Use the System Preparation tool (Sysprep), included with the Microsoft® Windows® operating system, to perform image-based installations when you want to install identical operating systems and software configurations on multiple computers as quickly as possible. By carefully planning and designing your image-based installation, you can accommodate hardware and software differences among computers, minimize end-user interaction during installation, and reduce the number of images you have to manage.
