[Sysprep]

The [Sysprep] section contains an entry for automatically generating the entries in the pre-existing [SysprepMassStorage] section and then installing those mass-storage controllers.

BuildMassStorageSection

Generates the entries in the [SysprepMassStorage] section from the Plug and Play hardware IDs specified in the Machine.inf, Scsi.inf, Pnpscsi.inf, and Mshdc.inf files, and installs each of these mass-storage controllers.

Syntax

                BuildMassStorageSection = Yes | No

 

Value Description

Yes

Populates a pre-existing [SysprepMassStorage] section with the hardware IDs specified in the Machine.inf, Scsi.inf, Pnpscsi.inf, and Mshdc.inf files, and installs those mass-storage controllers.

No

Does not populate the [SysprepMassStorage] section.

Example
[Sysprep]
BuildMassStorageSection = Yes

[SysprepMassStorage]
Comments

You can run the Sysprep -bmsd command instead of including the BuildMassStorageSection entry in your Sysprep.inf file. When you run the Sysprep -bmsd command, Sysprep populates a pre-existing [SysprepMassStorage] section, but the mass-storage controllers are not installed until the next time you run Sysprep. You can then delete items from this section before running the Sysprep -reseal or Sysprep -factory command on this installation. Installing a smaller number of items in the critical device database reduces the time required for this image to restart into the operating system.
