    RIS Image on Centrino Duo

    Anybody done a RIS image of a laptop with Centrino in?

    We have 2 different spec laptops with this Centrino in and i cannot use RIS images on them.

    I install Windows XP Service Pack 2 on them, put all software on, run ripprep, up the image, alter the sif file. Then when i bring the image back down all files copy, but on starting the "mini setup" part or the RIS install the machine(s) just grind to a halt, even 12 hours later they have still not done it. You can see the dots going on forever, and the scrolling green bars under the Windows XP logo (on the black screen) moving so slow you think its gonna hang.

    If i do a a RIS Image of the same laptop with Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Windows XP no Service Pack it runs fine. Its only with SP2 on.

    Now when i did the same thing but used sysprep with WDS it works no problem. So i'm really confused!

    The HAL looks like its the one it should be. Where do i find these SMP Patches?

    1) go to Start Menu > Run. Type REGEDIT and press enter.

    The registry location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager should have a key named Throttle there, if not make it by right clicking, point at New > Key... name it Throttle.

    3) (Still in registry) Inside Throttle key: should be a DWORD called PerfEnablePackageIdle with the value of 1. If not there, right click, point to New > DWORD... name it PerfEnablePackageIdle.

    *** Note: You should type 1 in the Value data box to enable the performance state policy behavior (increases performance)

    4) Quit Registry.

    5) Now look at your boot.ini to make sure that the command /usepmtimer is there, by right clicking on My Computer go to Properties, click on the ADVANCED tab, then under Startup and Recovery click on Settings, then click on EDIT....make sure your boot.ini has the /usepmtimer in there (located in the last line), if NOT then just copy and paste /usepmtimer in there. (NOT the entire boot.ini example)
