In the past several years I have used ghost extensively on our network. I have a variety of PC's with different hardware specs. Some are Gateway, some Compaq etc.
I have never used Sysprep in tandem with my ghosting procedure and have come out largely unhurt so far. I.E. I've never had a situation occur where the culprit was an image that worked great on some PC's and not others because of a failure to utilize sysprep. Can anyone relate how I may be getting so lucky or is sysprep overrated.
