hi webuser,

 

if you understand how SCCM works then the following guide should help you

 

give it a try at least and let us know does it work or not, If I have time to do an XP guide I will, but right now I don't....

 

 

cheers

cool tutorials you made! I red them all ;)

 

But what interest me is the deployment of winxp with SCCM. I've got several questions;

  • can you install software on base image?
  • what is in the sysprep image? how to create one?
  • how to add the masstorage drivers?
  • can you do a hal check?
  • can you also execute a reg or cmd for setting some registry keys or links in xp?

to try and answer your questions

 

* can you install software on base image?

 

yup, and theres a few ways of doing it, you could install XP by hand, install some software, then capture the machine using imagex or Windows Deployment Services, as long as you end up with a captured WIM file you can use that to deploy...

 

* what is in the sysprep image? how to create one?

 

follow part one and two of the guide i posted, the sysprepped image merely prepares the computer for mass deployment and allows you to add some drivers for the hardware in question all nicely packaged...

 

* how to add the masstorage drivers? they can be added via sysprep

 

* can you do a hal check?

* can you also execute a reg or cmd for setting some registry keys or links in xp?

 

absolutely, use the sysprep.inf file for that

 

here's a sample... http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=285

So, if I understand, I can install office2003 on 1 machine, make a capture and deploy that image to other machines? Will those machines have the same Office 2003 ID's? The installation of a program is individual, no? :huh:

you'll have to test it sorry, I would use SCCM itself to deploy major applications like Office 2003, that way you have full control of it.
