Anyone any ideas?
Just spent a whole day building an image for the new windows 7 teacher laptops.
Got all the way through activated windows restarted the machine and on start up when it says 'Setting up windows for first use' i get the following error message..............
'Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation"
I have already installed windows I have all my software installed, this would be the second time this has happened. during sysprep.
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong this seems to only happen once I have ativated windows.
Anyone any ideas?
I get the same problem using sysprep. The lack of a clear definition of the problem doesnt make it an easy one to troubleshoot. I'm wondering if manufacturer branding of the OS is causing the problems.
I was recommended to look at this Sysprep a Windows 7 Machine and I am currently working through it.
This is really bugging me as this is the second time this has happened, and i am very reluctant to start again as its taking a full day to get the software installed.
Any further information wold be great.
Appears to be windows updates
did anyone get past the issue?
I've not seen this problem when building Windows 7 images. Typically like yourself I install Windows 7 SP1 VLK + security updates + all applications required, test it, then Sysprep it.
Please note you cannot Sysprep Windows 7 Professional OEM for example, only Windows 7 Professional VLK.
You can probably do it, but it will be against Microsoft's licensing policy.
Unless you are an oem in which case you will be syspreping win 7 oemYou can probably do it, but it will be against Microsoft's licensing policy.
Plus it must be a nightmare entering a different Windows key on every single workstation manually.
