    I seem to have an annoying problem deploying WDS on a network. The scenario is as follows:

    • Image is built on a reference machine in audit mode with all updates etcetera
    • Computer is removed from the domain and restarted
    • Sysprep is run with generalize and OOBE switches
    • Image is captured to WDS server with capture image
    • New machine is booted to WDS server from PXE with boot image
    • The image captured is deployed successfully

    The issue? The computer name it uses is grabbed from a completely random machine already on the network and subsequently knocks this machine off of the network.

    What the heck? :eek:
