Hello,

I was able to complete the steps for the VHD.
When I try to activate Windows (on the VHD) I get this error: 0x80070017

found this link: Windows 7 installation error code: 0x80070017 - Microsoft Answers

Welcome to the windows 7 forums.

Are you creating the VHD from windows virtual PC or some other virtual program?

Also, what version of windows did you try to install on the vhd?

I have had problems with some dvd's having a small area with dirt or some crud on it and after washing the dvd and drying it with a clean t-shirt, it then worked fine.

Hello Rich,

Thanks for your reply.
I am on Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit.
I used ImageX for the VHD.

And the image was of?

Also, are you using the latest version of imagex?

You might take a look at this article
PC Deployment with ImageX - O'Reilly Media

regarding deployment of imagex vhd's. You have used sysprep also?
