  1. the solution seems to be manually format disk after select the image by vista/win2008 interface. the other solution is to create an unattend.xml file with the correct string, but (for me) is not so easy...so I think I made the first one!
  2. I had the same problem! check if remote install folder (and child folders) are ok with permissions. I suggest to give full control for everyone.
  3. Hi everybody, I'm having a problem with wds and windows.old backup folder (and also with \programs files folder duplicated). I'm using wds on a windows server 2003 r2 to make and deploy images (vista and xp pro, x86) in a computer lab of my school. No problems with the deployment of a clean windows dvd image, because I can format the client's hard disk during the deploy operation, so I have a clean installation. I have some problems with the deployment of a custom image (I use to install the OS on a client pc, then I install all the drivers and appz, so I can prepare the image to be cloned and deployed with wds). when I deploy those images, after the deployment I obtain a duplicate of programs folder and a windows.old folder (with all the profiles, documents, etc), and (this one happens only with customized vista images, not with customized xp images) when the pc starts, I get a windows boot screen wich ask me to choose to starts vista or previous system (xp). If I choose nothing, vista starts, if i choose xp, the pc hangs because the old xp system is not present... how can I avoid this? I want a perfect image of a pc, without any backup folder and without boot screen! I think it's simply necessary to add a string to sysprep.ini with a format command...but I've found nothing on setupmgr.exe and sysprep.exe menu... can u help me? (sorry for my bad english, I'm italian and my english sucks...) thanks in advance!
