Windows XP Slow Boot after Imaging

Hi guys,

I am creating a new SOE for a Toshiba Tecra M10 at the moment for 110 laptops. All the same specs.

I have made up my image ready to go. Running a dream. I created a Image in Ghost 8 (Disk to Image). Then imaged one of the others to find it boots up ok then gets to the Black Screen just past  the "Windows XP" Screen with the green bars and sits there for about 2 mins. Then finally boots into Windows with no errors. Is there a easy way to see what is causing this?

I have done a CCleaner Reg scan. Tried new drivers. Payed around with msconfig.

The Tecra M10 is a pretty new laptop so there is not much out there on it.

Thanks.

Actually yes it does the first time it boots up. But doesn't specify what it finds just says Restart for changes to take effect. I am not sure if that is what is causing the problem though due to it starting slow straight after imaging.

Is there a way to see what driver it changed?

Also both Bios setting on both machines are reset to defaults. So I dont know why it would want to install a driver. Unless its for a identifying bit of hardware?

Start fresh. If possible, do a clean install on one laptop and get the image and try again. Possibly something went buggy in the image.

The problem was the Nvidia Drivers that came from factory. Have removed them and reinstalled the newest drivers from Nvidias Website and it has fixed the problem. Have notified Toshiba and they are looking into a fix for it. The driver intalling after imaging was the DVD Burner. It has its own Identifying item that Windows thinks is a new piece of hardware.
