Won't sysprep if Windows updates are pending

Did you know that Windows 7 won't Sysprep if Window's updates are pending?  Need to reboot first.

Sysprep command line switches

When using sysprep in Windows 7 with an unattend file, be careful with using /oobe or /audit.  If you have an audit section in unattend.xml and call the following it won't process anything in audit.

sysprep.exe /generalize /quiet /oobe /unattend:c:\windows\system32\sysprep\unattend.xml /reboot

Use this instead

sysprep.exe /generalize /quiet /audit /unattend:c:\windows\system32\sysprep\unattendETS.xml

Firefox plugin check

Now this is a useful utility.  In most cases, sends you right to the link.  Too bad there isn't one for IE.
