Windows 7 and Windows XP Re-Image Machine?

I find that there will probably be an issue if I (for example) need to re-image a machine. It would be rather difficult for me to have the laptop PXE boot to this network for imaging purposes.


I had setup an image of an XP machine on DVD, but I am unfamiliar with sysprep for XP and haven't run it. The image I have is for one laptop with the Product Key already installed.

[Admin Edit - Vee-Mod]

And the other laptop for PoC will be Windows 7 (64bit). There seems to be much more documentation on Windows 7 with MDT and sysprep.
I've read a lot on the subject, but I don't have SCCM, so some of them just don't relate.

Can anyone give me advice on what needs to be done? Thanks

To image XP, I highly suggest something like nLite. The nature of imaging is difficult in XP because of hardware drives. Vista/7 remedied this.

Anywho, for XP use nLite.

For Windows 7, follow this guide:
