    I am building a Vista Enteprise image and am using sysprep with an
    unattend.xml file. I have a couple of tweaks that I would like to add to
    this process but not sure if they are possible or where to look:

    1) In Windows XP, you were able to see the various screens when minisetup
    run. Is there anyway to do this Vista? Right now, all I get is the default
    wallpaper and the busy circle icon. Sysprep does complete successfully, I
    would just like to see what its doing, while its doing it.

    2) Is there anyway to turn off the "Please wait while windows checks your
    computer's performance?" (Windows System Assessment Tool)? All my machine
    types are the same, i already know what the rating is going to be, and this
    just seems to add time to the process. Anyway to prevent this from running
    during sysprep?

    3) I'm using the skipuseroobe option, but I still have to create a user.
    Is there anything else I can look at to stop this from happening?

    1) No, I don't believe there is a way to change this

    2) I am still trying to find a way to disable this. If anyone ha
    answer to this, please post it

    3) There is no way to NOT create a user during sysprep. What I did wa
    use the WAIK to create a sysprep.xml file that automatically creates
    user. I set the user to Administrator since I wanted that account to b
    re-enabled anyway. I recommend you do the same, or create a dummy use
    and run a command to delete it later

    In my opinion Vista sysprep seems to be geared towards OEMs selling PC
    to the home user, and not for the enterprise. Everything we used to d
    with XP sysprep has changed with Vista
