Hyper-V VM creation with sysprep

I have created a VM let say VM_A in Hyper-V  (and install win 2012 ) and i would like to create more VM.

I used the sysprep to the virtual hard disk which i have already created.
Then for the other VMs i need to  create the VM with out the installation of windows 2012 , copy the Virtual hard disk of VM_A to the other VM let say VM_B and rename the VM_A to VM_B.

After this then i will start the VM_B and everything will be ok or i need to do something else?

I would create a Golden Master your VM-A install the OS add updates configure how you like do not add to domain

Sysprep and shutdown

CLone copy Export it but never power up....

Every month update it Sysprep shutdown

Or Sysprep before you clone
