Follow up to bluescreening

  • I reached a work around to my bluescreenng-after-deploying problem. I had 4 models of computer bluescreen once they were imaged. The log files were all normal so that pointed to some other issue. I made the bluescreening go away by unchecking "rename computer" in deployment options but of course I would like the computer to be renamed. We don't use sysprep so there is no answer file. What causes the renaming to become a problem and is there a solution? I read in another post that not using sysprep eventually leads to problems with the imaging. Is this true and should we get more sophisticated to avoid these issues?

  • When sysprep isn't used, CloneDeploy changes the computername in the registry. I've never heard of this causing a blue screen. Sysprep would be your best bet though. CloneDeploy would modify the answer file with the updated name, avoiding the registry change, and probably resolve your issue.
