    Sysprep and cloned OS

    I am setting up some computers that has to be locked down tight with local GPO. They are in a non-domain network and is only on the Internet. Can I just clone the drives from one to the others without problems like dual SIDs? Do I need to run sysprep?

    Unless pcs are identical you will get driver issues.

    Paid versions of Macrium Reflect Free or similar allow deployment of image backups to dissimilar hardware.

    Could be cheaper than the time invested in using sysprep etc.
