Sysprep Windows 7
Here is a guide on how to run sysprep on a Windows 7 computer. Sysprep is a tool/program developed for administrators who need to install Windows operating systems automatically on multiple computers. The smart thing about sysprep is that you can install programs, etc. and seal the installation again, that way you get the computer ready for the end user who then has to enter the name and Windows license code.
1. Start by walking in “Computer” or “Explorer“, here you need to find out “sysprep”. This we do this path: C:WindowsSystem32sysprep then double click “sysprep.exe”
2. Now start sysprep (system preparation tool 3.14), here you need to select “Out Of Box Experience”. If you want to get a new SID be sure to check the box “Generalize”.
3. Now it is running a bit, and finally it restarts. If it comes with an error during sysprep preparation, the error can be yours “Microsoft media player”. If that process/Service is running in the task manager, sysprep comes with an error (or it came for me). I completed this process/Service and everything was ok, others on the web say it’s called “wmpnscfg.exe”. Remember to look in the tabs “Processes & amp; Services“, it can run both places.
4. There are many who say it still does not work, and have also been out for it keeps restarting. Think maybe it has something to do with what one installed etc. before running a sysprep. Please give your opinions and experiences.
