How to create a standard image for all kind of PC

Posted: 03-04-2004, 03:41 AM
Hi
I need help and advise on how to create a standard image (using Ghost or Powerquest Drive Image) that can be used across all PC

I have tried create a image after Sysprep using a HP Vectra PC and then ghost over to another IBM Netvista PC and Win XP do not start up. My purpose is to reduce the number of different images for different PCs

Thanks.

Greetings --

This cannot be done with WinXP. WinXP, like Win2K before it, is
not nearly as "promiscuous" as Win9x when it comes to accepting any
old hardware configuration you throw at it. On installation, WinXP
_must_ "tailor" itself to the specific hardware found.
