Windows 7 PE 32bit
Please help > Sysprep


I am trying to create a default profile for Windows 7 Professional. After customizing the image, I run "sysprep /audit /generalize /answerfile:c:\answerfile.xml /reboot". In the answerfile I have included the <CopyProfile>1</CopyProfile>

After that the computer restarts and the sysprep windows appears asking me to run OOBE.

When I run OOBE without the generalize switch, the customized profile is not copied to the default profile.

Can anyone explain me the difference between running "syspreb /oobe" with and without the generalize switch?

I tried searching on technet and other forums, but cannot find the answer I am looking for. Thanks for the replies in advance.
