How do I capture an image for mass deployment using sccm

When I use Sysprep (Windows XP SP3) I use the following command

C:\>SYSPREP\Sysprep.exe -generalize -quiet -mini -reseal

I then capture the image using imageX in the Windows PE enviromant with the following command.

C:\>WAIK\imagex.exe /capture c: z:\images\NEWIMAGE.wim "Drive C" /verify

In this example I have already mapped a drive (Z:) to my network location where I will save the image.

Once the image is captured and I set a task sequence to deploy it, the machine will go into a reboot loop once the task sequence finishes.

I'm stuck as I don't understand why the machine reboots as I have the drivers applied during the task sequence and sysprep has removed all SIDS

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Could be the diskpart uberbug: http://www.deployvista.com/Blog/tabid/70/EntryID/17/Default.aspx
(Note: Applies to WinPE 2.x, whether BDD or SCCM)
Also, when you deploy the image, try hitting F8 and then disable "Automatic Restart on Failure".  This might then give you a BSOD which might give you more information where the problem is.

I've found the answer, it is due to the mass storage drivers.

The way to resolve it is by using Sysprep.exe -BMSD command to build the driver database.

Now i just need to get my head around that!

Thank you for the speedy response though Aleinss
