    Stage and Repair of Windows XP Service Pack 3....


      I have been tasked to deploy "Windows XP Service Pack 3" to around 4000 plus machines based all over the South Africa via LANDesk Management Suite, and between sites, a number of regions and offices scattered everywhere with varying linespeed and bandwidth available and all kinds of other limitations and restrictions i have tried a number of different ways to delpoy this service all with thier own varying results.


      I have the standard Stage and Repair task with forcing a peer download all with its own degree of success and what I have noticed that the staging of the XP SP3 (WindowsXP-KB936929-x86.exe) I accomplish 80% + success rate but when moving the machines to the repair task i have a dismal result in success with a range of failure reports to go with them.


      So knowing that Windows XP SP3 has a number of strict prerequisites i created a software distribution package with the following switches "/quiet /warnrestart[:5000] /overwriteoem /forceappsclose" but this also has varied results of successes and failures.


      is there any other way someone could advise me to improve the daily installation number of successes .
