Section 4 : Image before sysprep


  1. This is an optional step, however it is alot easier to restore an image of your current system to apply updates/modifications to before you run sysprep.  This also ensures that you don’t run into any activation issues (as mentioned earlier Windows 7 has a maximum number of 3 rearms before the image can no longer be sysprepped, rendering your image useless for deployment).
  2. Use your preferred PE boot environment to upload the image to a server
  3. Create an image of your Windows 7 installation.
