Change SID on Windows 2008

In previous version of Windows, we can use NewSID tool.

This tool can not use in Windows Server 2008 and later.

A new tool become candidate is "SYSPREP.EXE" included in Windows Server 2008 that we can use it by type sysprep in RUN dialog, SYSPREP Preparation Tool appear.

If you want to create a new SID, remember to CHECK the “Generalize” checkbox.

During the following reboot a new SID is automatically generated - and you will have to type in your Product/License Key, provide a new Computer Name, select an Administrator Password etc.
