Can you customize a Windows 7 clone if using the Linux vCenter appliance?  It seems like all of the articles I research talk about downloading MS Sysprep into a Windows vCenter instance.  Am I missing something here?  

Thanks!

I found this article.  It looks like I don't need sysprep for Windows 7: http://vmwire.com/2012/03/14/adding-sysprep-packages-to-the-vmware-vcenter-server-virtual-appliance/

Later operating systems now include Sysprep in the OS!

You only need to download and populate the Sysprep folders for earlier OS.

in this folder!

C:\Windows\system32\sysprep
