To do that with XP Pro you paid many thousands to MS for the privilege. That fee included some support so make the call and ask about such.
I am using sysprep and Ghost 7.5 to clone laptops for a mobile lab. The laptops are running XP Pro. After running sysprep the wireless network settings are lost and have to be reentered on each machine. As we have multiple access points this is time consuming. Also, after running sysprep a "runonce" page comes up when IE is launched and I have to select a search option and save the settings. When I finally get to the home page the phishing filter options page appears and has to be set. Windows Media Player also loses its settings and acts like it is being launched for the first time.
The machines are being used on a high school campus and will be "frozen" with Deep Freeze so these settings can't be left to the end users.
Is there a way to use sysprep and preserve all of these settings?
