Microsoft has updated the guidance on disk duplication and image deployment for all supported versions of Windows including Win8 and WS2012.

There is an interesting note on cloning Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.  The following problems might happen:

  • Tile, badge, and toast notifications do not update even though Internet connectivity is available.
  • Apps that rely on RAW notification do not work as expected. For example, you notice significantly reduced functionality in Mail, Calendar, and Messaging.
  • It takes a long time to synchronize changes for roaming and family safety settings.

Either of these fixes will solve the problem:

  • Configure the computers by using the Sysprep /generalize command, and then deploy the image.
  • Replace the existing user account with a new account. The device identifier is stored as part of the user profile. Each new NTUser account that is added to a computer will receive a new identifier.
