We currently in process of moving some of our computers over to Windows 7 from XP. Some of the people "need" to have Win7-32. For the most part everything works fine. I have two Windows 7 images in the PXE menu to choose from and I have added the 32 bit and 64 bit drivers into the driver library. However, on certain models, say the Latitude E5500 and ProBook 6560p, I get some weird errors.
On the ProBook if I have the 32 bit and 64 bit drivers associated in the manage drivers area I get an error message:
Windows could not parse or process the unattend answer file [C:\unattend.xml]. (or sometimes C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\Panther\)
The answer file is invalid. The error was detected on line # column # of the answer file. (Line and column numbers change).
When I remove all the 32 driver associations it will work fine with 64 bit and vice versa.
On the Latitude I get an error message that the computer restarted because on an error message during the Windows setup then you click OK and it reboots again. Remove the 32 bit drivers and it works fine.
So, I think the problem is when I have 32 bit and 64 bit drivers associated with one model. How does HII handle the different drivers? Has anybody else had this problem?
