To eliminate these types of problems I usually create a software package and install it on the computer from a network location before the sysprep. This way if you need to repair or install a new feature it will automatically find the installation files.

If you do the same it will save you from getting the CD and physically going to the computer.

Here is how to create an Office package.

one more thing regarding sysrep

i got a ghost image and i want to add the driver to it how can i add folder to gho ?

Thanks
Ivano ViolaSystem AdministratorCommented:
You can't. You'll need to put the image onto a computer, install the driver and re-sysprep it. Unfortunately there is no short way for adding the driver to the ghost image.

evemt if i use the ghost explorer it will not work ?

if i want to re sysrep i need to run the sysrep again after the creation ?

right ?

Thanks
Ivano ViolaSystem AdministratorCommented:
Ghost explorer only lets you open and view the ghost image. Yes, after installing the driver in the image you'll need to sysprep it again.
Ivano ViolaSystem AdministratorCommented:
I meant after installing the driver on the computer you'll need to sysprep it again.
