Using VMWARE to sysprep images.

First question is during the sysprep wizard what do I chose for the answer file type? XP home or Professional?

Second problem here is that using the sysrep on xp home or ipro works fine, however on MCE 2005 afte being sent over to the new computer via ghosting the OS loops at start up. I'm sure there is a BSOD in there but too quicky it shows and I can't read it.... sooo how do I sysprep MCE 2005?

MCE is actually XP Pro with additions. I haven't really sysprepped MCE though, and am not sure if that works. If you get BSODs at bootup, you should be able to view it if you press f8 before windows tries to start, so you get it's boot menu. There you should then see one option where you can stop the autorestart on failure, and then you should be able to view the BSOD.

As most BSODs also write a dmp file, bot the machine with a UBCD4WIN or a Linux LiveCD like Mepis or Puppy, look for the *.dmp files, zip them and upload them using the following Link:
