    SYSPREP issues


    Hi,

    I am wondering if anyone is experiencing the same issues i am, after (apparently successfully) SYSPREPping a Windows 10 (clean) installation, and restarting it?

    BTW: i have used a very simple autoanswer file:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
    <settings pass="specialize">
    <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    <CopyProfile>true</CopyProfile>
    </component>
    </settings>
    </unattend>


    I manage to find an event just before it reboot:

    The process C:\Windows\system32\winlogon.exe (WIN-7QI8VNFK7GM) has initiated the restart of computer WIN-4EO069BGM83 on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: Operating System: Upgrade (Planned)
    Reason Code: 0x80020003
    Shutdown Type: restart

    I am wondering why it's thinking it is an UPGRADE?

    Thanx for any help provided with this probem.

    All my tests with 10041 Sysprep have failed if CopyProfile is set to True. Did you finally manage to get it working?

    What is the problem? Is this an Error, a warning, informational?

    When you shut down Windows, there is an option of specifying a "reason code". In server versions of Windows, you are required to give this reason when shutting down. In desktop versions this reason is optional... However, Sysprep, when it schedules the shutdown simply gives the reason code of "OS upgrade". It's just how it was programmed.

    This is not a problem, so unless you have some other issue you're getting concerned about something that is normal.

    I am not sure if this is the case, but in my tests the CopyProfile=True setting in answer file cases exactly the behavior OP tells about: After Sysprep, Windows reboots to OOBE. These three dialogs will then be shown, one after the other:

    After this, Windows tells Checking for connection, then suddenly reboots and the above told cycle starts from beginning, the blue background dialog asking about country and language.

    It's an endless reboot loop. Sysprepping with an answer file without the CopyProfile tags completes the OOBE boot normally and finally enters the desktop.

    Hi Kari,

    Thanx your reply, and for acknowledging this issues. Also much appreciated that you added some more details - like the screenshots, this exactly the same thing i am experiencing!

    Mystere thank you also for your explanation, but i already knew that.

    Kari i will try a SYSPREP without the answer file (so no copyprofile) and await the result, I'll be back shortly to report my findings!

    Cheers

    Sysprep works with some workarounds in 10041, I have booted my test rig at least 50 times to Audit Mode and sysprepped with various answer files since Wednesday when 10041 was released and I created the ISO for clean install.

    Everything else seems to be working, whatever settings I set in answer files, it's just this Copyprofile which does not work whatever I try.
