Currently I have been doing the universal imaging for my small school that I'm a low level admin at.
Currently making a master image and updating the computer.
Loading MS Steady State
Log into accounts get everything set.
Currently using the driver packs on different dell models, I have 32 different models. It's cray.
I have the driver packets currently loaded with the image, using makePNF.exe C:\D method and using mysysprep.
The problem is mysysprep isn't pulling the correct hal file each time on UP PC's, even after adding the correct names.
I have already created a bartpe that has network drivers and automatically maps into my shared ghost directory.
I make a master. Run driver packs, set it to run on next boot and then run mysyspre and shutdown. Then ghost the image.
I know not the best way but it has been working.
Is there a way to keep my current master and load the Driver packet drivers from a shared network driver (Shared network of Driver Packets) and have the offline sysprep run from within windows or automatically in bartpe?
I got it to work within Windows, by using driver scanner and the program but don't want to leave a mess of drivers on the drive with the image. Could someone help me out by putting either the drivers on a bartpe or having them extract from my shared drive (On the schools local network)
Does anyone want to make like a How to Offlinesysprep? From Start to Finish?
Step 1. Build a Master Image with the software you need on it (You can also setup a real slim base image and push the software via AD or something of that matter)
Step 2. Download this (All the files you need in one folder) Put this folder in the C Drive
Have a Plugin for BartPE i know you need your own copy of XP to make your own Bartpe.
