Sysprep

by

Probably not going to use this one again for a while….

Sysprep – Build a PC to the right specs, software, updates, etc and then want to make an image to install on multiple machines. This is the puppy to use.

I built a PC with Windows XP SP2 so I had to activate it to get it to SP3. I installed all the updates, Adobe, Java, blah, blah.

Installed Sysprep from Microsoft.com (search for Windows XP SP3 deployment tools).

Once you’re ready drop to a DOS prompt and run this;

sysprep -activated -reseal

-activated wipes the activation so you can add a new key.

-reseal wipes eventlogs and runs the mini setup for Windows so you can add admin passwords and/or user accounts
