    ok maybe not

    its got so far in sysprep and up popped a lovely error box

    Windows could not parse or process unattend answer file [C:\Windows\Pather\unattend.xml] for pas [oobesystem] The settings specified in the answer file could not be applied. The error was detected while processing settings for companent [Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup].


    Any idea guys my answer file looks like this

    Ok just printed out your one you sent me and the one I had edited

    Only difference is the passwords and usernames of course, but best to check


    Username I put The Ockendon School
    Username you put was Build_User

    Does It Like spaces? Think that is what is causing the problem?

    Also just to tell you where you add the local user, you wrote administrators wrong, your missing the r

    Cheers for pointing out my error fortunatly it does not seem to make a difference to any thing, as far as using a space in the username, i am not sure i seem not to, and everyone else in the office here has no idea, think it is one of things just never tried.

    Looking at your command line "C:\Windows\Pather\unattend.xml" is this where your unattend.xml is stored?

    must be something wrong with the sysprep file

    any other ideas, other than that guys?

    If anyone has a sysprep handy, could they email it to me at davep @ live . com

    so I can look at it or maybe edit it for our settings

    jmcdermott need you help please
    or anyone who understands this

    I have the following problem on your power script file

    I have made my required images, when I tested the image, your script did not seem to add the computer to the network

    I didnt disable UAC (Forgot to)

    So to this the script with admin rights, I lanched CMD with admin rights and lauched the script from that

    The following error came up.

    File add2dom.ps1 cannot be loaded because the execution of scripts is disabled on this system. Please see “get-help about_signing” for more details.

    Did you get this problem?
    Dont really want to manually add the computers to the domain after imaging a computer everytime

    never mind, me being stupid, noicted in your batch script, you have elevate execution, so yer defo need UAC disbled

    Left the 4 laptops creating the image

    Yep 4

    One for 64BIT Workgroup (For Staff Laptops Normally)
    One for 64BIT Domain (For Student PCS)
    One for 32BIT Workgroup (For Staff Laptops Not 64BIT CPU)
    One for 32BIT Domain (For Student PCS Not 64BIT CPU)

    All domain images only have settings I want applied, no software installed expect updates, Software Distribution installs the software for the domain computers

    Yes the run once script enables the execution of scripts before it runs the addtdom.ps1 script.

    Umm ok another problem seems to have arised, it seem after I sysprep the 4 machines again, that I was using to make the image (Needed to change a setting)

    It seems that it came up with the OOBE setup screens

    Does this happen when you sysprep it a second time?


    I have seen that you can add the unattended file for the image on the WDS console, under the propeties of the image, would this be a better way of applying the images part of the install?

    I did try this (Still had the old unattanded file from the image enable, so dont know if this was conflicting. Has when I tried it doing this way, it seems that it add lots of US language parts to the system and the lanuage bar came up (Dont want that)

    Really need to know if sysprepping the same image again would cause problems

    I think you can sysprep a machine up to 4 times before problems start to occur. As long as the unattend file is still in the same place it should just do the same thing as last time.

    As for using WDS I found the whole process to be to much of a pain in the rear so stopped using it and switched to a free imaging suit called FOG which is much easier, so can not comment on using the unattend file with it.
