I have a HP DC510s (Single Processor) that I imaged using Ghost Solution Suite 2.5. I am trying to Deploy this image to a HP 500B (Dual Processor). I have ran a XP boot CD and ran "disable intelppm" this didn't seem to help.

I have also checked the BIOS and there is not a way to enable a IDE mode.?  I have also booted into safe mode and ran" HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Intelppm" and changed the value to 4.

Would Sysprep help?

Thanks all.

You changed hardware, its not going to allow the image. It will blue screen consistantly until you make an image specific to that hardware with the dual processor.

Would Acronis True Image or Acronis True Image or Acronis Snap Deploy 3 for PCs allow me to do this? I am trying to get away from installing and moving documents, settings, programs to the 500B

Thanks.

More like Acronis Universal restore with its echo workstation and echo server installed. Then you can possibly create an image and restore to dissimilar hardward. It allows changes to the HAL on the fly. Here is a link.

Also the enterprise version of Backup executive system restore from Symantec is supposed to do dissimilar too.
