    Yes that is tedious but the reboots will make sure nothing strange is going on.

    If after the above it works, the problem probably relates to a computer account already in the domain of the original name, or part of the process of renaming and adding to the domain you have configured in WDS.

    If after the above it does not work you probably have a slightly more complicated problem with your image which is preventing networking or domain operations from working correctly. I would go back to your image and see if that works.

    Hope that helps.

    Sadly- the above doesn't work so it must be the image. Harumph! Thankyou for your help on this. It's the first time i've ever used WDS to capture / deploy an image so i must have mucked it up somewhere.

    When the imaged machines were rejoined to the network were they put in the correct OU in AD?

    If you have time, add MDT 2012 to the server for deployment. Best deployment/capture tool on the planet, plenty of documentation, from Microsoft and free

    Hi

    Is the nic card in the client a 1 gig card.
    see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2421599
    create a notepad doc and put this in it
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

    "GpNetworkStartTimeoutPolicyValue"=dword:00000 03c

    save it a gpodelay.reg

    log onto the client as administrator and double click the file and insert it into the registry.

    then reboot and see if that fixes the error,

    If this does not work it might be a corrupt image. When you installed this machine you did wipe it and all the partitions before you started and installed from original disk and not the manufactures install. Some companies like dell put extra partitions on the machine for restore and I have had problems either taking an image or group policies not applying.

    CRACKED IT!!!

    Turns out the original image I captured must have been corrupt or something. I decided to follow these guides again:

    SYSPREP: how can I sysprep Windows Vista ? - Deploying Windows XP, Vista, Server and more... - www.windows-noob.com

    CAPTURE: how can I CAPTURE an Image using WDS - Windows Deployment Services (WDS) - www.windows-noob.com

    DEPLOY: how can I DEPLOY an image captured using WDS ? - Windows Deployment Services (WDS) - www.windows-noob.com

    It feels like such a faff doing all this, many, many forums and technical tips for this and that and at the end of the day- it was just a corrupt image. Thanks for all your help everyone. Not sure why the image was corrupt or not working properly as i've been round the houses and back on this one and can't tell my backside from my elbow now.

    If only there were some script or ANYTHING that did all this for you... You put in everything you want installing, domain joining, where etc... (in really basic, simple language) into a visual display and then press GO. x
