Refer to the docs. for full syntax.

Fully install NT on a reference machine (same hardware and system root  as target rollout machines). Run sysdiff /snap.

This creates a snapshot of your system.

Customise the system and install and config your applications.

Record these modifications by using sysdiff /diff.

Use sysdiff /apply as part of an unattended setup to customise
subsequent installations.

Alternatively sysdiff /apply can be applied after installation.


Windiff on the other hand has a totally different purpose. It is
used for comparing files and directories.
