    What's that command?

    There's a command or tool to force Win2k to uninstall all hardware devices so that next boot it will re-detect everything again - this would save me loads of time for rebuilding my PC at work.

    What's the command/tool??

    If you mean you want the mini setup with the PNP detection on reboot like when your imaging machines? Then Sysprep.

    the OEM tools (including sysprep) are difficult to obtain - usually they come on an extra CD provided with 3-packs of OEM MS OS's. i'm now a dab hand with the XP OPK, of which Sysprep for XP forms part.

    Does that mean you can give me directions for using it with Win2k Pro?

    Nevermind, found loads of useful information here: http://www.windowsreinstall.com/inst...oard/win2k.htm

    Sysprep is included in the MS install CD - In the support folder, zipped in a file called deploy.

    That's on both 2k and XP.
