Sysprep doesn't work


G

Guest

I've been using sysprep for years and I'm tired of it not working correctly

I work for a medium sized company. We have Windows XP site license and when
I enter the product ID into the answer file it fails and says invalid product
ID. Well, this is WRONG WRONG WRONG....it is a valid product ID and I'm tired
of having to manually enter a number in every time.

The mini setup is suppose to add the computer to my domain, but this has
NEVER worked. It will sit for about 45min and then say it can't add the
computer to the domain even though all the credentials are correct.

Why can't I add a computer name to the new install in mini setup? All I can
do is enter a name when the anserfile is created, or have it generate a
name...neither is expectable.

I must be doing things wrong here...Please help

I seem to rember a time when cloning machines was easy and everythig worked

Are you sure that the license key match the type of OS License you have
installed.

Like it will not work if you install XP PRO OEM and use VLK for that.

I just modified the aswerfile today. It worked before with the same product
ID number. The image was probably created from the Dell image on the laptop.
Are you saying that I should reinstall XP using my company's CD and this will
fix the problem?

What are the diffrent xp license types? and can these be indentified. I'm
talking about XP professional. Are there diffrent license types within XP
professional?

Thanks for the reply
