Hello I need some help.

I want to make an image of a machine with altiris.
Here there are no problems, but when I load sysprep on the machine, and try to get altiris to take a image, the PC starts up with the sysprep guide.

I have tried to manually select network boot and choose altiris managed pc.
but this dosent help either.

Is there anybody who knows of this problem, or maby where I can get a guide.

Thanks :-)

Here are the general steps:

1. Copy the Sysprep utilities and other necessary files (such as drivers, HAL files, sysprep.inf, etc) to the client machine.

2. Run sysprep.exe with the necessary command-line switches

3. shut the system down and capture the image (important note here: DO NOT use a standard imaging task unless you select "Do Not Boot to Windows" AND have a DOS job before it. The reason is that the AClient will want to do pre-imaging configuration of the computer before it shuts down, and you don't want anything to happen after Sysprep runs).

Steps 1 and 2 I have no problem with, but step 3.....

Witch task should I choose???

I have read that if I go to "diagnostic mode" when booting and exit, I can run the Rdeploy, but is this the way to do it????

Normally what I've done is create a boot floppy using their Boot Floppy Creator, and booted the machine with that that floppy.

I set it to be a Network boot disk, connecting to the Altiris eXpress server's Windows share. At that point I just run amouse and rdeploy from the DOS prompt, throw the image up to the server, and use it from there.
