Personally I'm not a fan of Sysprep, it resets too much of the operating
environment back to defaults that makes you waste a lot of time in
re-configuring it again. Why use an image if you have to spend time
redoing the setup?

Newsid (from sysinternals), as well as the version of Ghostwalk
(ghstwalk.exe) that comes w/ ghost 8.x work fine on Win2k3 boxes that
need to get renamed and assigned a new SID without having to re-config
the operating environment as much as sysprep.=20

They also work fine on systems w/ re-mapped drive letters.=20

Has anyone come up with a good work around for the SYSPREP 2.0 issue and
Windows Server 2003 with remapped drives?  I think I have come up with a
solution (actually two), and wanted to know if anyone has done the same.

1.  Use SYSPREP 1.1 (which has been reported to work with W2K3)

OR

2.  Edit HKLM\System\MountDevices and modify any "\DosDevices\x:" value
where X is the new drive letter.  Change X to the original mapped drive
letter (i.e. M) and reboot.  However, COM+ still appears to be screwed
up.  I found out that SYSPREP 2.0 does this "modification" prior to
rebooting into mini-setup or shutting down, depending on what you are
going to do next (i.e. get a GHOST image, or test the image).

Thanks,

Chris
