The only issue I'm having is that after the image is done deploying and the machine reboots for the first time, the Windows 7 Set Up prompts us to select the following: Country or region Time and currency Keyboard layout Along with being prompted to "Help protect your computer and improve Windows automatically" and select one of the following for Windows Updates: Use recommended settings Install important updates only Ask me later Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Rob
  2. Client has 4GB RAM and the server has 2GB RAM. We're using both unattend answer files. Yes it happens with all clients (desktops or laptops). So far the guys have only tried two machines - an OptiPlex 760 and a Latitude D620. We're aware of the unicast issue with Server 2003. Currently for large Vista deployments, our operations team has a laptop configured with Server 2008 and multi-cast. The remote site server has WDS installed for machines that need re-imaging. I'm wondering if it may have to do with the fact that the server's using the onboard Broadcom NIC versus the Intel PRO1000 dual-port NIC. I may have the guys in Sydney swap NICs and test. Any thoughts? Thanks, Rob
  3. Hello, We're currently having an issue deploying our Vista w/SP1 32-bit image using WDS on a Dell PowerEdge 2800 server running Windows Server 2003 SP1. Here are the two error messages during deployment: Windows cannot install required files. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error Code : 0x800703E6 OR Windows cannot install required files. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error Code : 0x800706F8 I've research the error codes and it boils down to a file copy error with a system's DVD-ROM drive. But this is occurring during image deployment over the network. Any help/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!! Rob
  4. No we haven't deployed XP SP3 at all. We're currently migrating over to Vista but we still have to support our XP image for the remote sites that haven't been migrated to Vista yet but are getting new hardware. Check out this link: http://www.msfn.org/board/Integration-of-I...ve-t107504.html This should help you out. Are you deploying XP using RIS?
  5. Figured it out - used nLite to inject the drivers into the Windows XP Pro w/SP2 CD and then recreated the base RIS image install. Deployed the image to the OptiPlex 760 and the Latitude E Series laptops without any issues with the SATA Operation set to AHCI mode. Ben - let me know if you need help with using nLite. It's a pretty straight forward yet powerful tool. After adding the textmode drivers, I changed my riprep.sif back to what it was before messing with it and our production XP image deployed without any issues. Rob
  6. Hello all!! I'm having issues getting our XP Pro w/SP2 RIS image to deploy on Dell's latest OptiPlex 760 desktop and the Latitude E Series laptops (E4200/4300/6400). In the past with the older Dell machines we'd set SATA mode in the BIOS to ATA mode and our image would deploy without any problems. Now with the release of the OptiPlex 760 and the E Series, if you change the SATA Operation mode from IRRT or AHCI to ATA, the eSATA port will be disabled and we can't have that. Here's what I've done to date: 1. The following directories exist: R:\RemoteInstall\Setup\English\Images\Windows.XP.Pro.SP2.GXSeries.v1.8\$oem$\$1\Drivers\NIC R:\RemoteInstall\Setup\English\Images\Windows.XP.Pro.SP2.GXSeries.v1.8\$oem$\$1\Drivers\Storage R:\RemoteInstall\Setup\English\Images\Windows.XP.Pro.SP2.GXSeries.v1.8\$oem$\TEXTMODE 2.

I pressing any key several times the deployment is able to continue but then the image fails when trying to format the hard drive with the following error in the text mode portion of the setup: Windows XP Professional Setup ================================ The manufacturer provided file that Setup is trying to use is corrupted or invalid: Line 1 contains a syntax error. Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3. I've tried using Intel version 7.0 and 7.6 of their Storage Matrix Drivers along with Dell's drivers for the OptiPlex 760 and no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!! Rob
