    On your Windows 7 reference PC, open the registry editor.  Navigate to HKLM\system\setup.  Look for a multi-string value called "CloneTag".  I'm guessing it's not there.

    Add a new multi-string value, name it "CloneTag".  The actual value is not important.  I'm not sure if case on the name is important, so I mimicked what the error suggested.

    Export the HKLM\system\setup key and save to a .reg file.

    Edit the .reg file, and remove all other entries except for the CloneTag value.

    Run the cscript to launch the Task Sequence selector.  Select your Sysprep and Capture Task Sequence.  Enter your credentials, and go.

    When it gets to the part where it is executing sysprep, run your .reg file to quickly import the CloneTag multi-string value.  If you see it proceed to PE, then you should be in the clear.

  • CloneTag is a check used by LTISysPrep.wsf to verify that sysprep actually passed.
    If you are not getting CloneTag in your registry, then Sysprep failed. Adding a clonetag entry to the registry simply ignores the underlying problem, and I do *NOT* encourage the work around hack above.

    Instead, check the sysprep (panther) logs and find out why Sysprep failed.
