I've been tasked with creating a standard image for our desktop enviornment. The good news is that all of our systems are Dell computers, the bad news is that we probably have around 20 different models.

What I need a little help on is creating the sysprep image with all the drivers required for these systems. I've gone through some of the whitepapers available on the MS site, but they don't cover this in detail.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Well I'm missing some stuff in here. When I get to work Monday if I remember I'll post my sysprep.inf file that I use for my Ghost images. This is close though but missing some stuff. To do the drivers PNP stuff you need that OEMPnpDriversPath I showed below. Just put a drivers folder on your c drive and have a folder corresponding like Evo550, Evo 530, etc.

To do sysprep, you can extract the folder deploy from the windows 2000 cd. Run Setup manager in that and that'll create a sysprep.inf and bat file for ya. After you're done with that, add in the extra details like Product key and oem drivers path.
