    SCCM Golden XP Image

    I am playing with SCCM and although we move to Windows 7 soon I still have to support Windows XP for the time. I have been trying to create a golden image without imaging and capturing similar to the way RIS worked.

    I have integrated all the drivers from the DriversPack repository and used Nlight to create the image but I am really not getting anywhere lots of errors on the file file copy stage and constant blue screens once past that. Has anyone done this and if so how did you achieve it.

    Unless I am misunderstanding what you are saying I think that this is your problem.
    SCCM still requires you to create and capture an image, good guide here: how can I deploy Windows XP SP3 using SCCM 2007 SP1 - Part 1 - Deploy XP - www.windows-noob.com

    Yeh I have been reading this and my thinking was if I could deploy an image to capture then I could deloy an image and not capture, so if I had the relevant drivers in the image I would then have a golden image. Or does sccm do something on the capture?

    The first step of the process does not deploy an image, rather it builds an XP machine from the installation source, syspreps it (missing this out is probably what is causing your blue screens), then captures the image.
    The image is then used for deployment.

    Well if you use the build and capture routine and make sure all the drivers you need are available then surely you can deploy onto all the hardware you have?
