SYSPREP does not use SYSPREP.INF created by setupmgr.exe
Posted on 2005-04-07
Help. I have configured sysprep (verion 2.0) within C:\sysprep for a WinXP SP2 machine. I have all the required files including setupcl.exe, sysprep.exe, i386 folder, sysprep.inf within c:\sysprep.
I am trying to automate and have sysprep automate the complete setup, add to domain with unique PC name etc. I cannot seem to get this working. After generating the sysprep.inf file. I douleclick sysprep.exe and click Use Mini-Setup and then RESEAL. The machine shuts down but then goes through the complete MINI setup which includes EULA aggreement, admin PW, etc. I have added the following in the sysprep file:
OEMDuplicatorstring="HP Evo xw6000"
OrgName="SPECIAL HOUSE plc"
Has anyone got any idea on what I am doing wrong. I have read all the MS reference and I can't understand what I am missing. Any feedback would be most appreciated.
