On your Capture source machine it won't boot because the wrong partition got marked as active. Use Diskpart to mark the Recovery partition as active not the partitition with the OS installed. This all happens because in the script Landesk makes there is a line with assvol in it that makrs the OS drive as Active. My opinion is this is a leftover from XP days.
For your Deploy, Sysprep is supposed to remove the drivers, you'll have to use HII imaging to reload drivers on the image during Sysprep.
Thanks for the information. I will try your suggestions and post back any other issues. I appeciate the response.
OK some questions. I checked the partitions before capture and revovery is marked active, so I assume that we have to mark it active, after or during capture. How can that be accomplished?
I have not got to HII, so I cannot verify that it will work for my driver issue. It is odd that OSD has worked on other models of Dell without HII with no hitch in the driver area.
Is there an alternative for the driver injection as you have recommended
Well I tried doing the deployment using sysprep OOBE generalize and the partition problem went away. As well all the drivers remained intact except for video.
I added something to this other discussion that may be of some help to you. I think adding a line to the unattend.xml file, calling a batch file, or dpinst32.exe directly is what you need.
