Windows 7: SysPrep Product ID question

06 Nov 2012   #11


Hi, I am more of a Backup Exec gal, but I think for what type of imaging and deployment needs something along the lines of Symantec Ghost better suited for your needs. Symantec System Recovery is more for a Disaster recover of individual machines.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I am having a similar issue. The clone machines are having similar product id. This is the command. sysprep.exe /generalize /oobe /shutdown. I am unable to create a new answer file from boot.wim. The boot.wim is from a custom windows iso. Error log when trying to add boot.wim in the windows image
1. How can I create a new answer file without boot.wim?
2. How do I resolve the similar product id problem?
