Sysprep?

Hi,

First of all I like to say hello, this is my first post here! :party:

At moment I am trying to sysprep a customized branded installation of Windows 7 Pro 32Bit. But I dont understand what settings I need in the unattend file.
What I want is to use the settings from the local admin account (shortcusts in start menu and the taskbar) and the domain settings all ready. Because this will be installed by an external company who that does have access to our domain.
The Windows 7 sysprep does not at all work and are not configured in same way as in windows XP.

What I done is following:
1. Install with recovery discs
2. Joined computer to domain
3. Install software/drivers
4. Customized according to customer specification

All that is left is to sysprep, need it to change the computer name and regenerate SID.

I found someone in some other forum that used following unattendfile, I have modifyed it abit:

Yes, but it assume I made a clean installation, in my case I installed from IBM recovery DVD with drivers. And then modify according to my customers requirements, network settings and software.
As I mentioned in my post it starts using IBM sysprep answer file, don't want OOBE at all when I start.
It would be nice if I didnt have it, only want to transfer local admin profile to default user and have have normal login screen when I start my image on new computer that I have recovered to.
