Driver not found during Sysprep



Hello All,

We have been using Sysprep along with Ghost for many years to deploy our
standard corporate image to more than 200 desktops. We have about 11
different models of computers all requiring different drivers etc.

Everytime we get a new machine we get all the new drivers from the vendors
site, add them to our drivers folder in the sysprep folder, update our
sysprep.inf file by adding the new path to the OEMdrivers path string and the
sysprep just works by doing a discovery process at boot, the mini setup
wizard comes up and asks for a machine name which we provide, it
automatically joins the machine to the domain and we are good to go.

The problem is, the last two machines we have recieved, this process has not
worked. The machines boots up after getting the new syspreped image, the
discovery process happens and suddenly it prompts for the video driver, the
driver is there in the drivers folder so we point it to
C:\Sysprep\Drivers\dc7900\video and it finds it, but why is this happening ?
The OEMPath does have this path listed in the sysprep.ini file, nothing has
changed just a new driver. Any help is most appreciated




The section for SourceDiskFiles in the *driver*.inf file contains vaules
which don't exist. Clear these vaules and the install will proceed.
Caution - Drivers will no longer be seen as digitally signed once changed,
but that may not matter to you.
