Creating image for Dell GX 620's and GX520, but having problems with USB


      I'm currently trying to create an image of Windows XP to roll out on my companies Dell GX520's and GX620's.  I'm using a Dell 620 as the source computer to image and get the image created just fine.  I'm using windows native drivers to load and plan to load computer-specific drivers separately so the .inf is simple and straight-forward.  The problem is when I re-image to another computer (both types) the image goes through and windows boots into setup... but I can't use the mouse or keyboard to click or tab through the setup instructions.  Any suggestions as to why this is and what I can do to get usb keyboard/mous support?

I've had that issue too. I ended up having to unplug the kb/mouse and replug them in, sometimes to a diff usb port. then they would start working after a minute or two. Sometimes even longer, just so the USB drivers would enable then after re-connecting mouse/kb it would reload the driver for them.  I'm sure there is a better way, I never had to do it more than a few times though because I ghost an image that is setup all the way so I don't have to deal with that anymore :)

Thanks for the advice.  I tried it, but it didn't work.  Although on the second try at imaging I had keyboard control.  FM at its finest.  :)
