Install Windows 7 with no user, but drivers installed

How can I install Windows 7 with all of the drivers but with no users on the drive. Sort of like when you buy a pre-built machine and it asks you the first time you boot it up for you to create a user but it has all of the drivers installed (and bloatware, but I don't want to install bloatware).

I want to sell my old machine since I've upgraded which is why I want to do this.

    yes, sort of. keep in mind windows 7 can only be syspreped 3 times, per key.
    what you do is put the build together, load os do all the updates install the drivers yada yada yada. once its all done and perfect, run the sysprep application, choosing the oobe (out-of-box experience).
