Windows 7: SysPrep Installation Errors

SysPrep Installation Errors

Hi all,

I've been trying to get my old computer up and running again. I went through the system recovery disks, and just got my Windows 7 Home Premium x64 disk. I've been going through the setup process, and ended up getting stuck at a certain point.

When the "System Preparation Tool 3.14" menu comes up, I select "Enter System Out-Of-Box Experience (OOBE)" and check the "Generalize" option. After I press OK, it will run for a few seconds and then a menu pops up saying, "A fatal error occurred while trying to sysprep the machine."

I tried to find a solution online before coming here, but haven't had much luck. All of the user accounts I had are gone (which I'm sure is normal), and I'm using an account called Administrator.

Here are the errors that I keep getting:

2014-03-15 15:16:22, Error [windeploy.exe] Setup.exe failed, returning exit code [0x1f]
2014-03-15 15:16:22, Error [windeploy.exe] Failure occured during online installation. Online installation cannot complete at this time.; hr = 0x80004005

There are about 14 copies of that in the file. This is the first time I've had to do this. What am I doing wrong? Any help will be appreciated.
