XP Image - Booting stuck in a loop
I made a basic XP image - put all of the software I need on the machine, captured it as a WIM, and have a few post-install tasks (nothing major - a couple MSI's, etc). However, once I deploy the WIM to another machine, it's stuck in a loop during boot. I see the WindowsXP boot logo for about 2 seconds, then it restarts back to the Dell Logo screen.
Any idea as to what is going on here? We have about 100 machines that need this image, and I'm in a time constraint here. These machines are being replaced by Windows 7 new boxes in a few months, but we need to reimage these for now. They are all Optiplex 760's and should be identical. The machine is NOT sysprepped - not sure if that makes a difference. I ran into the same issue upon sysprepping, so I thought maybe it was an issue with that - but now I've captured it unsysprepped, and I still have the same issue.
go into your bios and under hard drive mode compare your master to the targets if the master was in ata mode and you are casting to achi mode drives the drivers will be incorrect and cause it to loop
