sysprep from desktop to laptop

Guest

What is the easiest way to get images to work on any platforms? Currently my image will only work on Dell and a few other desktops. As soon as I try booting a laptop with it it goes bezerk! Any ideas? I'm using the bootdisks from Norton Ghost 2003, which has pretty generic drivers so I don't get what's wrong. Here's my file

;SetupMgrTa

Make sure that the computer type on the orginal template
before sysprep is set to ACPI PC, Not Standard pc.

if original installation was done with a Dell OEM disk there might be
problems. I have heard some say that they can't use their Dell XP install
disk on non-Dell machines. please point me in the right direction if I am
wrong.

What did you build the image on? What happens if you just boot from
DOS disk and run Ghost.exe to restore the image? What specifically i
the error condition?

I've built a single image that installs fine on virtually any deskto
or laptop. It most certainly can be done
