My company is preparing for an XP rollout using Sysprep and Ghostcast. I am looking for a way to automate the process of renaming the w/s. Can a udf file be used with Sysprep and if so how do I configure it? Or is there another way?

Also I would like to use only one image. We have all Dell products, GX110, 220, 260, 270. I created a base sysprep on a GX270 and extracted but did not install the Dell drivers. It works fine on the 260 and 270 but when I load it to a 110 I get a black screen and nothing. I tried three different machines.

I thought it might be a video problem since the 110's have an Nvidia TNT in addition to the onboard video. I removed the Nvidia and set the bios to the onboard card but this did not resolve the issue.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds about right...have you pointed the drivers path in the registry to the appropriate drivers path under c:\? Also you may get a stop 0x00...7B error after you get past that stage. There is a great knowledge base article that describes how to overcome that (KB271965).

You need to build your image on one of the lower machines. An image from a GX270 will not work on a GX1p, but an image from a GX1p will work on a GX270. The 260/270's use a more advanced HAL. HAL's can go up levels, but not down.
