WinXP, SP2 & RIS


R

Ralf Pelzl

Hello,
i got strange problems with that:
RIS on Windows 2003. Theres a flat image of Windows XP Volume License with
no SP. I installed a client with it, everything works fine. I created a
RIPREP image of that client and install it on a second workstation.
Everything works fine. Now i copied the Windows XP cd to a directory,
slipstreamed a SP2 with "update /integrate:c:\temp\WinXP". After that i
added this new version to the RIS-Server as a new image. Everything ok, i
can install it on Clients. But if i now do a RIPREP of this fresh installed
workstation and try to install that to a second workstation or the same
workstation, the bluescreen setup section finished and the bootsequence
failed with corrupt file "system32\drivers\pci.sys". The pci.sys is
installed.... i checked this by running the recovery console....
Now i tried a WinXP with integrated SP2 Volume License (downloaded from MSDN
AA), same effect. The flat image works and a riprep image not. But WITHOUT
SP2 (the SP1 i never tried) it works.

Any ideas ?

Thanks for your effort
Ralf

We installed a flat WinXP without SP. Then we do a "normal" SP-Update and
after that we do a RIPREP. This image will work. But why i cant install
"RIPREP" image of a slipstreamed WinXP with SP2 ?

Hi Ralf,

I wonder if the XPSP2 RIPREP image is using a different driver than the
cd-based XP. Your error message appears to indicate drivers are to blame.

I understand the problem as: You create a flat of XPSP2 and it works to
image a client. You create a RIPREP version of the machine imaged with
XPSP2 and it fails when imaging a client.

I wonder if the pci.sys version in your cd-based image is different than the
RIPREP image on the server, maybe the final stages of the client install or
maybe you installed something from Windows Update before RIPREPing the
client. IIRC, that file was changed in the SP2 slipstream install. Perhaps
try this test:

1. Stop the Remote Install/BINL Service
2. RIPREP XPSP2 image - rename pci.sys in the i386 folder to pci.OLDsys.
3. Copy the pci.sys from the XPSP2 cd-based image to the RIPREP image. You
should not need to overwrite the file since it was renamed.
4. Start the Remote Install Service and test.

Hello,
the problem you understand right. I checked the pci.sys in
i386\Mirror1\Userdata\Windows\system32\Drivers before i followed your steps.
The pci.sys in the RIPREP-image is same like pci.sys in SP2. I copied it
again (like you want), no effect. I checked it on the installed client via
repair console, there is the RIGHT pci.sys.
I already created 3 (in words three) flat images of WinXP. One from a WinXP
CD with SP2, one from pure WinXP (without SP2) slipstreamed SP2 by myself
and one without SP2. The only methode to work with that is this way: Install
client without SP, installing SP2 manually, riprep-ing this client.
Any other ways, where i install a flat image with SP2, does not work. Any
other ideas ?

Regards
Ralf

Hmm, I don't know what to say on this one. Maybe someone else has an idea.
