    Ben
    Yeah but saying that Plexer I am now running into problems. I have 6 install images imported - however problems are occuring.

    When using the boot.wim to boot, I am only offered 1 image as an install image, the other 5 do not show, these are sysprepped images I created.

    I created a capture.wim from the boot.wim and that works fine, every now and again it moans that it cannot contact the server, but reboot, PXE back in and it runs fine.

    It's a bit hit and miss and I'm not sure if hit & miss is acceptable.

    I think the problem could be hal related, i've got about 15 images on my WDS server and it only shows the ones that are relevant to that hal. ie dual core machines on pull in images created on a dual core machine. single core only get the single core images.

    think there is a way to switch off hal detection in WDS though so it will show all images.

    Exactly the problem. I read the guides and the likes, and said switch to ACPI, and it should be compatible to all machines, and like crap is it.

    I do wish their was a way to turn HAL off, as its rather annoying and frustrating.
