I am having a problem with a Ripreped image of a PE 2950. Device Manager does
not like the RAID Driver (Dell Perc 5/i Integrated Rad Controller:
percsas.sys).

I slipstreamed SP2 so that I would have a flat RIS Image to load the 2950
with, adding the Dell Drivers for the RAID. All works fine. Device Manager is
happy, even after a reboote.
I then created a Riprep image from the 2950.

I then reran PXE boot to install the ripreped image. The system installs and
boots. However, after logging in the system says found new hardware (the RAID
device).
Device Manager has a ? for the device (same driver is shown as in the flat
image).
Trying to reload the driver as a result of the new hardware prompt does not
work (acces denied).

I checked \Windows\setupapi.log and saw:
  Processing add/delete section [percsas_Inst.ntx86.Services]
  E0333 Error 5: Access is denied
  E275 Error while installing services

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
