SYSPREP is inbuilt to windows 7 these days so I have a tendancy to use it.  To do the imaging I would use clonezilla as it is shareware.
Sorry, meant to say it also does multicasts etc so you can do batches at a time.

Are you going to be using any type of server to upload the image to i.e Server 2008 with WDS?

Regarding the serial if its not a Volume Licence then I am afraid you are going to have to type in the individual Keys that come with the Computers otherwise you will be breaking microsofts terms. But as long as you sysprep the machine after you have imaged them you will be presented to enter the licence key on the first window.

What about the option of KMS is that something you could consider? As long as you are licenced for this of course.
