hopefully someone can point out the thing i have missed about this
I built an image on a DELL 390 PC, sysprepped it then captured teh image on WDS.
I have a directory on the distribution share which has teh required drivers in for teh other target machines i will use
the path is as follows
XP-RETAIL-BASIC-NEW is the name of my image and the 'Drivers' directory contains 4 folders 'Sata' , 'Audio' , 'Chipset' and 'Video' these folders have the drivers extracted into them.
I deploy the image to a DELL XPS5 PC , without the 'OemPnPDriversPath' the system is missing the video card driver (even though base machine had the same one installed) and the sound card driver (which was not on the) base machine.
So i did some research and added the Video and Audio drivers for this PC to the above directories, i also added the 'UpdateInstalledDrivers=Yes' & 'DriverSigningPolicy=Ingore' (as the audio drivers are not signed), my unattended section looks like this
Now when i deploy and use this sysprep.inf , it stops half way through auto setup and prompts for this file 'NVCplSetupInt.exe' and points to this directory 'c:NVIDIADisplayDriver190.38international' which doesnt exist on the PC. I then point it back to the path in my sysprep.ini 'c:driversvideo' and it installs fine.
How can i make it look in the right place for 'NVCplSetupInt.exe' ?
now the audio, i have the correct files in my driversAudio directory but it doesnt seem to even try, if it manually point it to the driver directory that i setup the 2 audio devices (card and game port) install straight away. Why dont they install automatically ?
any help much appreciated , getting a headache form it now , i have tried all advice i have found so far and tried with and without various lines in sysprep.ini and switches for the sysprep.exe.
The only difference it made was that it didn;t stop in the mini setup, but when i logged in i just got new hardware found windows - very anoying
Please can anyone help, i hope i am just being a tool
