You can't clone a PC which has been on a domain. You will need to run a sysprep BEFORE you place it on the domain and THEN clone it.

Otherwise, you will need to set up a RIS server.

Yes you can clone a PC that has been connect to a domain network.
You use SIDCHNGR that can with the CD from PowerQuest.
Sidchngr changes the SID and machine name
from one to another name. Note the name MUST have the same number of charators in the name.
example machine one XX0123 or AB04590
machine two XX0125 or AB05009

Then you connect the new machine to your network

I have this about a thousands times at work and no problems over the last 5 years.

Sysprep you can NOT fully get PCs/Laptops completely setup for the users. You have add more software/updates and settings for your network and setting setups for all users.

Your problems also is Drive Image is old for XP systems. You need to get updated for Drive Image.
I am using ver, 5.5 and 6.0 for 2000 & XP and only had a few problems, but it work GREAT. I have used ver 3 and 4 for NT and 98.

Ver 3 should work. I have a 120GB and 60GB harddrives that I place the images on. On the 120GB transfer rate writing has been up to 800MB/sec and reading up 1600MB/sec.
I disconnect the CD and connect the harddrive.

For the master image all ways defrag the master drive before making an image. It helps.

Good Luck
