i've read somewhere (not sure where, can't find the link right now) that it is possible to do a type of sysprep with XP oobe and make the system image into a .wim file to be used like a standard windows vista / 7 install.wim is. does anyone have any dependable and accurate information regarding this or a tutorial? i'm sick and tired of using all these slow and undependable setup from usb methods for installing windows xp on devices that don't have cd/dvd drives. not only this, but i would like to make a system image into a .wim that has many of my installed programs and customizations present for using on multiple machines. any help greatly appreciated.
