Sysprep after each automatic restore

*** Hopeleonie ***

We have given an order to a small Client OEM System Builder to create 25 Clients with the same Image. They are new and have less experience.
I knew it is possible to create such an Image for Windows 7 as I worked for an OEM System Builder. Is it still possible to do this with a Windows 10 Build 1809 OEM? What we need is just to get a new SID and change the Computer name after each restore.

Thanks for helping me

Same as before you can setup your image then perform sysprep prior to saving / deploying the image.

Agreed you don't sysprep *after* restoring an image. You sysprep the image BEFORE deploying/restoring. The unique SID happens when the machine runs the specialize phase which occurs when a sysprepped) generalized) image is first started. It isn't sysprep itself that sets the SID.
