Sysprep 2.0 & XP SP2 - Failed to Update Registry


K

Kenny

I have a brand new Dell Optiplex GX520 (SATA Drives, if that matters) this
is the first time I'm running sysprep with SP2. Everytime I run it I just
"unable to update registry when the machine comes back up.
I have tried Sysprep 1.0 with my standard answer file, and sysprep 2.0 with
a new answer file I generated (shown below). On someone elses advice I also
tried running sysprep with no answer file but it ended in the same result.

I have searched the internet and this forum and haven't found anything that
seems to pertinent to my problem. anyone have any ideas?

Thanks, Kenny

Give this a try: (it can also be a drive permission issue but that is another
thing). Also, are you using Ghost, PE or what?

Same result on that one I'm afraid :(

What permissions should I be looking at? On my C:\sysprep folder
Administrators, Users, and SYSTEM have full control. I have also verified
that the read only attribute is off on the folder and all of it's contents.

What other security could effect this?

To tell you the truth I built this from scratch so it shoul dhave the
default security, I granted additional permissions in places but I did not
revoke permissions anywhere. However I'm willing to try anything I'm flying
out Monday to dpeloy these machines.

Thanks, Kenny

Here what I pulled out of some logs:

1st Error-
D:\XPSPRTM\base\NTsetup\syssetup\syssetup.c,1514,... failed. Error = 5


I'm not even sure if the next two are errors depends one whether 1 or 0
means success I guess.

2nd Error-
RUNONCE -r returned exit code 1

3rd Error-
SetUpVirtualMemory: Exit (1)

Hello Kenny,
Is this the correct error message in this article?
818171 "An Error Has Been Encountered That Prevents Setup from Continuing"
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=818171

Also look at this article that talks about possible issues with the
[SysprepMassStorage] section.
249690 "An error occurred while trying to update your registry" message
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=249690

Thanks,
