    Install your OS on a machine, install your apps, drivers, configure your settings, etc. Sysprep the machine, and power off. Then boot from your PE CD (so that sysprep does not run) After PE boots, capture your image using IMAGEX from the WAIK. here is the syntax.

    Code:
    imagex /COMPRESS fast /CAPTURE D: F:\Custom_Windows7_Sysprep.wim "Custom_Image_Name_Here"
