this is what i have done so far. got a win 7 dell pc, a vostro 400 to be precise. installed all apps and settings that we need on our desktops. then i used sysprep to run the OOBE and generalize switch, then booted into windows PE to capture an image .wim file of the entire isntallation. this .wim file is then saved onto a 16gb usb memory stick becuase its quite large, then using imagex i apply the image to the same pc same hardware etc and it completes with no errors. then the next time i restart i should be at the OOBE with the language settings etc etc but its just stuck on this dam "setup is starting services" rubbish!!! anyone had this problem or done any win 7 imaging yet? floppy drive is disabled, no usb devices plugged in apart from a keyboard. so im lost now, any help appreciated.
