Hello all,

I know from discussions on here that many people have or are thinking about deploying Windows 7, changing from Windows XP. The Sysprep process however is very different with Windows 7 and by default there's no method to specify a computer name before joining your network domain. Below is how to do it all from start to finish:

1. From your Windows 7 Pro SP1 disc (volume license) copy the install_Windows 7 PROFESSIONAL.clg file from the \Sources\ folder into: C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\

2. Download Mysysprep2 here (scroll down the page) and extract MySysprep.exe into: C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\

3. Open up Notepad and paste the code below. Save the file as Sysprep.cmd in C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\
Code:
@echo off
mysysprep /oobe /generalize /unattend:c:\windows\system32\sysprep\unattend.xml
4. Open up Notepad and paste the code below. Save the file as unattend.xml in C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\
Code:

</unattend></pre> </div>You just need to search/change the following:<br /> <br />
LOCAL USERNAME - A suitable local account, such as for teachers when they're working from home<br />
SCHOOL NAME - Enter your school name<br />
%Please input a computer name% - Leave this as it is!<br />
DOMAIN - Enter your domain name<br />
ADMINISTRATOR - Specify the domain administrator account (if renamed)<br />
PASSWORD - Specify the domain administrator password<br /> <br />
Run the Sysprep.cmd file and Sysprep will start as normal. When the computer reboots, it'll prompt you for a computer name (of your choice), then join your domain. Windows 7 is then ready to be activated with a KMS server.<br /> <br />
The machine will be added to the Computers container where you can move it as required. You can specify an OU, but as all networks are different, I've tried to keep this as simple as possible!<br /> <br />
I hope this helps some of you! Good luck with your Windows 7 deployment!<!-- google_ad_section_end --> </blockquote> </div> </div> </div> <div class="after_content"> </div> <div class="cleardiv"></div> </div> </div> <div class="postfoot">  <div class="textcontrols floatcontainer"> <span class="postcontrols"> <img style="display:none" id="progress_710671" src="http://awscdn.cdngeek.net/images/misc/progress.gif" alt="" /> </span> <span class="postlinking"> <link type="text/css" href="http://awscdn.cdngeek.net/clientscript/vbulletin_css/style00077l/dbtech_vbsuper_pm_postbit.css" rel="stylesheet" /> <a class="vbsuperpmpostbit" title="Send A Private Message To Michael" rel="nofollow" href="http://www.edugeek.net/private.php?do=newpm&amp;u=452"> <img src="http://www.edugeek.net/clear.gif" />
