    WDS problem

    Hi everyone

    I am trying to use the WDS on server 2008 and have done for around 100 of our computers with no problems the capture image worked great and was able to deploy without any difficulties, my question/problem i am having now is i have started to add in older machines Pentium III 1.0Ghz machines with 512mb all the same motherboards and hardware.

    I have installed windows set it the exact way i want the image to be enabled ACPI in the BIOS and sysprep the computer run capture in WDS and the image has been uploaded onto the WDS server as well as the workstation. Now when i go back and try to deploy that image to the same work station it is showing "There are no images available" These computers are not Multi core processors and the HAL is showing as UP now i have tried added into the sysprep.inf

    UpdateHAL=”ACPIAPIC_MP,%WINDIR%\Inf\Hal.inf
    UpdateHAL=”ACPIAPIC_UP,%WINDIR%\Inf\Hal.inf
    UpdateUPHAL=”ACPIAPIC_UP,%WINDIR%\Inf\Hal.inf

    Each of these being done and then when one didn’t work move onto the next and so on but every time i try to go into the deploy images it shows that there are no images available. I have logged onto the WDS server and double checked that the image was uploaded and it has been and the size of the image is similar to that of the other image for different workstations.

    Can anyone please help me with this problem as there are 80 machines to add onto the network and using WDS has been a great help with the first 100 machines i added.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Aaron.

    Have you injected the NIC driver for the machines in question into the boot.wim/defaultWinPE.wim.
