add drivers to xp image in WDS
Posted on 2008-02-06
I've sucessfully stup wds, took the boot.wim file and placed it in boot images. created a new boot image to capture my xp machine. sysprepped my xp machine and sucessfully added the new xp.win file to install images. when i go to deploy this image to other pcs with different hardware, sound video, etc. i get the add new hardware wizard because it cant find the drivers.
when i sysprepped it, i was able to put the sysprep file on the wds server under the image location in a folder like $1\$oem$\sysprep\sysprep.inf. the sysprep file works perfectly when deploying the image to the same type of pc that the image wasbased on. all the answers get bypassed and work perfectly, eg.product key, timezone, etc.
ive looked around a bunch, and cant find a clear explanation of how to add drivers for other computer types. where are the drivers added, on the client tat getts sysprepped or on the server?
