I suggest someone add a list of known fixes for this problem to the main article in the area where disabling WMPNetworkSvc was suggested
Can be anything. Did you check eventlog for errors?

The most typical reason for your error message is that the Windows is upgraded. An upgraded Windows cannot be sysprepped.

This means that if you have for instance in-place upgraded Vista to Seven, or using Anytime Upgrade upgraded for instance a Home Premium to Ultimate, you cannot sysprep. Notice that a repair install is also an upgrade install, so if you have ever done a repair install (= in-place upgrade to same edition), you cannot sysprep.
