    WDS issue (Again!) - Hidden files?

    I am implementing WDS to deploy Windows XP at my company. It's going well now after some arduous tweaking but I'm having one final problem.

    After using WDS to deploy an image, all files and folders on the target machine have lost their 'hidden' attribute. This is quite annoying as desktop.ini files show up in the start menu and desktop - including the startup folders, so they open up in notepad on startup.

    I get the feeling I shouldnt have to write scripts to hide all the desktop.ini files after deployment, I must be overlooking something.

    Can anyone help? Google seems to be failing me this time round.

    Thanks

    I had the same problem but only with converting an existing RIS Setup into WIM Format. When creating WIM Files using the normal Windows PE Capture it worked fine. Never did find a solution for this either.
