Windows XP SP2 and Sysprep 2.0

Guest

I am having troubles with making a successful Sysprep configuration with a
slipstreamed version of Windows XP SP2. I have made a successful Sysprep
configurations with Windows Server 2003 SP1, but Windows XP SP2 is having
more issues.

I am having issues with Sysprep 2.0 recognizing OEM System Builder Product
Keys. I am able to enter in other 'normal' keys, but unable to use Sysprep
to enter in OEM keys. I have done several iterations of putting the product
in the sysprep.inf file and leaving it separate, but all having the same
result of Windows claiming it is an invalid Product ID.

I use the mini setup and reseal flags for Sysprep with the command "sysprep
-reseal -mini". I have seemed to run out of my knowledge and the rest of my
colleagues knowledge as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you create your image using an "OEM Version" of XP?

Well, you need to make an image using an OEM Version
of Windows XP if you expect to use OEM Product Keys.

Either one of the following utilities makes slipstreaming
(integrating) SP2 into Windows XP a breeze:

or

AutoStreamer 1.0.33 (preferred)
