Sysprep usage in Windows 7

Sysprep can be used from command line (command prompt) or with graphical user interface. The GUI is very limited only allowing user to boot to Audit Mode, Welcome (OOBE) Mode and generalize the Windows setup by removing all hardware related information and drivers to allow Windows image to be moved or deployed to different hardware setup.

Sysprep GUI:

You can run it by typing %windir%\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe to Run dialog (Win + R), or by browsing to folder C:\Windows\system32\sysprep\ and double clicking Sysprep icon. Be careful, though; if you do not want to do a Welcome (OOBE) boot as if the PC and Windows were totally new, close that dialog by clicking Cancel. Once you click OK there's no way to interrupt Sysprep.

Command line usage lets you use more options. To see the usage of sysprep command, type %windir%\system32\sysprep\sysprep /? to command prompt or Run dialog:

Be sure to close all open applications including browser windows before running Sysprep! Do not launch any applications or processes while Sysprep is running.
