    Sysprep copyprofile fails on creators update


    Im having an issue ONCE AGAIN with getting the copyprofile feature to work with the latest creators update. I did a clean install of windows 10 1703 pro x64. I boot into audit mode and installed my programs and applications and did all of Windows updates. From there I used the most recent adk of Windows 10 and created an unattend.xml file and saved it to my H Drive. I stopped the user tile service and then from the admin command propmpt i typed in sysprep.exe /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:H:\Unattend.xml sysprep seem to run normal and everything went fine it shut down perfectly but when I restarted and after it found my devices and it began to setup your user Locale settings (keyboard layout, time zone etc.) And I clicked on next it gave me an error with a :-( saying why did my PC restart? A continuously reboots to the screen and I'm not exactly sure why I have racked my brain through TechNet and on here and I have yet to find a solution. Kari can you help me or anyone? Thanks so much

    It's most probably because of you stopping a Windows service before sysprepping. Using group policies is OK, stopping services not very kosher, it might lead to various issues.

    Please post your answer file here placing it in CODE tags ([CODE]Your answer file here[/CODE]), to see if there are any obvious errors. Do not forget to replace any personal information, product keys and such in answer file with bunch of Xs and Ys before posting it!

    That is unreadable, shown as one single line.

    Please open your answer file in Notepad, press CTRL + A to select all text. Start a new post here, type [CODE] and press CTRL + V to paste the text copied from Notepad.

    Go to end of the post, first empty line after the pasted text, and type [/CODE], post it.

    A quick look shows that your answer file is not valid.
    • Lines 2 through 4 start with a hyphen. That is not correct, hyphens must be removed
    • Line 4 is missing the name of the component (Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup). This is required information, can't be left out
    • Line 4 is missing processor architecture information, in your case amd64. This is required information, can't be left out

    Correct line 4 should be as follows:
    Code:
    <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

    Kari I just realized something that might be causing an issue. in my group policies I clicked on block Microsoft accounts. Would that have anything to do with sysprep failing
