  • sysprep mini-setup doesn't automatically add to domain.

    I'm having troubles getting my sysprep'd image of a Dell D420 to automatically join the domain.

    Do I need to provide the NIC driver or should it somehow use the one that is installed in Windows XP prior to the sysprep being taken?

    Code:
    ;SetupMgrTag
    [Unattended]
        OemSkipEula=Yes
        TargetPath=\WINDOWS
        DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
        InstallFilesPath=C:\sysprep\i386

        EncryptedAdminPassword=Yes
        OEMSkipRegional=1
        OEMDuplicatorstring=WINXP-SP3
        TimeZone=85

    Any assistance? Currently, my mini setup hangs at the networking stage for 4-5 minutes. I turned it off after that amount of time because I wasn't prepared to wait and reloaded my "pre-sysprep" image. I'm ready to make any changes and sysprep again. Any pointers?

    D420 has a Broadcom NIC which has no native Windows XP driver, but if you have it installed pre-sysprep it should still be there afterwards. Wouldn't expect that to be the issue.

      This might be a dumb question on my part, but does the sysprepadmin account have permission to add computers to the domain?

      Do you have a computer that you could let this image complete the mini setup on? I am curious to see if the network driver did load after the mini setup completes.

        Any domain user can add up to 10 computers to the domain, unless this setting has been disabled explicitly. If it's been used before it may have reached it's limit though.

          Further progress.

          It does add the machine to the domain eventually but sysprep hangs for 10-15 minutes during the installing network components stage.

          sysprepadmin is a domain admin. In light of the above, authentication seems fine it's just a delayed connectivity issue. WLAN/BT is off. I'm wondering whether the firewire connection might be causing the pause? Or is it a driver issue?

            Are you using the latest driver from Broadcom???

            In my experience Dell are always way behind with drivers for their laptops
