My company has just bought some new Dell's (optiplex 170L) and its the first time I've used them.

My XPSP2 RIS image can't format any HD I put in.

My 2k RIS image works fine, my 2k and XP CDs work fine... But I can't get XP RIS to format the drive for love or money. And standalone tools can format the drives on the PC.

I've sorted the Net Driver issues with the Optiplex's but just can't get setup to format.

Has anyone had this problem before or have any clues?

I had this before. Does the directory containing your XP image in your RemoteInstall\Setup\English\Images folder contain spaces? Either rename or replace the spaces in the folder name with _

This cured the exact same problem for me.
