    Hi there,

    I am trying to deploy an XP image using WDS. I have saved the sysprep.inf file in the relevant folder hierarchy and the computer seems to be picking it up when I’m deploying the image. However, an error message appears during setup saying that the new computer name entered is not properly formatted. I have specified the computer name on the sysprep.inf file to be %machinename% so that the computer can keep the original name assigned to it in active directory but it doesn’t seem to work.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Noor
