    This is where I learned how to do it. I even downloaded the step by step video Vernalex.com - Welcome

    Hope that helps.

    You may also want to consider unattended installs instead of SysPrep.

    Since Windows Vista and later versions effectively just install a WIM and run a hardware detection phase during their normal install process, Sysprep no longer offers much of a speed improvement over an unattended build.
