Make the image on the disk. In this case, and LPr to an LH3. Only diff in these systems was really the RAID board. Put the image in the cage, configure the array just like it was on the LPr. Put in the Windows 2000 Server boot CD.. ( I know, I know :-) ). Continue like you are going to do a new install, only select the option to repair the found version of Windows. That process takes about 5 mins. Reboot.. and the mini-setup wizard takes over, everything comes up great. Apps still there, everything like it should be. Had to re-apply SP2.
So, all in all, the process took about 10 mins more than it would if I had been able to use the Ghosted sysprepped image from the get go. Considering how long it takes to configure all the apps..it at least was a time savings...
still hunting for a better solution.
