What is Sysprep (System Preparation Tool)?
The System Preparation Tool is a program developed by Microsoft, which is mostly used by system administrators.
Sysprep allows you to quickly install or deploy an operating system on computers with the same hardware in the organization.
The operating system installed on one computer capture using Sysprep and easily distribute to other computers in the same location.
You need a third-party program to distribute the operating system you created with Sysprep to other computers.
What Does Sysprep Do?
This will take a long time if you want to install an operating system on your computer without using Sysprep. Because you need to install a separate Windows operating system on each computer.
When you install a normally operating system, each user account SID that you create will be different. However, if you make a setup with System Preparation Tool, the user SID numbers will conflict.
Therefore, you need to understand what Sysprep does. When preparing a computer with this tool, you must select the Generalize option and shut down the computer.
