Hi all, I am tony and new to this forum, can anyone inform me of what I need in my Sysprep inf file so Windows can detect my Mass Storage Device. My HP XW4400 has 2 SATA drive set in RAID configuration in the BIOS, have tried including the iastor drivers to my sysprep inf file and putting the drivers folder in my OEMDriversPath, alas to no avail. For my model the RAID controller is LSI Logic 3041e drivers, any help would be appreciated. Any assistance would be of great help as I feel there are many out there facing the same sort of problem.

1) Place the Sysprep binaries into C:\SYSPREP

2) Place all the XP drivers into C:\DRIVERS (See OEMPNPDriversPath below for driver subpaths. ie. C:\DRIVERS\AUDIO)

3) Create a SYSPREP.INF with at least the following contents and copy into C:\SYSPREP

4) Extract the LSI 3041e (SYMMPI) drivers into C:\DRIVERS\RAID. Extract ALL files for the sake of argument

5) Change directory to C:\SYSPREP and at the command-line type "SYSPREP -bmsd" minus the quotes

6) At the command-line, type "SYSPREP -mini -reseal -pnp -quiet" minus the quotes

7) When complete, it will automatically shutdown the system. Now clone the partition using ImageX or Ghost. For single partitions, I recommend WIM (Microsoft ImageX). For multiple partitions, Ghost/Ghost32 or any other imaging tool that clone sectors/tracks - A note of caution concerning Norton Ghost...when the image is huge, it can corrupt easily. I really hate Ghost - regardless of versions they all have issues.
