A problem must have occurred during the image capture. Sysprep.exe should have
run as the last step before the computer was shut down and the image files
saved. When the image is booted, you should see a Windows setup screen. This
is the result of running sysprep.exe before the image was capture.
To diagnose, look at C:\Windows\setupapi.log. If this file doesn't exist or
doesn't contain any info on the date the image was captured then sysprep.exe
Check if the following exist in the image (they should):
I would make sure sysprep.exe exists on your management node as described in the
documentation and try to capture the image again. If sysprep still isn't
running, please send the log output from the image capture.

I never notice the sysprep run, the workstation also is not renaming itself.
This is copied down during the base image capture correct? Is there anything I
can look at to diagnose?

The steps on the following page should be all that is necessary:
Are you having trouble with Sysprep?
Just FYI - the code in the next release will make the Sysprep and
management node configuration a little simpler. The requirement for the
spdrvscn.exe utility has been removed and you will no longer need to
configure the sysprep.inf file. The code scans all of the drivers which
have been saved to the Drivers directories on the management node,
dynamically generates the sysprep.inf file, and sets the DevicePath
registry key (this is what spdrvscn.exe does).

Aside from the sysprep files that are copied to the mgmt server and
editing the sysprep.inf, what else is required for sysprep to function?
