Q. I need to keep installed drivers on an OS even after running SYSPREP, how do I do this?
A. There may be scenarios where its critical drivers are not removed from an OS instance when SYSPREP is executed. To do this run the following prior to SYSPREP
- Move to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\Sysprep\Settings\sppnp
- Select Edit - New DWORD value
- Enter a name of PersistAllDeviceInstalls
- Set to a value of 1 and click OK
