Tip

Ghost multiple machines with Sysprep.exe

This should help if you are trying to create a ghost image using Sysprep.exe. Also create a CMDLINES.txt and place it in the I386$OEM$ directory. It will load all IDE drivers, and then remove them after the install is done.

This goes in the sysprep.inf file:

;SetupMgrTag
[Unattended]
   DriverSigningPolicy=ignore
   OemPnPDriversPath=
"Type you driver path here."
   InstallFilesPath=C:sysprepi386
   TargetPath=WINNT

"This installs all the available IDE drivers for most all PC types"
