Sysprep not installing drivers

Hi
Having Issues with deploying an image via WDS and installing the drivers part.

The sysprep is being read correctly up until it needs to install the drivers.  Once the machine has finished building I have to maually go to Device Manager, click on the failed driver and click Re-install.  The path set in the OemDriversPath section of the sysprep folder is correct because I dont have to specify a location when istalling the drivers manually, it already knows where to look!!

What I can't understand is why if the required files are there in the correct location and are successfully installed manually why during the image deployment are the drivers not installed??

What am I missing?

Does the process always bomb on all drivers or just some of them? I had a problem when doing multiple machine images (especially with video cards) if the extracted drivers from different versions files had the same names.

Bombs on all, must be the correct drivers though because they install fine if click the button to install them manually from the locations pre-specified in the sysprep file
