Sysprep 2.0 Dialog Box Error

Guest

I'm having a heck of a time trying to have Sysprep run an automated install
using mini-setup on a install of XP. The Sysprep runs properly and shutsdown
the PC ready for me to upload the image. But when I deploy the image the PC
enters mini setup and reads the sysprep.inf everything goes great until it
reaches the "Registering Components" step in the process.

When it reaches this step it pops up a dialog box named "System Preparation
Tool 2.0" then states all the proper uses of parameter's (i.e. -reseal
-factory ext.). The dialog box just has the OK to continue then the
mini-setup finishes with no problem. It makes me think that I'm typing
something in wrong when I execute sysprep or in the sysprep.inf. An example
of my sysprep.inf is below as is the command line I use to execute sysprep.
(I've also tried using the GUI sysprep interface and the same error occurs).
Any help would be HUGELY appreciated.

Command line I use C:\Sysprep\sysprep.exe -mini -quiet -reseal

Sysprep.inf I use:

[Unattended]
OemSkipEula=Yes
InstallFilesPath=C:\sysprep\i386
OemPnPDriversPath=Drivers\NIC;Drivers\Video;Drivers\Sound

[GuiUnattended]
AdminPassword=*
EncryptedAdminPassword=NO
OEMSkipRegional=1
TimeZone=4
OemSkipWelcome=1

By chance do you have a CMDLINES.TXT that is being executed, perhaps with
"SYSPREP -CLEAN" (well, maybe some small variation of that)?

Yes I have it located in C:\Sysprep\i386\$OEM$

File name is cmdlines.txt (lower case), the only entry I have in it is
below...

[Commands]
"C:\Sysprep\Sysprep - clean"

Anything seem out of place??

Thanks for the help.

Yes, there should be no space betwen "-" and "clean" - it should say
"C:\sysprep\sysprep -clean".

*slaps head* Thanks... the white paper I read from our imaging vendor had a
typo.
