Does anyone know anything about this program? We are trying to change all the computers in our computing center to XP and are having problems getting the devices working properly. It gives a blue screen error but not long enough to get the exact error. Any help appreciated to make sure we're doing this right.

Are you doing an upgrade or a clean install?
Did you run the compatibility check to make sure the hardware was supported by XP?
Give some more info.

We are doing a clean install. We're trying to make a master image so we can install it on all 40 of our machines. They range from new P4 2.8 Dells all the way to P2 350s. The newer computers have 1 gig of RAM, the older have 256MB. A few have 128MB. Yeah it'll be slow but it'll run.

You can't use a master image to install XP on all your computers unless they are all EXACTLY the same setup. Because of the different drivers, etc required on the different computers, you are easier to do a fresh install of XP on all machines.
