RIS - RIPrep images not working

Guest

I set up RIS on a Windows Server 2003 computer, then used the CD-based image to set up a new client. After installing all the latest updates and applications, and configuring the client according to company standards, I ran RIPrep to load the complete image to the RIS server. The process completed without errors, but I cannot access the RIPrep image when booting a new system from the network boot disk. No menu comes up, and only the CD-based image installs. The Remote Install > Advanced properties sheet for the RIS server in AD users and Computers lists the RIPrep image, and I have not changed the default permissions.

RIS in Windows Server 2003 uses HAL filtering, is the target computer
using the same hal as the one you did the riprep on?

Are you sure the RIS server you mentioned is the ONLY one on your
segment ?

Can you verify that the new pc is truly accessing the RIS server you
expected ?

Problem solved! In looking over the other posts for the same problem, it seemed like the most common cause was differences in the HAL. It didn't make sense since both were DELL Optiplex; but I tested on a computer of the same model as the reference computer, and it worked. I did this twice with two different models to confirm that it worked; guess I'll have to use a different image for each model.

Thanks for all the help.
