NEWSID breaks Windows Server 2008 R2

NEWSID and Windows Server 2008 R2 do not play nicely together.

Fortunately, I found out using VMs hence simply just restored the hard drive.

The solution is to use Sysprep...
  1. Navigate to \Windows\System32\Sysprep
  2. Run Sysprep.exe
  3. Use the 'Generalize' tick bo.
  4. When you restart, you'll get the install prompts for country, language etc...
