Almost Automated naming during Sysprep

I'm new to automated imaging.

I'm looking for a way to allow me to enter the company provided asset tag manually, as well as the build package that I would like, and then have sysprep name the machine for me.

Ideally, what I would like, is for sysprep to determine the make of the machine and incorporate that make into our naming convention (LT- or WS-) along with the already entered asset information (e.g. LT-XXXXX).  I have seen this done before, but I'm not sure how to go about it.  Further, I would like to add features to the laptop model that would differ from that of a regular workstation, like RDP, wireless, and VPN settings (is this possible?).

Currently I am working with an image that I have created in Hyper-V and I am creating my answer file with WAIK.

Please forgive me if I have left anything out.

Hi,

have you tried WDS (Windows Deployment Server) - which is a role in Windows server ?
you set up your pxe, make your answer files, tell the machine to create an account in ad and tell it which image to use, and so on..
it works really fine :)
