Hi Didier, welcome to the Seven Forums.

It looks you have sysprepped your PC in Audit Mode. When Audit Mode starts the sysprep window is always shown. Also, if you have not chosen to exit Audit Mode, PC will after reboot be back in Audit Mode and the sysprep window shown.

To exit Audit Mode and enter the normal setupmode (OOBE or Welcome mode), you need to select System Cleanup Action: Enter System Out-of-Box Experience (OOBE) and Shutdown Options: Shutdown (or reboot) and click OK:

There are only two possibilities for SysPrep window to appear by itself when you boot your PC. First, the computer is booted in Audit Mode, in which case you exit Audit Mode as I told in my first post.

Second alternative is that SysPrep is set to to start automatically. I can not understand why because it is not a program you would use regularly. Anyway, check Startup folders both for your user account and for all users and remove SysPrep shortcut if it is present in either one.

Your personal Startup folder is here:
C:\Users\Your_Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
Here are the shortcuts for programs set to start automatically when you boot to Windows desktop using your user account. Remove Sysprep shortcut if found here.

Startup folder for all users is:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
Also here remove Sysprep shortcut if found.

Notice that both AppData and ProgramData folders are hidden by default.

If you have exited the Audit Mode as I told you in my previous post, and if you have removed the possible Sysprep shortcut from both locations described above, Sysprep will not open after your next boot. That's 100% sure!

Kari,

I made a mistake.
in my unattend.xml I had in pass 7 , windows deployment the field reseal and the mode was "audit".
--> each reboot I had the message box with sysprep.
I removed this field and all works fine.
THANKS A LOTS FOR YOUR ANSWERS
