sorry for the delay. if the computer record exist in SCCM, you get same computer name when you are doing OSD unless you add custom task for new PC name. if the computer name is same old and new, there is going to be 1 record in SCCM because it overrides the old name with new name. Though you have new GUID id for the computer.
