Windows 10: W10pro + ghost + sysprep

    W10pro + ghost + sysprep

    Hi all, looking for some help.
    Imaging with ghost 11.5 (yes I know it's obsolete) and sysprep is stripping out way too much. Back in the day just used to use -pnp switch which was awesome. Need the boxes fully loaded with local apps and local user accounts retained.
    So far can image with a bootable USB, with a batch file for ghost 11.5 running off the USB in freedos and the .gho on the USB as well. It's when I sysprep it that it dies. Tried an unattend file in sysprep and a simple reboot to test before creating the image and that won't even boot. Used a online generator to create the unattend file as don't know xml enough to create my own. It reads the file but still won't boot.
    Ok, hope I explained it enough and thanx in advance.

    Exit the Dark Ages and use Macrium Reflect Free.Very few old programmes work problem free with Win10.

    Norton Ghost never had UEFI support. I doubt it even has driver support for modern pcs in legacy bios.

    Time to consign that to the great bit bucket in the sky!

    Use Macrium Reflect Free.

    Thanx for the replies. I'm using that ver of ghost as it's the last one that works in freedos....I changed bios so it reads the usb....created a fat partion on the usb that has freedos ghost and the batch file and made an ntfs partition that can hold the big image said earlier must have local apps and local user accounts retained and does not join to a domain....what happens if I just image them all the same without sysprep and rename the workstation and the local user accounts. ..will this cause issues?
