    mdt problem imaging zotac machines

    Hi
    looking for ideas to troubleshoot this.
    Have mdt working fine on loads of different hardware including some zotac mini PCs with celeron processors but I have problems with zotac ZBOXHD-ND22 model (AMD/nvidia) - these seem to image ok but then at the last stage after finalising settings and restart they will just keep looping round - windows crashes - get the screen where you have option for safe mode etc. - won't boot to safe mode either.
    Have tried:
    injecting different drivers from zotac site and installation cds into mdt
    a 32 bit image rather than 64 bit
    a custom image that was taken from a working zotac machine - (we used to use ghost)
    all give the same result
    pulled drive out after imaging and looked at all logs in minint and windows temp and smstasksequence folders using sms trace - no logs show any errors or give me a clue.
    running out of ideas now - can anyone help?
    thanks mark

    Had no replies to this but am posting to help others-
    got it working in the end by doing a custom image of a good machine and then disabling out of box drivers in task sequence.
    A driver somewhere was throwing it out but not had time to work out which one.
