XP Sysprep driver prompts

Trying to create an image using Sysprep for Dell machines. I create
the base image on a Optiplex GX520 which uses an Intel 82945G display.
When I sysprep and reload on the same machine, works fine. When I
sysprep and try to install the image on a GX260 which uses the Intel
82845G display, I'm prompted during the mini-setup for the location of
the Intel files. I have the latest DELL drivers copied on the machine
I'm sysprepping and have the OEMPnpDriversPath defined in my
sysprep.inf file (which has to be working because the NIC drivers are
loading fine) pointing to those drivers. During the Mini-setup when
prompted, I just choose those same driver directories and everything
loads fine so they are the right drivers. What am I missing?? Is
there a conflict b/w the 2 different Intel drivers (they do use common
files...some of the 82845 files have the same names as the 945 but are
older)? Below is my Unattended section of the sysprep.inf file...

[Unattended]
OemSkipEula=Yes
InstallFilesPath=C:\sysprep\i386
TargetPath=\WINDOWS
DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
KeepPageFile=0
UpdateInstalledDrivers=Yes

OemPnPDriversPath="\sysprep\Drivers\AUDIO;\sysprep\Drivers\VIDEO\gx260;\sysprep\Drivers\VIDEO\gx520;\sysprep\Drivers\NIC"

Any help would be appreciated on stopping the display driver prompts
during mini-setup.

Updating my own post....I took the GX520 out of the equation....loaded
the proper drivers on the GX260, run sysprep and I still get the
prompts for the driver location when the minisetup runs. Point to the
same directory that's in my OEMPnPDriversPath entry and they install
fine. So apparently either the drivers aren't being found by Sysprep
or something else that's beyond me is wrong. Any ideas?

Updating my own post again....disregard this issue, it's been
corrected. I did a few things...1. used older video drivers (even
though I wasn't getting the unsigned driver error, maybe that was an
issue) 2. changed my OEMPnPDevicepath....switched the video\gx260 and
video\gx520 paths to GX260\video and GX520\video. Not positive which
one fixed it but now I can go back and forth between hardware without
an issue.
