Sysprep not running in Win 7 Image Ghost deployment task

Created: 09 Aug 2012 | 2 comments

We have DS 7.1 environment and we are trying to deploy Win 7 ghost image with deploy Any Where enabled.

The problem is, sysprep doesnt run with custom unattend.xml and machine fails to login with GhostUser ID
when we manully logs on to the machine , machine asks for sysprep.

Hello Pratham

This kind on scenario has been seen before, somehow the DeployAnyWhere makes the image process different and the XML answer file is not processed.

Only workaround I know is to disable the DeployAnyWhere, there should be downsides when deploying Windows 7 because it can download nessecary drivers trough Windows Update pretty well.
