+If you want to provision bare-metal or pysical computers such as
+blades. You will need xCAT setup and working. This release supports

 - Sysprep - used for preparing Windows environments before an image is captured
 - NewSID - used for preparing Windows environments before an image is captured
 - SPDrvScn - used for scanning device drivers for Windows environments before 
an
   image is captured
