windows xp will show the old install date

Hi,

I am installing the OS from image. My concern is that whether XP original install date will show the image creation date or image deployment date? eg. I have created the image on 1/1/2011. I have deployed the image on 1/15/2011. So which date it will show as OS original install date?

Thanks for your help.

It depends on what type of image you are deploying from, so I need a bit more info.

If you build XP on date A
Then you take an image using eg Norton Ghost on date B
Then you deply on date C

The original install date will be A

The original install date is created when the image is created. So the older date is what will show up.

Yes, it will show the original OS install date: 1/1/2011

If you want to show the date its installed, then instead of making an image, I'd recommend making an unattended install.  Check out nLite for making unattended installs simple.
