'new hardware wizard' popup during mini-setup?

Barkley Bees

I created a Windows XP SP2 image for a Dell Latitude E4200, E4300 and E6400
using Sysprep. Afterwards, the installatopm completes successfully and all
drivers get properly detected but I notice one strange thing with the E6400:
when installing and the mini-setup wizard is running, the "new hardware
wizard" window pops up twice and so does a dos box which I can see is for
the audio drivers. They only appear for a few seconds and then disappear
after which the install proceeds and appears to complete successfully. This
only happens on the E6400 hardware which was my reference system when
building the image (the only driver I installed during the image build was
the nic).

note: I performed a "sysprep -reseal -mini -quiet".

Has anyone experienced this or similar? If so, did you find any way to
suppress these popups? I would like to hide these from the end users as they
would be confused/alarmed by the pop ups. Appreciate any feedback.

I don't think I've ever seen what you are describing, but we only use
Dell Optiplex systems so it could be unique to just that platform.
Strange that it happens when you deploy to the same platform as your
reference system - I would have expected the reverse would be more
likely to cause something like that.

Sorry I can't help.

something big and sinister going on in the world.
Slartibartfast: No, that's perfectly normal paranoia. Everyone in the
universe gets that.
