Keep Win7 64-bit from using "Recommended" monitor setting on an imaged machine

    Damnable problem. In deploying Win 7 64-bit, I've noticed that even if
    the hardware is the same on a array of machines I have but their
    monitors are *slightly* different (or sometimes no different at all),
    it won't matter what you've frozen your monitor resolution to in the
    image. It will often decide to use the recommended setting and ignore
    whatever resolution you had when the image was frozen. Is there a way
    to make it stick with and retain the resolution you set it to and not
    change to recommended when it's imaged to a new machine? Google and
    the KB have been of no help. Anyone seen this and know of a fix?

    I was always of the opinion that the deploy-able image should be made
    with the standard MS VGA/SVGA driver, and usually at 1024x768
    resolution. Naturally this might require some customization on actual
    install, which,if properly done, can be more or less automatic.
    A continuing problem is that various driver versions (Video, etc.) may
    change several times between making the image, and full deployment.
