Weird Sysprep issue,urgent help.

23 posts in this topic

I built it straight from the iso mount so burn speed is not the issue.

The logs I zip are from

C:\Windows\system32\Sysprep\Panther

I will check C:\Windows\Panther\UnattendGC next time it occurs.

The Sysprep crashed happened again.

This time I will upload the logs from C:\Windows\Panther\UnattendGC thanks for the tip. It seems that sysprep is crashing on the copy profile.

I have looked for any extra profiles in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\ProfileList there are none

also no extra users in computer management-->Local Users and Groups

There is only Administrator and Guest.

Some things that bother me but I don't know why you say it work on 30 of 40

It seem that you should have used CopyProfile on original image.

To copy the Administrator profile I think you need to AutoLogon with Admin or his profile folder don't exist.

CopyProfile needs to be done in the sysprep that is laying the image down onto new hardware. You can't, and shouldn't, try to do it during capture - only deploy. Also, you do not need to autologon, because the profile will exist if you logged on as admin in the original image and made the requisite modifications to have required CopyProfile in the first place.

As to the error, it at least tells us something - that error code means "ERROR_PARTIAL_COPY", which is stating that it is having an issue either reading or writing some of what it is attempting to write from memory to disk. I don't know why, but either there's an issue with the profile in the captured image (not totally impossible), or there could be hardware issues with the destination machines.

Thanks Cluberti,

It works on 98% of the hardware I have thrown the image at. It seems to dislike the Dell Optiplex 755, 760, and 780 Models. On a lab of 40 pc's I get maybe 5 with the sysprep crash. All machines have been brought up to the latest BIOS. Hopefully I'll figure it out.

If you do, let us know. Not all Dell machines, even those of the same model run, are necessarily equal. You may need to engage Dell, ultimately, to figure out what's different with the machines that aren't working compared to the ones that do.

As always I thank everyone on the board and this site for all your help. You have helped me learn the stuff I needed to quickly and made me realize when I was going off course. I made a donation a few weeks ago as thanks for all you've done for me.

Hi all, just to rule out hardware error, I've syspreped a machine after I snapshot the it reboot and I got that same error message. So for my case I can ruled out hardware difference.
