  1. Updated our image VM to latest Windows 10 build 1903. When I go to image a laptop I get a fatal sysprep error. Any ideas what could be causing this issue?
  2. Today I started attempting to draft my first Windows 10 Creator's Update image. I downloaded the ISO from Microsoft. I usually create my VM in Hyper-V 1st generation. I decided to start as simple as possible with my image just to make sure I could deploy the literal basic install of the new version of Windows 10. So I left the VM disconnected from any network and simply installed Windows 10 Creator's Update successfully. Everything was fine. I then booted my VM to the SmartDeploy .ISO capture/deploy environment and successfully captured the .WIM to a network drive. After the .WIM was captured I stayed in the SmartDeploy .ISO capture/deploy environment and began to deploy the image I had just captured from the VM to the VM. The deployment finishes and the VM restarts to begin Sysprep but fails with the message I am attaching as an image to this post. (I will also attach the log the Sysprep error message refers to) After closing that message the VM restarts into Windows and I can see the login screen- then suddenly the screen just goes black and stays that way indefinitely. I can CTRL+ALT+DEL and that functions, but basically Windows is just broken and not going to work for real. TLDR has anyone else tried to make a Windows 10 Creator's Update image yet? I would love any tips to make this work. OR is there something actually happening here to prevent me from making an image of the new update? setupact.log
  3. I am getting the following error on a batch of 20 or so HP 8300 workstations when re-imaging them with Windows 10. One of my engineers created the image using SmartDeploy and incorporated the Platform Packs.. I've used my Image Disks for various flavors of HP systems in our environment (8000, 8200's, 8300's) with no major issues (total of about 500 machines) I had the installer verify the BIOS / Firmware levels and they appear to be the same. I'm going to have of the failed ones Fed-ex'ed back to me... Since SysPrep is failing our default admin acct hasn't been created and I can't login as administrator since the account is disabled (I can get around this with special boot disks) I'm wondering if a BIOS setting or a Fiber NIC card at this particular location would be causing this error. Anyone else encounter this or have any ideas? Thanks, Jeff
  4. When deploying an image Windows 7 x86 with productivity software installed that I created and captured from VMWare Workstation 9 VM to a VMWare Workstation 9 VM I get most of the way through the deployment when System Preperation Tool 3.14 tells me that a fatal error has occured while trying to sysprep the machine. Afatal error occured while trying to sysprep the machine. I assumed that I had reached my limit of syspreps on the machine but when I booted the VM containing the golden image back up it seems that it has never been sysprepped(the registrykeys associated with sysprep were in default). I am confused. Anyone else run into this issue?
