I have been working in my downtime on a hardware independent image using
a Zenworks Scripted image. I have come across a few problems that I
just cannot find a solution for, no matter how much research I do.

*First Problem* - When I send down the base XP image, made on a hp
dc7600, to a compaq 1020v laptop and a nc6000 laptop, they reboot and
lock up. In safe mode, they both lockup at the screen right before
they should kick over to the OS. I have tried everything found here..

I am currrently trying to use the 1020v laptop as my base image to see
if using the oldest model available solves this problem.

*Second Problem* - After a computer gets the base image and addon
image with all the proper settings. When a user does their first
login, Windows Media Player 10 loads an icon on the desktop and forces
all users to run through the setup. I have changed the group policy
for the workstation to disable these options, but I still get this
problem. I am thinking this is because of the user policy loaded
through Novell.

*Third Problem* - On a dc7100, the sysprep runs fine and loads all of
the right drivers, but when the computer boots the first time, it
changes all of the default video settings. The following has fixed
this problem for every other PC i have an addon image for, except this
model.

[Display]
Xresolution=1024
YResolution=768
BitsPerPel=32


*Fourth Problem* - How do I add an AOT as a ZMG to the scripted image?
I would like to install certain chains of programs dependant on the
site and room entered at the beginning of the scripted image.



Since this is a great place to share information, below is something
that took me a bit to get working properly, but works nicely for
renaming PC's fresh out of the box or at a site before imaging.

echo -e
"\n\n********************************************* *************************";
echo "**** WARNING. THIS PROCESS WILL DELETE ALL DATA ON YOUR COMPUTER
****";
echo -e
"************************************************* *********************\n\n";
echo "For any questions or concerns call ....";
echo -n "Would you like to reimage this computer? (y or n):";
read ANSWER;

if [ $ANSWER = "y" ]; then

ZISNAME=`zisview Name`

if test ! $ZISNAME; then
echo -e "No image-safe data found."
echo -e "Assumed to be a new workstation.\n"

while test ! $WSNAME; do
echo -n "Enter the workstation name: "
read WSNAME;
done;

if test $WSNAME; then
zisedit -c
zisedit Name=$WSNAME;
fi
else
WSNAME=
echo ""
echo "Computer Name: $ZISNAME"
echo ""

echo -n "Change Name (Enter Name to change; leave blank to skip):
"
read WSNAME

if test $WSNAME; then
echo "Name Changed to $WSNAME"
zisedit -c
zisedit Name=$WSNAME;
fi
fi





Under all of this I have the code for the imaging process. The hardest
part about getting this code to work was that without the "zisedit -c"
in there, it would constantly go back to the name the PC had before
running this script. Very Frustrating.



Thank you for any help you can give to my problems.
