Hi there, I am trying to force windows 7 & 8 too boot into sysprep on first boot after being deployed and before putting in Keys or anything. Is this even possible?
I am not using a capture image as our systems are too different from each other. I have tried using MDT and adding the tasks in the unattend.xml with audit and OOBE but neither seems to work. I know I can press ctrl shift F3 when it reaches the point when it asks me for a key but I want to automate that (kinda) and also wonder if i can still run automated installs of programs after it?

Running sysprep isn't going to magically pull drivers out of thin air, you still need to collect them and put them somewhere.

Exactly, agree with JoeZeppy.

Note - the method used in the blog is one way (best IMHO and clean).
