizard.
I get a message which says something like "cannot find the file "coure.fon"". I then have to put in the win2000 CD and locate the "coure.fon" file under I386. What is this file and why am I being asked for it? What can I do about it? (it may just be the 1st of a number of files that are being copied from the CD - it finished very quickly though)
Problem 2 - We have identical computers except for 5 which are also the same make but a "slightly" different motherboard. When I roll out the image to these, I am asked to install the LAN controller drivers. How can I include these drivers so that they are found and installed automatically?
Problem 3 - The CD key that I have placed in the answer file is not being read and used. Instead I get asked for the key again. Why??
I have checked the sysprep.inf files under "all-users\programdata\symantec\ghost on the Ghost Console PC. They have the key typed in.
Here is a copy: should the key be in quotes maybe?
