    Hi Patti, nice to see new fellow Finns here

    The answer file is correct, assuming that your Windows is a 64 bit version, optical (DVD) drive is D: and the F: drive exists and is a hard disk or SSD, not a removable drive like for instance a flash drive or SD card.

    My suggestion: once again, boot to Audit Mode, run Sysprep letting it fail. When it fails, copy the file C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\Panther folder to your desktop. Right click it on desktop, select Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder.

    Attach the ZIP file in your next post. The Panther folder contains all possible Sysprep error logs to let us check them for the reason for Sysprep failing.

    Moi, todellakin mukava nähdä välillä suomalaisiakin ihan kansainvälisillä foorumeilla!

    So back to the problem: my attempt to move user folder seems to be the second to last entry on setupact.txt at least to my eyes. Hope these logs help solving the problem!

    Hi Kari, I have some updates to my post #609: “my laptop is stuck booting into the Admin ID. But at least the user files are no longer on the C-drive”...
    The laptop is no longer booting into the Admin ID. There were many folders under D: \Users in the form: Administrator.Desktop-93M44HS and TEMP.DESKTOP-93M44HS etc. I deleted all these. But I still have Administrator, Default and Default.migrated folders under there.
    I thought I would make a new system image first before going further. But I received an error message: the backup failed… service cannot be started in safe mode (0x8007043C). In msconfig, I checked that normal start up is selected and that windows back is running. But I had to go to work… Perhaps I need to check for some registry settings later. Or maybe turn safe boot on and then back off…
    Any advice would be much appreciated! My new SSD arrived and I would love to get to cloning the c-drive systems while leaving the user files on the D-drive of the old spinning hard disk. But I want to make sure that the base system is stable first. Thank you.

    Your issue is a bit more complicated, I need more time to read your posts through. I will reply as soon as possible but it will take hours rather than minutes.

    First this error:

    Code:
    Error      [0x0f0043] SYSPRP WinMain:The sysprep dialog box returned FALSE

    It is actually not an error and will always be shown in logs. It only means that the Sysprep dialog (the one at middle of the screen when you boot to Audit Mode) has not been used.

    Then: It looks that your issue is that the answer file is not found. According to the log it should be on the same drive F: where your answer file is told to relocate the Users folder. There's something wrong with that drive assignment.

    Try this:

    Although you are not relocating to drive D: as told in the warning box in Method One Step 2, read it and do as told in it to ascertain the drive ID letters will be set correctly. In below quote the warning in question, I've highlighted the part I want you to read:

    warning   Warning
    If you intend to use drive D: as the location for the relocated Users folder, please read this before proceeding!

    Windows "likes" to set the the drive ID letters like this:
    • Drive C: > The system drive where Windows will be installed
    • Drive D: > First optical drive (CD / DVD drive)
    • Drive E: > Second partition on the same disk where the C: is located, or in case that disk only has one partition, the first partition on the secondary disk

    Now when you sysprep telling it to move the Users to D: drive, after the reboot Windows might find that the D: is an optical drive and your intended drive D: is now E:, sysprep fails and you have to reinstall.

    To be sure you are able to use drive D: for the relocated Users folder you need to set the drive letters manually before the sysprep is run. In Audit Mode you can do this for instance with Disk Management by manually changing the drive letters:
    • Change the optical drive letter to something at the end of the alphabet, I use X:
    • Change the drive letter of the partition or disk you intend to use for the Users folder to D:
    • If the partition or disk you want to use already has a letter D:, change it to something else, close the Disk Management, open it again and change the letter back to D:

    See the tutorial at our sister site the Seven Forums: Drive Letter - Add, Change, or Remove in Windows - Windows 7 Help Forums

    I recommend to always set drive letters manually to override the defaults but this is especially important for those wanting to use drive D: for relocated Users folder.


    Now uninstall any possible third party AV programs (Avira, Avast, Panda etc.). Windows Defender is OK.

    When done, change the name of your answer file to unattend.xml and save it to C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep folder.

    Now sysprep with this simple command, without the /unattend:

    Code:
    sysprep /oobe /reboot

    When sysprep is run, it looks if the Sysprep folder contains a file named unattend.xml. If found, that answer file will be used. The /unattend switch followed by an answer file path and name is only required when Sysprep folder does not contain unattend.xml.

    Please try the above and report back.

    Does your Power button in Start show Update and Shut down & Update and Restart, in addition to normal Shut down and Restart?

    No - there were no visible updates pending. I had tried rebooting a few times anyway, but that did not visibly apply any updates.
