After creating a master image PC - we then sysprep and clone the PC using Imagecast.  On deploying the image to new hardware the chkdsk /f gives an invalid security identifier message for every file on the volume.  A message then appears that this is not an Authentic version of windows XP.  Any ideas?

Try this:

manually update a single installation, and see if this helps (manually updating the key) - then you may find you have a bad image...

Hi,  We have an image from a week ago that works fine with the same valid VL number.  The problem has only started occurring since we have added a few minor applications.  The master image will chkdsk /f with no problem but when I sysprep and download to a new PC the chkdsk /f produces screens of these "invalid security id" errors.

We never did come up with a fix for this.  I eventually had to go back to an archived image and bring it up to date.  So far we have had no problems with this image.  Thanks for all comments.
