Scripted Install not applying computer name

I have a scripted Windows 7 install that seems to be working. The OS installs and the kbox agent installs. The issue I am seeing is that the computer name is not being saved or applied. That task has been assigned to the scripted install, but I guess something else is wrong.

Has anyone else seen this or have an idea on what could be going on?

Check all the MAC addresses of the machine. I had a problem where the MAC address of the Bluetooth adapter was the one being used for comparison.

Not a laptop, it was on a batch of Dell Optiplex GX270's. I just moved the pre and post tasks to log and the computer name and apply it after scripted install was complete.

I'll try downloading the wsname thing in a bit.

I'll start another thread on this in a minute, but I am pretty much done messing with the 2000 box. The scripted install works almost halfway and the image deploy didn't work at all. Every one of my boxes get a wonderful "hardware configuration problem". Guess it is back to ghost images and doing it by hand again.
