    One thing I have found is name Brand PC's often dont like having sysprep rerun, they appear to throw a big hissy fit Sometimes on machines that have a image that has had sysprep run previously I also find it sometimes fails - bit of a bummer when that happens.

    What I previously wrote, I ran out of time to edit, so one stage is ever so slightly wrong ( extra reboot), but it should have read - generally I run Audit mode first if its a new Image going on different hardware / end user, remove the account that was used to create the setup/install, then select OOBE/Generlise / shutdown - create a image using a bootable CD, Imaging software ( Active@disk Image) or WINPE , load in the image to the new hardware then when it boots it asks for user details, COA etc.

    Always a bit "Iffy" doing it on an existing machine thats had usage, sometime things go wrong, and it really buggers things if it fails. Thats why I always take a clone of the drive first, just in case.

    Havent tried the Audit mode, might be good idea, as the image i have on WDS is like a couple of versions in and yes, I have to use a different user account when it starts up first time....!
