Installation
The elementary OS Installer treats every installation as an OEM installation; step through it to install the OS, then shut down and the device is ready to be shipped to a customer. To create a custom image, install the OS, configure the system with an administrator account, delete that account, then create an image of the disk. In both cases, Initial Setup will run on the customer's first boot and create their user account.

System Settings
System Settings offers several advantages to OEMs shipping elementary OS. From its pluggable architecture to easily-provided branding, System Settings was designed with OEMs in mind.
Plugs
System Settings (codenamed <a href="https://github.com/elementary/switchboard" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Switchboard</a>) uses a concept of “Plugs” to provide pluggable settings for various hardware and software concerns. For example, <a href="https://github.com/elementary/switchboard-plug-mouse-touchpad/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Mouse & Touchpad settings</a> are provided by a plug.
Switchboard
OEMs are able to develop and ship custom plugs if there is special or unique hardware in the machine that would require configuration outside of what is available by default in elementary OS; for example, special sensors or input methods that are not present in most hardware and therefor not implemented by default. Of course if this configuration could be relevant to a broader set of users, contributing upstream to the <a href="https://github.com/elementary?q=switchboard-plug" target="_blank" rel="noopener">existing plugs</a> is heavily encouraged.
Documentation
OEM Info in About
The <a href="https://github.com/elementary/switchboard-plug-about/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">About</a> plug displays system information to the user and provides several system-wide actions, such as restoring settings, reporting issues, and getting help. In addition to software information (like the OS version), it also provides a space for hardware information. By default, this is filled in with a generic image and the system’s hostname. However, OEMs can provide custom branded data for this section.
Switchboard About
By providing an <code>oem.conf</code> file, OEMs can fill in the manufacturer name, product name, model number, and manufacturer URL. An image can also be provided which replaces the generic hardware icon.
