Hi I am using Ghost 8.0 corporate edition.

My current PC setup:
- all PCs use have the same hardware specifications
- all PCs are to use windows 2000 professional
- all PCs do not have a domain, but are under the same workgroup "ROOM_1"

My objectives:
- easiest way to restore all PCs to a base image (basic applications on a fresh
windows 2000 professional)
- maintain as few copies of images as possible
- no intervention needed on target PCs (have all tasks done remotely from a
single Ghost Console, unattended restoration)

Is this achieveable?

I have tried using the following
- remotely installed clients from Ghost Console (while clients are running windows 2000)
- create sysprep configuration with sysprep.inf
- created an image of remote source with sysprep (image stored into ghost console PC)
- set up ghost console task to restore (i.e. clone) this image on target clients

Currently I face some problems:

1. even with ComputerName set in sysprep.inf file under [UserData] key, the
restored PC will still prompt me to confirm the name. Can this be automatically
set and be unattended?

2. when reboot occurs on client PCs after initiating restoration task, instead of
going into Ghost dos mode, some restarted back to windows 2000

My other questions:
1. How do I change SID in unattended mode?
2. Must I use sysprep if I want unattended mode and unique computer name
for each client?
