    Editing Sysprep'd Windows 7 Images

    Does Anyone know if i can edit offline windows 7 images that i have already sysprep'd, like what you can with XP by just editing the sysprep.inf?

    Ive tried editing the original unattend.xml that i created for sysprep in C:\Windows\system32\sysprep but when i deploy the image,it doesn't pick up the changes that i make. eg: changing the computer name

    Is there another file that i have to change?

    Thanks

    On my deployment software I can browse the files of the image, add, remove or edit files. For XP images, I would just edit the sysprep.inf file.

    You can mount the WIM image using imagex.exe which is part of the Windows AIK. You can use this to mount the WIM, edit the file and then seal it again which should do what you are after, you can even use it to inject drivers and windows updates without the hassle of spinning it up again.
