    One Master image to rule them all?

    I am trying to make a master image that i can fog on to all my various XP machines.
    Not successful so far but I'm giving it a go.
    I have an image that is fine on one computer, a fujitsu, but if i try to deply it to an eee box it moans about graphics drivers not having passed windows logo testing.
    It asks if I want to continue installing this.
    I'm quite happy for it to not install it but I can't figute out what I need to do to the image to stop it asking.

    Has anyone else had much success trying this?

    Thanks

    installing a signed driver for the video card rather than an unsigned one will probably fix the issue

    Take a look at Slim Jims

    I created a video tutorial of how to do this a few weeks ago. Just testing it today here actually, and so far out of 6 different hardware types my image works on all of them without fail. I know it says WDS but it should work just as well for FOG.

    Hey Hightower,
    Firstly thanks for the video guide as I tweaked my sysprep.inf file and it saved me some issues.

    Can I ask a question about you video part 1?
    When you have the drivers at 9:34 you have them all in a folder called "D" and a bunch of ini files beginning with driverpack...

    When I unzip them they don't look like that!

    Did you have to move them into this structure?

    Thanks

    I downloaded all the packs in ZIP format, then selected them all and extracted to the same folder - this can be done with 7zip easily and saved mucking on copying each driver type manually.

    Thanks, I shall give that a go.
    So to clarify you unzipped them into a folder and the unzipping process created the folder called "D"

    Thanks

    @reggiep:

    What OS are you trying to image? If it is XP, we have our sysprep.inf file look at a folder on the C drive with all the drivers in. It is currently about 200mb but will be cut down soon. If you want, i can send you an example of it.
