Ghost cloned XP SP3 will not allow logon
Posted on 2008-10-13
We have several Compaq 6710b Intel based notebooks. I have had to build (XP Professional) one from scratch as all the HP security/bloatware interfered with the operation of some of our mission specific software. After applying all updates (SP3, driver and software) the machine is stable and all our software is working. I made it standalone and set it back to DHCP and ghosted. I have installed the image on another notebook and it boots to logon with no problems however, when I logon it accepts my password, starts the logon process then immediately logs off back to the logon screen. Same thing in safe mode.
Is this a SP3 issue, can I resolve it without having to repair the install?
