Need help debugging my Sysprep.xml file please

Recommended Posts

Every time I attempt to run it, I get Windows cannot parse or find the sysprep.xml file.

I have put it in the right place.

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\Sysprep

All this sysprep.xml is needed to do is copy the profile, activate the administrator account and auto activate windows, and run an install at first login

I've found some help here:

http://blog.brianleejackson.com/sysprep-a-windows-7-machine-start-to-finish

Extract

Copy or move your sysprep.xml file to : C:\windows\system32\sysprep.

Now to run sysprep, navigate to that sysprep folder, hold SHIFT and right click and select “Open New Command Windows Here”. Next, input the following commands:

sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:sysprep.xml

I hope that will help you!

It seems you need to add some parameters, and at the line:

<SkipAutoActivation>true</SkipAutoActivation> 

Have you see the example?:

http://www.brianleejackson.com/download/7_sysprep/7_enterprise_x86_sysprep.xml

You can also find help inside "Windows AIK for Windows 7 chm".

Maybe you can install your sysprep.xml at the root?

sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:C:\sysprep.xml

Check this out, maybe you posted your code wrong, which is why we recommend you post your XML file as an attachment, but of course edit out your product key.

?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

Should be

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

:P

I got the sysprep to run by using the full path.

C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\Sysprep.exe /shutdown /oobe /generalize /unattend:"C:\Windows\system32\sysprep\sysprep32.xml"

but now it stops at the eula agreement can anyone take a look at my sysprep32.xml file and tell me what I need to add.

sysprep32.xml

Look up this code:

            <OOBE>
<HideEULAPage>true</HideEULAPage>
<NetworkLocation>Other</NetworkLocation>
<ProtectYourPC>2</ProtectYourPC>
</OOBE>
