says "configuring devices" after sysprep /generalize

I created a laptop image with Windows 10 and used sysprep /generalize to prep it.  Everything went well, so this question might get trivial.  

After installing the OS and syspreping it I made an image with clonezilla.  My goal is always to image it before it boots the first time to have a clean image.  Well that didn't happen because someone distracted me during bootup and I did not boot to clonezilla it went into the post sysprep new setup menu.  During this time it was "configuring devices" for about 10 minutes then went to the new user setup menus.  I shut it down immediately after using the command prompt before doing that setup.  

My questions are...
1. what exactly is happening during "configuring devices"?   If it is assigning a new SID during that time I guess I need to sysprep again or make a new image.  
2. When exactly does the SID get assigned?  
3. Are any cons to syspreping an OS twice?
