Windows 7 sysprep -reseal

I've just started doing some Windows Refurbish installs so it's all new to me.
This is a one-off activity so there won't be any images, etc.

One of the requirements is for the system to present the license agreement to the ultimate user.
I see that running:
sysprep.exe -reseal
is supposed to do that.

Is that all there is to it after doing a manual install?

By doing a sysprep the system will be back to the first setup, so the user will be also asked for the license key.

maxloi:  Thanks!
What I'm trying to do is to: "prompt the end user to activate the license" but I don't think they should have to re-enter the license key.  That seems a bit much for them.

Perhaps I should also say that I want to prepare these computers in a "self-contained" fashion.  That is, all the work is done on them without a support computer.  What's the process for doing this that includes the above?
