Repair install as described in this tutorial is considered as an in-place upgrade, so if you have repaired Windows by booting with install media and re-installed on top of existing system keeping your apps and files, you can no longer sysprep.

I guess there is no way around it.

Worked for me, except got stuck [Solved]

Followed instructions, but got stuck at a prompt: "Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation." Was not able to get passed this until I saw this post. This worked for me.

Trying to transfer HD to new MB but getting dreaded "a fatal error occurred while trying to sysprep the machine"

Tried stopping wMPnetworksvc but that doesn't do it, googled a bit and ended up fiddling with cleanup state and geleralization state values in system registry but that did nought.

These are the error logs

2013-04-17 19:55:47, Error [0x0f0085] SYSPRP LaunchDll:Could not load DLL C:\Windows\SysWOW64\iesysprep.dll[gle=0x000000c1]
2013-04-17 19:55:47, Error [0x0f0070] SYSPRP RunExternalDlls:An error occurred while running registry sysprep DLLs, halting sysprep execution. dwRet = 193[gle=0x000000c1]
2013-04-17 19:55:47, Error [0x0f00a8] SYSPRP WinMain:Hit failure while processing sysprep cleanup providers; hr = 0x800700c1[gle=0x000000c1]

Can anyone help please

"Cannot edit the reg value"

Be gentle I am a noob
put psexec.exe in folder c:\windows\system32
psexec can be found on http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s...rnals/bb897553
Now open an elevated command prompt Elevated Command Prompt

Now type:
Code:
psexec -i -s regedit
Now regedit opens? It runs as user system. Can you edit the values now?
New 3 values must be C:\Windows\System32\iesysprep.dll,Sysprep_Cleanup_IE

All sorted now thanks. I just changed the permission on each line to allow administrator full control of reg entries.

Sysprep has finally run after 2 hours of messing about.

All shut down and ready for new z77 board.

Thanks again. What a great forum

Just thought I would chime in.
I decided to give this a shot even tough I have an upgraded version, worst that would happen is that I lose time.
After I disabled WMP networking it worked flawlessly. I moved my hdd into a brand new computer and It booted up fine.
