Windows 7: Sysprep fails in audit mode after joining domain

Sysprep fails in audit mode after joining domain

Hey Guys,

My problem is as follows:

Using VMware Workstation, I've got my Window 7 image right as I would like it. The one step I have left is to add two sec groups to the Local Admin group. In the past while using a physical box, I've joined the PC to the domain, added the groups, then ran sysprep, with my unattend file, and all is well.

Well I am doing it in a VM, and after I join it to the domain, and restart the PC starts fine. If I restart again, Windows errors out, and displays the "cannot finish the setup" message.

What could be causing this?
