  1. That's ok ... Do you know any alternatives or URL's to some kind of best practices?
  2. Hmm - seems the driverpacks are not x64 compliant?
  3. Hi Jazkal I get the idea of adding drivers to the WinPE image. What I need, is a universal WinXP x64 image, which I can add all necessary drivers to. Then let the XP installation detect which hardware needs to be installed. Is that possible with .wim imaging? // preben
  4. Ok, the x86 version of nslookup.exe won't run under winpe x64, but i fixed it by adding a "copy c:\windows\system32\nslookup.exe x:\windows\system32\nslookup.exe /Y" after applying the image on the harddrive. Cool Can I make a dynamic image that will fit all my x64 machines, or do I have to do some code to determine which image i should apply? // preben
  5. OK guys, i've managed to code my first VBScript \o/ What it does: Run ipconfig -> tempfile strip out ipaddress Run nslookup on that result -> tempfile strip out the hostname from fqdn search sysprep.inf for "ComputerName=default" and replace it with "ComputerName=" & sHostname It works like a charm ... in Windows XP because there is no f***** nslookup in WinPE ... ? Dudes, how do you solve this one? Anyone interested in a copy of the script? // preben
  6. In one of your first posts, you mention that I can make use of "some scripting language" to modify the hostname. I made a PHP-script, which is able to change the file content, but the problem is that I can't get php.exe to run under WinPE. It is probably some x64-issue? What scripting language do you prefer for WinPE tricks?
  7. Oh, I forgot this: I found a nice tutorial on getting tftpd-hpa on linux to work with windows pe ... it's in swedish, but it helped me http://www.itproffs.se/forumv2/tm.aspx?m=8...key=𖀁
  8. Hi kaiser, and thank you for your reply I am using the Windows PE which comes with Windows Vista AIK, which can be downloaded from Microsoft's website. I assume that it might be version 2.0? How do I make it work like RIS, so that I can decide the computer's name? This is my biggest issue at the moment. Thank you in advance // Preben I would try to use some scripting language to modify $winnt$.inf (should be in the windows\system32 dir) after applying the image. Thats the place sysprep.inf gets copied to (IIRC, search the docs). Using a script language to modify that file would have the advantage that you dont have to wait for the reboot to be done, instead you can set the new computername directly from your WinPE session. This is all based on having a sysprepped image. I don't think I got this one right. I created the c:\sysprep-folder, and copied the windows xp deployment tools there. Then I created the sysprep.inf with the setup manager which was also placed in c:\sysprep After that: sysprep -mini -quiet -reseal -reboot Boot up the WinPE-image over PXE (wee, works fine now ) Then I examined the c:\windows\system32\$winnt$.inf and realized that it did -not- contain any information about the computername? It took the computername from my sysprep.inf indstead. Should I just modify that file? // preben

  10. Hi guys My setup is: - DHCP and DNS running on a Linux server using isc-dhcpd and bind9 - DC running on a Windows 2003 Server Standard - WDS running on another Windows 2003 Server Standard with the R2 package installed - not used ... yet? I have 15 Dell 1950 servers with the exact same hardware configuration. I want them to do this: - The machine boots, I press F12 to boot from PXE, which is handled by the pxelinux manager - I choose that I want to redeploy an image with Windows XP x64 to the local harddrive - Windows PE with all the necessary drivers loads up and does the partitioning and reads an image from a network share - It logs the computer onto our domain and places the computer in a default OU with an auto generated hostname - All I need to do, is to press F12, and choose redeploy (of course drink coffee etc. etc.) Is this possible? I have made a WindowsPE boot cd which does the partitioning and reads the image off of a SMB share. This works fine, but how do I make the rest of the setup unattended? Thanks in advance Happy sysadminday btw ... it's the last Friday of July today // preben
