Sysprep may cause early balding.
Posted Thu, 02 Oct 2008
If you read the docs on using sysprep/wsim/windows aik/whatever, they all point you at building a 'reference computer' which entails lots of manual work modifying settings and installing things. Sysprep can make useless all of your precious work? Sweet!
I'm just glad most of the things I've done to this system were automated so I can just reinstall and rerun the scripts.
