This is my first post here and was looking for a possible solution to my question.
I have been using sysprep generalize when upgrading motherboards, or switching SATA mode operations from IDE - AHCI - RAID. This is working fine, howerver I have to be able to boot into Windows. If I have a system whose motherboard will not POST, this will not work. It is usually a hit or miss whether Windows will boot depending on the drivers installed for the SATA controller.
Which leads me to my question - Is there a way to run sysprep, or something similar to change SATA mode without access to the Windows interface?
