@tap52384 - I didn't mention Sysprep because I didn't want to go into how to create your base image. There are many different methods to create the base image, some will use sysprep some will not it all depends upon what you want to do. that is why in the requirements we have "system configured as desired and ready for image capture"

Where are you running this exe from..? I presume c:\program files\Windows AIK\tools\petools as its not copied down to c:\WinPE_x86 or subdirectories with the mount script.
all I keep getting is " The Image directory sp[ecified is not valid windows PE image"
Also is your build all another script to run or all of the above scripts in one..?
in this all build.cmd you have msd & network.cmd install scripts of which you do not mention in your document. these are obviously adding drivers from the bts packs but what do these scripts contain..?

install_msd.cmd and install_network.cmd are the install_drivers.cmd which was modified to point to those directory folders. I will edit the document to clarify this.
I also noticed that the paths at the beginning of build_all.cmd are what I use on my machine and not the defaults that other people might use.
PDF edited and replaced (7/26)
@chiners_68 - it sounds like your PE image is not mounting correctly to c:\winpe_x86\mount

Page 7, item A:
Note: WinPE-SRT-Package currently does not work, Microsoft to fix at a later date.

By the way do you have any info on the Multicast option in Windows 2008?
I heard that the new version of SMS will do wim deltas which also ties into 2008 intresting times ahead.

P.S. Longhorn indeed has multicast ability but unless you have gigabit your not goging to make full use of it I think and its still called wds .

I've got a question: Can I use this tutorial to deploy an image to several pcs at a time? Which programs let me deploy this image? Can I use it with BDD or later on SCCM (newest SMS2003)?

Followed your guide all the awy and created the boot CD. But when i boot to it, I get the DOS screen with things like 'USB support successfully initialized', ' No FAT32 volumes found, exiting'; 'Caldera DR-DOS 7.03', but then it presents me with the A:\> dos prompt and my keyboard just doesn't work anymore. Could it be becase I am using USB keyboard?
I have tried a couple of machines (Dell Optiplex GX620 andoptiplex 745) .

What all have you added to the CD? You might try starting with the base cd I describe in the guide, add you applications you want and then run them manually rather than automatically, it might be something you are loading that could be causing the issue.

Perhaps you have a floppy in your floppy drive. Make sure you boot from your created Boot cd.
If you have Problems under Dos to use your USB Keyboard, you have to enable USB Legacy Support in your Bios.
But you don't need it for WinPE. The USB driver is loaded during the WinPE Start.
