Replying to self... (it does appear like you are on the other side of the world and probably in bed)...

I turned it back on and it booted OK. Will try sysprep again with admin priv in cmd prompt.

Last thing that happened is sysperep seemed to end prematurly when I closed the error window. Then turned PC off. Now its back on again and desktop seems normal.

No error this time. It ran for a couple of minutes, went black and came back up with different screen resolution then tuned off. I think it worked.

I'll tear down the PC now and build it back with new MB and CPU. Thanks for being there! Now get some sleep!
