WDS Specific Clients Freezing

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have WDS installed on a business network and we have a bunch of Mesh Pegasus laptops that are causing a real headache with regards to imaging them.

I have created a base installation of Windows XP SP2 from CD, then run SysPrep to remove the necessary bits and shut down. When booting to the network, I get the 2 options I should have - Boot Image and Capture Image. I run the capture image option and it loads through WDS ok, but when it get to the stage of loading Windows with the green progress bar, it freezes with 2 bars of the progress bar showing.

This happens on ALL of our Mesh Pegasus laptops, and none of our many other branded laptops/computers, all using the same source CD for base installation.

Any suggestions?

Thanks/...

have you tried creating the image manually from the command line of your boot image?

imagex /capture C: image.wim "Name"

you'll need to copy the imagex.exe program from your waik installation to your windows\system32 folder on your pe2.0 boot image...

reboot the pc, finish sysprep then copy the file manually to your wds server.
