Hi !

We have a network with a Windows 2003 Server with RIS. There are several RIS- and RiPrep-Installations on it (XP Pro SP2, XP Pro SP2 RiPrep, 2003 Server, another XP SP2 RiPrep). I have installed a client with one XP Pro RiPrep, changed the configuration of it and installed several programs, then I have done a RiPrep of this Client and installed this (again over PXE) on another Client. The next day I wanted to install a third client with this new RiPrep, but it disappeared from the list where you can choose the OS after booting over PXE. The other older OS are there, but not the new one. And nobody has changed aanything over night with the RIS.

What can it be and where is the list with the OS on the Ris-Server ?

Are you using the same folder for this new build as another build? If that's the case, have you checked to see if the corresponding SIF file is in the proper location? Also, there is a tag that should be at the bottom of the SIF. If that's not there it won't put it in the list. If you are unsure what I am talking about take a look at the bottom of one of your working SIF files.

Also, those lists are dynamic. It scans for usable images on every time you run the CIW.
What if everything around you, isn't quite as it seems...
What if all the world you used to know, is an elaborate dream...
And if you look at your reflection, Is that all you want to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks, Would you find yourself... find yourself afraid to see?
