Getting the message after Sysprep stating "Sysprep Fails After Deployment With: Windows could not finish configuring the system...." This is a new out-of-box Lenovo T530 laptop, it came pre-loaded with Windows 7 Pro. I pulled laptop from box and inserted our Windows 7 Pro SP 1 disk and installed our copy. I then configured all settings and applications under "audit mode", created an "Unattend.xml" file using the WSIM, and copied that file into the Sysprep folder and ran "Sysprep /shutdown /oobe /generalize /unattend:unattend.xml" The error message appears after I image drive using Ghost GSS 18.104.22.1686. (I'm assuming the error would appear after boot-up regardless of imaging the machine) I have read numerous articles regarding this error and have also disabled the "Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service" as suggested by many. I'm also assuming that the "Hotfix" for this issue does not apply since I am installing SP1. I am able to boot into the machine after attempting to boot into "safe mode" first (as suggested by many users), however once in, it looks as if the XML file is completely ignored. Could it be related to the SSD drive in these laptops?
