What Is SysPrep?

Answer Summary:

SysPrep is not an imaging utility, but a tool to prepare workstations for imaging. SysPrep prepares the hard disk on a computer so that the disk imaging utility can transfer an image of the hard disk to the other computers.
SysPrep is often looked at as a SID generation utility, but is actually far more advanced, providing a great deal of automation and control to the imaging and unattended installation process.
