Windows 7: Capturing & Deploying Image with ImageX

12 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Capturing & Deploying Image with ImageX

Hi guys, need advice with the following scenario

A machine imaged, contains 2 user profiles (1xadmin and 1x user)
Installed with applications and hardened (local policy: disabled usb and so on for "user" profile)

We'd need to select "OOBE" in sysprep so that we can manually key in the unique details such as license key, machine name and so on. Then only we capture the image with ImageX.

After applying the image on machine, found that the hardening that was made is no longer effective
Whatever restrictions made in local policy is no longer effective.

Is this due to sysprep (generalize) ?
Is there a way where we can capture with local policy intact?
Is there any additional commands if we were to capture without generalizing? if it is due to it of course
As far as i know, sysprep/generalize is important because even if the machines are identical model, the device id would be different

Right now, i have a machine with 2 profiles, 1 admin and 1 user (where user cannot perform many actions) and i'd like to have the other machine with exact same configuration. Please advice...

I'm sorry i'm not so computer literate May have sound dumb at times
