Ghost image created in VMware to physical machine
Posted on 2007-10-04
I'm trying to deploy some XP images made in VMware Workstation to some physical machines (all the same model). I sealed them with sysprep before using Ghost to image and deploy.
When booting off a physical machine for the first time, it displays the Windows XP loading window, then just resets. Booting into safemode, it seems to stop on agpCPQ.sys before resetting.
The HAL used in the image is APIC, and the destination PCs support MPs (the default OS pre-installed on them is using it), which I believe is compatible with APIC. I also loaded the mass-storage drivers with sysprep...
I've been told by someone more experienced with these tools, that I need to create the image on the machines, however just want a second opinion as I don't want to have to create these images again...
