I will start out by saying I have received great help from several individuals on this website. I am still running into problems with LD9 SP1 and setting up HII.
Here are the steps I have taken:
Install Win 7 on a Optiplex 780
(according to instructions) Run Sysprep Audit and then install apps and make configuration changes to OS if needed
Once that is done, I shut down the workstation and create an image using WinPE
I create the script to Deploy image using HII and Sysprep
I set all the sysprep options and save script
Add to pxe menu and try to deploy
First problem - It does not set the time zone like I asked it to and I have no way of knowing if it used the MAK key I entered
Second problem - This image cannot be deployed to any other model computer - as soon as it boots, it restarts
Am I missing something here? I have browsed through all the help files for LD9, this site and anything else I could get my hands on. Maybe I just don't understand the whole sysprep process or maybe need to make modifications to the XML file because LANDesk is not creating it properly.
Let's start from here and see where the discussion leads. Please understand, I don't know what else I can read to understand this. I wouldn't think this process is so complicated. However, just from following the LD9 Best Known Method for Deploying Win 7 step by step is not working.
What am I doing wrong? I wish our support contract was renewed so I could actually speak to someone about this.
