Have 5 new, identical PC's. Loaded one with Win Xp and all of the software and settings required. The ran SySPrep to remove the serial number and reseal, ready to be imaged and put onto all PC's. Expecting then to enter licence key on each machine when it booted. I used the acronis boot CD to enable me to create an image of the PC before it booted back up, so still ready for serial key, pc name etc in installation mode. The image file was copied onto a removable drive, which I then used to create my master image. Tried my first PC, botted with Acronis, then placed the image file into the CD drive, selected the image file and went throught the process og re imaging the new blank PC. Process ended with sucess and rebooted. The PC boots as far as the windows screen with progress bar, and it gets about 5 or 6 segments into the load and then reboots my PC. It will not boot into Windows via safe mode either. Can anyone help. I am basically trying to ease the process of installing xp and other components onto 5 identical PC. Where have I gone wrong?
