INTEL AMT Rev. A (10 Nov 2008)
HP Compaq DC7900 Small Form Factor

I have about 5000 HP Compaq DC7900 computers that are shipping and I need to find a way to automatically provision them.

My windows image is using "My Sysprep" to automatically name them based on the serial number
I.E. XXXXSerialNo
This information has to be within the AMT Configuration along with the domain name and AMT ME password.

This is about a 5-10 minute process for each computer.
Afterwords I know these can be re-provisioned automatically though for the first setup I'm need to automate as much or all of this setup as possible.

Initially I would setup them up in SMB mode as all the pieces are not inplace for enterprise mode though I would move there quickly as possible.

Ideally I'd like to start with Enterprise Mode.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You should be able to have Sysprep run "mini set-up" to prompt a physical user to enter the appropriate Host name on the first boot.

    Is this possible in your situation?

    Sysprep doesn't correlate to Intel AMT Provisioning

    I have located an example sysprep file which installs AMT drivers and prompts the user for the "Computer Name" on the first boot.

    FullName="Your Company"
    OrgName="Your Company"


    And to make 1 image work for ANY NUMBER amount of PC's use the following line:

    For example mine looks like this!:
    OemPnPDriversPath=drivers\Sata;drivers\Audio\ADISoundmax;dri vers\Audio\ADISoundmaxHD;drivers\Audio\ADISoundmaxHDLaptops\ SMAXWDM;drivers\Audio\ESSAllegro;drivers\Cardbus\O2Micro;dri vers\MediaCardReader\HPMediaCardReader;drivers\Chipset\Intel ;drivers\Modem\AgereSoftModem;drivers\Modem\GatewayModem;dri vers\Network\Broadcom;drivers\Network\Intel\Pro100VE;drivers \Network\Intel\Pro1000;drivers\Video\Intel\865-915;drivers\Video\Intel\845;drivers\Video\Intel\965;drivers\ Video\Ati\Mobility9600-7500;drivers\Video\Ati\Mobility9000;drivers\WLAN\IntelProWir eless;drivers\Fingerprint\TPM;drivers\Fingerprint\Drivers;dr ivers\QuickLaunch\;drivers\Audio\Realtek;drivers\BlueTooth;d rivers\3DDriveGuard;drivers\AMT\ACM-HECI;drivers\AMT\LMS_SOL;drivers\Video\nVidia\NVS280;drivers \SCSI\Adaptec
    TargetPath=\Winnt (This makes windows install into c:\winnt, don't do that, my company is retarded for it, it should be \Windows)

    I know the drivers will be incorrect for your own hardware but can you use the same concept to have mini set up ask the user for the Host Name during the "mini set up" portion of the first boot?

    Or have I misunderstood your issues?

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Gidds99,

    This is some good information for Sysprep.
    I'm talking about Intel AMT ME Client accessed through CTRL+P

    Any help on that?
