Sysprep Image asking for iaStor.sys during OEM driver install.

I am having a problem with the sysprep process loading the mass storage driver during setup.  The issue happens when the system is installing the OEM drivers, a dialog box appears asking for the iaStor.sys file.  If you click the drop down the location of this file is already listed,  choose it,  hit enter, and then the installation will finish.  This is happening on Optiplex 755's and 760's.  This does not occur on  GX260,GX270, GX280, GX620, 745, 780.  Obviously some of the older workstations do not have a mass storage controller but the ones in questions do.   Short of this problem the syspreped image will load all other drivers on all of the models listed with out a hitch.

Sorry.. try commenting out the copy files portion of the inf file for iastor. Sorry. Also have you tried re-injecting the driver into the installation?

Commented out the copyfiles lines but I am still getting the same screen during the setup,  again all I have to do is use the drop down and select the location of the file.

Could you elaborate on what you mean by "re-injecting the driver into the installation"

I was able to re-inject the driver using the 780,  this has resolved the issue thank you for your time.
