In generally, for every VM Image you need to use Sysprep to remove some
unique information like computername, SID oder PID.
With VMM 2008 you have 2 option.
1. You can use a prepared VHD by yourself as a base for a template. Which of
course should syspreped.
2. You can use VMM to create a template from a existing machine. If you
select a VM and hit "New Template", these VM will be syspreped and store in
the library as a template.
I know that in the technet library are some articles about VMM and the
deployment options of the VM.
