Audit mode is after you've sysprepped the machine and you want to either make changes or confirm that everything is ok.  ctrl-shift-f3 is how you would get into audit mode from the out of box experience (OOBE) screen.

Normally one would login as the administrator and then run windows easy transfer or usmt to gather the user's stuff, then run sysprep /genearalize and shutdown.. now you would boot from a windows pe disk and then create the image using imagex or gimagex (3rd party graphical imagex tool) and save the image onto a network share or usb drive

you can then boot from winpe on the new computer, use diskpart to create your partitions and then imagex /apply the saved image from before.  You have to do the bcdboot c:\windows to setup the boot items.  You can then restore the user files that you saved using easy transfer or usmt

Just a reminder that imaging rights only come with VL media and not OEM Operating Systems.
