I captured an image and will be deploying to "like" pc's. This image already has user accounts added with specific options for each user (based on which user is logged on) and is running an OEM win 7 version so I don't need to activate. How can I run sysprep to just clear the SID's so it's picked up from the new pc the image is deployed to?

Thanks

I think you are soposed to run the sysprep just before you capture the image, that is at least how I remember it (a looong time since I've done a sysprep)

That's correct. I want to run sysprep prior to capturing a fresh image but I don't want the Out of box Experience on start up. Just want the SID's changed.

Thanks.

rjobe,

Why don't you sysprep with an answer file?

This will clear all the machine specific data and take care of OOBE.

Plus if your running Win7 it'll make your image hardware Independent.

Found the problem!!! The PC's I'm using are the Motion CL900 Tablets which come with the OEM version of Win 7. They have installed their own Unattended answer file and created other OEM things in the OS so every time I tried running sysprep with my answer file it would revert to theirs and disregard mine. Deleted the other file and renamed a few oem folders for testing and magic!!! Mine worked. The only two issue I still see is it puts OEM Pinned Icons back on the taskbar so I have to delete them again in each profile and it doesn't ask me for a Computer Name on first start after sysprep.
Any ideas how to make these happen (or not happen)?
