Deploying XP SP3 to Dell Optiplex 760

Posted: 02-06-2009, 12:54 PM
Hi

I am trying to deploy XP SP3 to a Dell Optiplex 760. I have build and
deployed to the Optiplex 745 without any problems. When I boot from the 760
and connect to the Deployment Workbench machine all goes well and the files
are copied across to the Optiplex 760 without any problems. When the 760
reboots and starts to run the XP setup I get past the 'Press F6' for
additional drivers stage and then setup reports that nvrd32.sys cannot be
found and setup canot continue tellin me to reboot. The file is present on
the hard disk in both WIN_NT$.~BT and WIN_NT$.~LS as I have booted WINPE and
checked.

If I edit the txtsetup.sif file and remove references to nvrd32.sys then it
goes on to report that cdrom.sys is missing, which is, so I add it manually
and it still doesn't find it.

If I boot the 760 from the XP install CD that it cam with XP setup runs just
fine and it is this that I have used to create the install on the Deployment
Workbench.

I have adding the SATA disk drivers into the Deployment Workbench build so
they get installed during the 'text mode' part of setup but get the same
errors.

I really would like some help as I have tried everything I can think of.

Regards

Jim
