CLONEZILLA restore image and re-join to win2003 domain

Medium Priority

Hello to All,
on a large LAN (600 pc) with windows xp sp3 and windows 2003 r2 network, I've saved the image with clonezilla on usb disks. However when I try to restore one of pc, the logon authentication fails due to, I suppose, sid not restored.
Now my question is: log on as local administrator, should be enough re join onto domain using the standard procedure on System Properties (button Change for renaming or join to domain) ?
Or need to run sysprep in any case ? I need only restore the pc from image previously created
(one per pc).
Thanks in advance and Best Regards.

Thank you very much but I'm quite happy with clonezilla and I have 600 pcs with images saved on usb disks for quick recovery. I'm not interest in other solution, for the moment

What do you mean by external tool?
It from Microsoft itself.

Or else you have to use Sysprep
