    This is a really useful article, but . . .

    When I try to use sysprep on my Win7 machine I get the error below. I disabled WMPNetworkSvc as suggested in the writeup. I confess I haven't read all 500 posts in this thread but I've googled the web and used the three or four suggestions I found for fixing this problem, but none worked. I suggest someone add a list of known fixes for this problem to the main article in the area where disabling WMPNetworkSvc was suggested
    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.

    Most likely a IE10 problem!
    Sysprep Fatal Error With IE 10 (FIX) | System Administration

    Easy to fix, but you have to do it as user SYSTEM. Can be be done by doing
    1. start an elevated command pormpt
    2. run: psexec -i -s regedit (this runs regedit as user system, otherwise you cannot modify the values mentioned in url above)
    3. modify the 3 values (replace syswow64 by system32). Read carefully!! there's more to change
    4. close the command prompt. Now try to sysprep. I attach psexec.exe
    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\Sysprep\Cleanup
    Locate: Value Name {EC9FE15D-99DD-4FB9-90D5-5B56E42A0F80} Value Data C:\Windows\SysWOW64\iesysprep.dll,Sysprep_Cleanup_IE
    Replace the value with: C:\Windows\System32\iesysprep.dll,Sysprep_Cleanup_IE
    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\Sysprep\Generalize
    Locate: Value Name {EC9FE15D-99DD-4FB9-90D5-CE53C91AB9A1} Value Data C:\Windows\SysWOW64\iesysprep.dll,Sysprep_Generalize_IE
    Replace the value with: C:\Windows\System32\iesysprep.dll,Sysprep_Cleanup_IE
    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\Sysprep\Specialize
    Locate: Value Name {EC9FE15D-99DD-4FB9-90D5-676C338DC1DA} Value Data C:\Windows\SysWOW64\iesysprep.dll,Sysprep_Cleanup_IE
    Replace the value with: C:\Windows\System32\iesysprep.dll,Sysprep_Cleanup_IE

    The most typical reason for your error message is that the Windows is upgraded. An upgraded Windows cannot be sysprepped.
    Mine was a fresh install, not an upgrade.

    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.
    I have never done a repair install on my current instance of Win7

    Did you already do #490 ? Or is it to difficult? Post registry key again afterwards. And try to sysprep after changing the 3 values

    I understand now. I had to do that to run sysprep.

    Assuming this works when sysprep works it takes off and immediately does the deed -- is that correct? If so, I will want to do a backup before trying again.

    Yes if you sysprep... sysprep does its job when pressing OK. Backup is always a good thing to do.

    I've done the registry changes, so it may be a while before I see you again. I can't thank you enough for all your help.
