    Exclamation Sysprep XP SP3 Failing Missurably - Skip to post 5

    Hey guys,

    Two quick questions here on Sysprep XP SP3 before I get started. First off, I've got all my images just about finished [around 10 images]. I've been tweaking the local Administrator account in hopes that it will copy over to default user profile when I sysprep. If I understand correctly, I don't have to go into Profiles and copy the Administrator profile over to default user. I just have to have the following at the beginning of the sysprep file:

    ;SetupMgrTag
    [Unattended]
    OemSkipEula=Yes
    InstallFilesPath=C:\sysprep\i386
    TargetPath=\WINDOWS
    KeepPageFile=0
    UpdateServerProfileDirectory=1

    Can someone please varify this?

    Second question, I don't know if this is possible, but my answer file sysprep.ini that I copy pasted the above from, I've tried to make fully automated. However, I want it to stop part way through, ask me to enter in a computer name, and then continue, just so I don't have to go back in, change the computer name, restart, etc. Do I just click No, do not fully automate the setup, and when sysprep runs the computer for the first time, then accept the EULA and it will fill everything else in automatically and then ask me to enter a computer name, and continue?

    Currently that section looks like this:

    [UserData]
    ProductKey=My Product Key Is Entered
    FullName="School Name"
    OrgName="District Name"
    ComputerName=*

    I'm not sure if I have that right or not. Also, now that I think about it, do any of you ever get the error part way through that says the Administrator password cannot be changed, and then you just click ok to it, and wait till sysprep is done it's thing, and when the computer restarts, the password is there and actually worked perfectly but sysprep just whined that it didn't?

    Thanks!

    I can answer the second part of your question. If you do not include Computername=* then the mini setup will stop and ask you to give the machine it's name. Here is my fully functioning sysprep.ini for you to compare:

    ;SetupMgrTag
    [Unattended]
    OemSkipEula=Yes
    InstallFilesPath=C:\sysprep\i386
    TargetPath=\windows
    OemPnPDriversPath=sysprep\i386\chipset;sysprep\i38 6\nic;sysprep\i386\audio;sysprep\i386\video;syspre p\i386\video1
    DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
    ResetSourcePath=\\jschs2\i386\chipset;\\jschs2\i38 6\nic;\\jschs2\i386\audio;\\jschs2\i386\video;\\js chs2\i386\video1
    KeepPageFile=0
    UpdateInstalledDrivers=Yes

    [GuiUnattended]
    AdminPassword="*****"
    EncryptedAdminPassword=NO
    OEMSkipRegional=1

    sysprep

    hi

    with my experience of sysprep it always says it cant change the admin password... then does! weird...

    have you tried MySysprep? its got some functions where you can use a system variable (computer ID, etc..) as part of the computer name, very useful...

    I'll check out MySysprep, thanks! Also, I found a workaround for the admin password. Apparently, you just leave the administrator password blank in sysprep, and it uses the existing Administrator password. I tested it last night and it worked. Still having lots of issues with imaging though. I'll edit later and update with the issues, too busy right now.

    Unfortunately it didn't do that for me.
