We are building Vista images that support various models of hardware and sysprep is failing to create the image.  A lot of time has gone into troubleshooting, duplicating hard drives prior to sysprep, identifying troublesome drivers etc.  The bottom line is that this is KILLING our productivity.  We didn't used to have this problem with XP.  When we successfully create the image, we then use ghost 7.5 on a server to load 20 machines on an internal net at a time.

My question is-- Is there an alternative to Sysprep to prepare the image?  Have other people run into this problem with Vista and found an alternative?  I am NOT involved in the nuts and bolts of this issue but our image creators continually wrestle with Sysprep and it just isn't working!!!!!

How are other people doing it?
