Tried hardware independent imaging a while back with not much luck. Giving it another go using a Dell Optiplex 790.

Already contacted Dell and they gave me all the correct drivers and specified an order for the first two drivers. Of course most of the software is an exe or msi.

Went ahead and extracted all of the inf files with Dell's help and placed in a overlay/add-on image.

Ran the sysprep with the modified ini file and created a base image.

Restored the image to another 790 and then applied the add-on driver image. Sometimes it will find some of the drivers and then at other times it won't find any.

I can actually update update the drivers manually using the inf files that are placed on the hard drive by the add-on image.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
