I am using Ghost 8.0 and sysprep to image a lab full of XP sp2 machines. I am trying to figure out a way to have my domain as the default domain after the process has completed. I wrotte a script that will edit the registry and do exactly what i want. I put it in GuiRunOnce, but you have to login for it run. Is there a way to get the script to run after the mini-setup? I have tried the UnAttended InstallFilesPath=C:\Sysprep\i386 thing, but have not been able to get it to work. I'm pretty new to imaging Windows machines so I may not have done it correctly. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey Knueven

Hmm yeah the unattented file should have work if it was copied into the right location.

I'll check my config and let you know

There are a couple ways to approach this.

If you already have the script you want to use complete, you could try to execute it during the GUI Install part of the Install. You can create a CMDLINES.txt inside the $OEM$ folder of the cd. It has a limited interface but you can call other files like a batch file to do the work for you.

You can also modify your WINNT.sif file and allow it to autologon. This can be created with the setupmgr.exe tool which comes with the Deploy Tools.

If I read your post correctly then you want to have the computer set to a certain domain. Windows Can add a computer to a domain for you. Again in the WINNT.sif file you can specify Domain, Domain Admin Login and Domain Admin Password. This however, brings up issues of security. Being that anyone with some computer knowledge could go in and see these secure admin passwords in plain text.

Make your script run as a startup script for your environment.
Then you setting will allways be persistant.
