Do I need to somehow install video drivers? If so, how do I go about installing them?
BTW, I have an NVidia GeForce FX 7600GT. So I know it will support it. Also, if I have to install a driver then I would like to install drivers for several video cards.... The whole 16 color is a little annoying.

You may want to go looking for a driver snapin for BartPE or something, and then slightly modify it to fit your standard PE image.

Albuquerque you stated using a Plugin for BartPE any suggestions or links? I haven't found anything that will work.

Edit: I had a thought... I know what you're probably missing: the drivers for your chipset. All the machines I support are based on Intel chipsets, and as such I've installed (via the DRVINST utility) every chipset driver that I'll ever need. Installing the chipset drivers also allowed several of my USB ports to start working, and also allowed access to Intel RAID devices too.
I bet that's your real issue right there...

Albuquerque thanks for your help, I do have one question. Is it possible to use Explorer.exe as a shell? If so, how? Any links or info on this. I would rather do this manually as I am learning how PE works more than anything.
BTW: I am using PE 2005 with Server 2k3 as my source.
Thanks again for your help.

We are making quite easy to add using winbuilder and windows 2003 as source. Here's the result on a 50Mb ISO:
PE environments are quite easy to handle with more flexible tools, the package also includes a script to change the screen resolution..
