Prepare a conmputer like a oem does?
So for work i do a LOT of computer re-setup where i take a computer install windows 7, office 2010, essential software, drivers etc. Then i activate all the software then image it with acronis true image so that i can restore it to multiple harddrives 20+. But i was wondering if there was a way i could do all of this then have it so when the person turns on the computer it comes up with the screen where you can choose your time zone keyboard username computer name etc.

Sysprep - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
If you intend to transfer a Windows image to a different computer, you must run sysprep /generalize, even if the computer has the same hardware configuration. The sysprep /generalize command removes unique information from your Windows installation, which enables you to reuse that image on different computers. The next time you boot the Windows image, the specialize configuration pass runs. During this configuration pass, many components have actions that must be processed when you boot a Windows image on a new computer. Any method of moving a Windows image to a new computer, either through imaging, hard disk duplication, or other method, must be prepared with the sysprep /generalize command. Moving or copying a Windows image to a different computer without running sysprep /generalize is not supported.
Sysprep Command-Line Options
The following command-line options are available for Sysprep:
sysprep.exe [/oobe | /audit] [/generalize] [/reboot | /shutdown | /quit] [/quiet] [/unattend:answerfile]
