Casper Imaging SID Change

New Contributor II

Hello all!

We are currently using Casper Imaging to get a set of new iMacs (Dual Boot with BootCampW7) prepped for the new school year and came across an issue where SysPrep seems to kill the USB driver for the new iMacs as the keyboard will not get power and the mouse will not move unless you don't run SysPrep. Our problem with that is that we need to do a SID change. Is there a solution anyone can recommend or an option in Casper somewhere to do so during the imaging process?

Thanks in advance!

For out last round of 650 dual-boot Macbook's I just used the following in the generalize pass of my answer file and haven't had any driver issues:

<component name="Microsoft-Windows-PnpSysprep" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="" xmlns:xsi="">

The only thing I noticed with the <DoNotCleanUpNonPresentDevices> was that it left the network adapter information from the original machine in place, but it wasn't too big of a deal for us.

You may be able to get away with just using the PersistAllDeviceInstalls but we didn't test that so YMMV.
