@ Jpolika: do not put the answer file on C:, put it on another drive. If still not working post the answer file as you have it here.
About that ThreatSignal's issue which VistaKing already solved:
It was the extra space. Removing it would have CD'd C: drive to correct folder. However, even if you had fixed it the next command (sysprep) had not worked for you were on the wrong drive, the D: drive.
For future readers sake I will try to explain this: CD
is a command used to change the current working folder, acronym coming from words Change Directory
(Directory = how we called Folder back in the old days...). If the CD command is given with preceding drive letter for example CD C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep
it changes the working folder on said drive (C: in this example) but does not go there if the command is given when you are currently on another drive. You were on drive D: so you had stayed there even after succesful CD on C: drive.
When the CD command is given as VistaKing told without preceding drive letter as CD \Windows\System32\Sysprep
, the CD command searches the current D: drive for that folder path and when not found, gives an error message.
Correct procedure for you had been first to change current drive by typing C:
and pressing Enter
, thereafter CD
command on C:. Or vice versa, change the working folder on C: and then jump there with C: + Enter:
You could also have given the command to open sysprep directly just writing the path and command name and pressing Enter. This way it is the same in which drive you currently are, command is run anyway:
