I am using sysprep tool for running Windows 7 on a different Hardware. What I do is that run sysprep on a computer, select System Audit, check the Generalize check box, select Shutdown, click OK and wait for the computer to shutdown.
When the system shuts down, I remove the hard disk from my computer and plug it into another computer having different Hardware. Then I turn ON the computer and after a series of operations (including one reboot), I eventually get to the Desktop of Windows on the changed hardware computer BUT the problem is that System Preparation Tool's start up automatically. I rebooted the computer but the System Preparation Tool start up each time.
One more thing that noted was that computer gives a message at each reboot before loading Desktop that "System is now preparing your computer for first use".
Any idea how can i get a clean Desktop after performing sysprep? or is there any step I am missing?
Thanks a lot
