Windows 7: Windows 7n Enterprise - Sys Prep?

Windows 7n Enterprise - Sys Prep?

Hi all,

I am working on a project for a school system. The school is buying HP systems with Windows 7 Pro stickers. However, the school decided to load Windows 7N Enterprise.

Do these systems need to be Sys Prep'd? When I perform the Sys Prep it clears out some of the personalized settings the customer setup.

I'm not familiar with Windows 7 Enterprise.

Let me know how to handle this situation.

Be sure to keep us informed.

Just hold the shift key and press the F10 key at this screen instead of going through the whole repair setup.
