If you are cloning via sysprep, add the following to your sysprep.inf 

command1="c:\drivers\instloop.exe -i"

and place the instloop.exe and afsloopback.dll files from 
http://web.mit.edu/~jaltman/Public/OpenAFS/Support in c:\drivers

This will correctly reinstall the loopback adapter after cloning.  The 
sysprep process removes the loopback adapter.  There were some very 
weird problems with the openafs service needing to be disabled for 
cloning, but I'm pretty sure that these have been fixed thanks to the 
hard work of Mr. Altman.
