Yes, the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service had to be stopped with each reboot. The bad thing is the Repair install won't work, I got these errors:

So it looks like a clean install.

Sorry to hear the bad news. I've had one sysprepped rig that refused repair install, I do not know why. Need to do some creative research...

Well I guess I'll be off to the install. Thanks for the advice Kari!
six hours later....
I have a fresh w7 install on SDD with a data HDD. My install USB was corrupted somehow so I had to download a new one and make a new USB installer. All seem fine...so far.

Frodi, did you stop the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service?

The most common reason for fatal errors in relocating folders as told in this tutorial is not to read the whole tutorial .

This from very bottom of the last page of the tutorial:
Quote:
Based on my own experience, sysprep does not always like Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service (WMPNetworkSvc). Reason is unknown to me. If you get an error message when trying to run the XML script, end the service and try again.

Type this to Command Prompt to stop the mentioned service and press Enter:
Code:
net stop WMPNetworkSvc
Now run the script with sysprep command once again.

Take a screenshot or photo of that and post here. Please also explain in what phase you are when that appears.

I am really worried.
All I need is to get out of this mode. Thanks for all your help Kari, I hope you can solve this problem.

System Cleanup Action
I had successfully sysprepped and got this notice:
Enter System Out-of-Box Experience (OOBE)
Generalize

Shutdown OPtions
Reboot

I rebooted and the following (screenshot) came up.
