Type Sysprep in C:\Windows\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe

and then select Sysprep and Shutdown

and your done.

or, create a Customization Specification, and select Generate new SID, and it will do it as part of the CLONE.

To run sysprep with the standard GUI options, but also the /mode:vm switch, type sysprep.exe /oobe /generalize /shutdown /mode:vm and press Enter.
