Sysprep imaging and driver issues

By alemsayed ·
Hi All

At work my boss wants me to create one standard disk image of a completely setup XP system that will function on multiple models of PC all manufactured by HP.

I have done quite a bit of research on Microsoft's Sysprep utility, which is used by manufacturers for this sort of thing.

To use in conjunction with the sysprep utility there is an unattended file to be created 'Sysprep.inf'. The structure of this file is exactly the same as 'winnt.sif'.

The problem with one standard image however is drivers.

The suggested method by microsoft is to include in the unattended section of the file the following entry
[Unattended]
OemPnpDrivers="%systemdrive%\Driver_Path\audio";"%systemdrive%\Driver_Path\chipset\"

and so on and so forth.

I have tried this with a drivers folder located on the windows drive containing the relative subfolders with the related drivers.

However when the minisetup phase of the sysprep is executing it does not seem to be perform the OemPnpDrivers task. The driver doesn't install.

Help please!
