I've got my sysprep image working unattended the way I want it to with one problem. I want the end user to be prompted for computer name, and nothing else. This used to work by simply leaving the ComputerName entry blank in the sysprep.inf.

It seems that this busted since I've upgraded my image to WinXP SP1. I made sure that I began using Sysprep 2.0 which, if I recall, you need for WinXP SP1.

Any ideas? Prior to WinXP SP1, my unattended sysprep install worked fine including properly prompting for the computer name. I've even tried using an older version of Sysprep with the same results. I also do not want to use the * to generate random computer names.

I've just re-done my WinXP SP1 build and I had to re-run the setupmgr.exe to get it working properly again.
It prompts me for a name now and when I open up my sysprep.inf I have the following;
[UserData]
ProductKey=
FullName=
OrgName=
;ComputerName=*

notice the comment out on the computername.
(Also the lack of ProductKey[:D]

C:
cd \Sysprep
Sysprep.exe -mini -reseal

If you were using the * for the computer name it will automatically create a unique name based on the registered orgname.
