Windows 7 image

Hello,

I've prepared a Windows 7 install and customized it. I've uploaded this image to the deployment server (MDT 2010).
I've reimaged a test computer to the new image and all is good except for my customizations. All is lost and Windows 7 installs with defaults.
How can I get Windows to keep its customizations?

This link shows the steps for creating a sysprep.xml file:  http://www.ehow.com/how_5392616_sysprep-machine-start-finish-v2.html

I basically used the waik, and then copied the syprep.xml file to the computer that is being used for the master image.  I used the following commands form the syprep directory: sysprep /quiet /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:sysprep.xml.  After running these commands you can upload the image to your server.

I do not use the audit mode to create the master image.

You just save it to where ever you want, and then copy it to the sysprep directory on the computer you are using to create the image.
