Yeah, according to Technet it will allow the system to boot faster since it won't have to try and load unneeded drivers.

Thanks for all the work you did on this...

Now that I have the sysprep issue fixed, I can't find a system in my company that will not install this image.

This is a HUGE benefit to my company, and will save me a lot of time, effort, and drive space.

Now to get myself a USB2 external drive to make it even quicker...

This isn't kixtart FAQ material, but for those of us here in the admin buisness, it is just as important.

Glad I could help. Once you take the time to do it you'll never go back. It is easy to maintain and add new systems to as well. Now it'll just be a matter of adding the new drivers to your image.

Once I get my CorpPrep.kix finished I'll post it as well. I use it to install additional programs like CD burner software or Telnet applications that may not be on the standard image.

Vendors like Dell and IBM make a big deal about using their imaging services to manage your corporate image. Of course, thats fine if you have the money to spend. It also helps to "lock" you into them as a vendor.

I personally find it funny to see the look on their face when they ask how many images our company supports and I tell them "one." It just takes the wind out of thier sails. [Big Grin]
