Windows 7, OSD, LD 8.8sp4, ImageX, DPInst.exe, unattend.xml, dpinst.xml, sysprep
(i think i covered every possible search variable)
(rant: why is it I can never find what I'm looking for? I need some Google 101 search training or LANDesk forum 101 training)
Ok, enough rant. I'm working with above mentioned tools/methods/setup.
I've built my 2 images on older hardware (Windows 7 32bit = Latitude D610 single core processor, IDE drive) (Windows 7 64bit = Latitude D620 Core 2 duo, SATA drive)
I'm deploying my image to a DELL Precision T1500 desktop (intel CORE I5, SATA drive ***i don't know if SATA I, or SATA II****) and my deployment of the image works fine. It boots up momentarily to the swirly pretty lights that eventually would make a standard Windows logo (gotta love that description!). but it never gets to make the pretty logo.
right there is where it reboots. consistently.
this image is sysprep'd once in audit mode - NO unattend.xml file yet (this will come later after I get beyond this problem).
Why doesn't it boot? It works fine on an equivalent machine (example: HP 6910p laptop), but doesn't want to boot with this "newer" hardware.
Yes, I have toy'd with the ATA, AHCI setting in the BIOS (no change).
Please, does anyone have any ideas what I could be possibly missing?
