BraytonAK Posted September 5, 2006 Share Posted September 5, 2006 I'm looking for suggestions on how to speed the deployment of systems in an environment where there are all different kinds of systems. AMD systems, Intel systems, new systems, old systems. We're using Windows XP Pro on the systems. I've used Microsoft's "Sysprep" tool to prepare a system for imaging. I've even tried without using Sysprep. What happens is that we can make a Ghost image that works on identical systems (chipset, etc). If the image is taken to any other machine, even those that would appear to be identical, the system will not boot. Even in safe mode, they appear to stop on MUP.sys, whatever that is. If I do a repair install of Windows, it removes all the Windows Updates, meaning you have to apply those all over again, defeating the purpose of imaging. Is there some kind of fail-safe way to image them, even safer than safe mode? As it stands, it can take 8 hours to get a system ready to deploy. Argh!
