Hi,

We have a Windows XP image with all software and drivers loaded. Before giving it to the end users we would like to run "sysprep -reseal" for regenerating the SIDs. I created a sysprep answer file using setupmgr utility and placed it under c:\sysprep folder. Also I copied the contents of deploy.cab (sysprep.exe etc.) to the c:\sysprep\ folder. The content of the answer file is,

----------------------

;SetupMgrTag
[Unattended]
OemSkipEula=Yes

[GuiUnattended]
AdminPassword=*
EncryptedAdminPassword=NO
OEMSkipRegional=1
OEMDuplicatorstring=rel1
TimeZone=190
OemSkipWelcome=1

[UserData]
ProductID=FDGAF-DHDGS-JHFJD-HJKDH-KHKDG
FullName="HCT"
OrgName="HP"
ComputerName=host2

[SetupMgr]
DistFolder=C:\sysprep\i386
DistShare=whistlerdist

[Identification]
JoinWorkgroup=WORKGROUP

[Networking]
InstallDefaultComponents=Yes
------------------------

I run the following command from c:\sysprep

sysprep -reseal -quiet -reboot

However, upon reboot I am being prompted for entering each and everything that I have already supplied with the sysprep.inf file. (EULA, License, hostname, admin password etc and as many as 10 screens). But, I want the system to startup by itself with out prompting me and should take the inputs from the sysprep.inf file.

Am I missing something??

Pl. help.

Thanks,
Karthik S S

Hmmm, I could be wrong but all you need to do is run the sysprep.bat that the setupmgr utility creates with your answer file. The sysprep itself will strip the sids so no need to use that -reseal command. I could be wrong... I don't think you need those other commands either. Just run the bat and make sure the answer file is with it. It'll reboot and then image it.

is XP's sysprep different then 2ks? or am I wrong because I am still under the impression that sysprep strips the SIDs so it would regenerate the SIDs anyway without those commands? I don't use any of those commands and I don't get prompted for anything unless if using RIS and intiating that.

Sysprep 2.0 (XP Version) is different to Sysprep 1.1 (2K Version). With 1.1 you didn't need to add any switches unless you needed to do anything special. With 2.0 you need to add some switches. In my environment we setup the image including drivers and programs and so on. Then we place the contents of deploy.cab, a modified sysprep.inf and the i386\LANG directory in c:\sysprep. We then run sysprep -mini -reseal.
