I am currently building a base XP image for multiple computers. I get the base image that was built on a GX280 to work on all the desktop units. 240,260,270. My problem is when I try to get it to run on a laptop, mainly the x200, and x300. The minisetup runs fine, but when the computer comes up the logon screen,I blue screen. I think I might have a HAL issue. I have enabled boot logging. The driver that the laptops crash on is the loading of the ACPI driver. I am using sysprep 2.0.
Any thoughts?

Looks like you need to rebuild the massStorage section in your sysprep ini. Build the laptop as you would a standard workstation in your company. copy the sysprep folder to the root of C:\ Edit the sysprep.ini
// The [Sysprep] and [SysprepMassStorage] sections are needed to instruct Windows to load all possible low-level, disk drive controllers during the boot sequence following Sysprep.
Be sure to delete everything under [SysprepMassStorage] then save the file.
then from run type C:\SYSPREP\SYSPREP.EXE –BMSD This will repopulate the section.
Also you want to check your HAL version prior to running sysprep.
Run sysprep image the laptop up you will find that your new image will workon the laptops and the desktops also.

If the hal is diffrent then thats another issue
