    Windows 8 OEM issues - HELP

    I purchased 8 Windows 8.1 laptops for a primary school recently and noticed some odd things happening such as WSUS only displaying 1 of them at any one time.

    I think they may all have the same SID (not sure).

    I have just gone to run sysprep on one but that comes back and says it can not run on an OS that has been upgraded.

    Not sure what to try next.

    Thanks

    Try this: PsGetSid

    Run it with no parameters (from the command line) and it should give you the machine SID.

    Thanks. They all have the same SID. I presume running Sysprep will fix that?

    Yep, sysprep should do the trick.
