sysprep windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a technicians computer where I have created an .iso file with AIK. The WinPE is fine. The next step is to run sysprep. The command I am using is sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown. This should work. I get an error back saying  a fatal error has occurred while trying to sysprep the machine. I am trying to pass my 70-680 exam and this is one of the excerises to do. Any ideas?

  • Hi,

     

    About the error “a fatal error has occurred while trying to sysprep the machine”, this KB may helpful to you:

    An error message occurs when you run "Sysprep /generalize" in Windows Vista or Windows 7: "A fatal error occurred while trying to Sysprep the machine"

    In addition, if you want use sysprep to run unattend file created by WAIK, you should copy unaddted file to C:\windows\system32\sysprep, then run the command:

    sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:unattend.xml

    Here’s a person who success performing sysprep Windows 7 machine you can refer:
