Windows 10: Sysrep - cloning to identical 50 machines

    Sysrep - cloning to identical 50 machines

    I have read your , very well done, "Windows 10: Customize Windows 10 Image in Audit Mode with Sysprep" tutorial .
    I have just a couple of questions:

    1) Is there a way to deploy the image cleaned by sysrep to 50 identical machines avoiding the first starting initialisation steps? Is there a way to included in the image also a second local not admin account ?

    2) With Windows 10 version 1607 I have to use/force the GPO to deploy the /unattend:customize.xml file? Am I right?

    If there are no answers here, you can try -- I think there is a server forum -- simply indicate wanting some more input to your question set. Let both boards know you have two threads on The 'Net :)

    I think the process used by OEMs of having cloned drives available for a number of identical computers would fit the bill, probably use some type of hardware for the cloning. I have an Eaxer USB dock for hardware cloning, can't be connected to a computer but clones drive 1 to drive 2 exactly. If cloning 500GB to 1TB it creates identical partitions, can't manipulate them which leaves unallocated space on the bigger drive. But it does take awhile.

    Berton, as you implied, one can fix the unallocated problem, however, I add: it does involve some geek-work.
