Deploying Universal Image with Ghost Solution Suite 2.0 and sysprep. Problem with D600.
Posted on 2007-03-29
Alright so here is my problem. I've been handed the task of creating one universal image for all the systems at our company. We run on dell leases so we have quite a few different systems making it a monster task to maintain an image for each system. I am working with the newest ghost solution suite 2.0 and sysprep on Windows XP. I am extremely close to having it work great but have a hold up. The last test I ran was deploying my universal image to a GX270, GX280, GX620 for desktops along with latitudes' X1, D600, and D610 for laptops. I deployed to all of these at the same time in one task and every system worked perfectly except for the D600. Every other system recognized its correct drivers and worked great. But the D600 when it was done recieving the image went to a blank screen. I turned it off and powered it on after waiting for about 5 minutes. It came up to the boot option screen of safe mode, last known good config, and start normally.
If I choose last known good config and gave the error that Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\system32\config\SYSTEM
If I choose start windows normally it would just freeze.
And if I choose safe mode it would start loading the drivers and freeze at the agpCPQ.sys driver.
I am confused as to why all of my other systems in this test including the other laptops worked great? I find it hard to believe that there is that big of a hardware difference between the D600 and the D610. Might there be something with the HAL files? My image?
And to provide you with as much information as I can, this universal image was originally created with a Dell GX620. It has the set up we want for our company's systems and I also added the sysprep files and the driver cache on it.
I would greatly appreciate any help you can give me on this as I've been working on this for a while and know that I'm so close to being done.
