Can I distribute Windows XP Sysprep on machines with different chipsets?


I'm trying to distribute a preinstallad Windows XP configuration with som apps in it. I'm using the Sysprep tool to ready the installation for distribution, and its all working fine!

My quiestion is, if I can use the same "syspreped" Windows for different chipsets by pointing at a driver library with the right .inf and .cat files in it?

I have tried to do this but never could figure it out.

It is HAL related, and I always resolved with an XP repair.
Yes, you can use the same sysprep, but you wil lhave to run a repair every time.

Thats as far as I've gotten...

The thing is, when you run a normal windows xp installation (unattended or normal from the cd) the installation automaticly identifyes and installs the right chipset drivers, I was woundering if the same is possuble in my case...

Another way of getting around the issue, is of course to build mutilpe images, one for each chipset, and then have a script that identifyes the chipset, and points to the right image... But I've yet to find a way of identifying the chipset under the WinPE envirement...
