I'm having a problem installing/setting up an image.
Background: I've created a Windows 7 Enterprise image (i.e. installed OS, installed applications, configured settings, etc.). Then I sysprepped it and captured/applied it with imagex (onto a computer with identical hardware as the original). When I boot up the new machine, windows starts and runs setup. After the machine displays "Setup is starting services" I get an error that says "Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, restart the computer." Restarting the machine does no good.
Diagnoses and Troubleshooting:
These are the steps that I've tried so far:
1) Disabled Windows Media Player Network Sharing service
2) Set skip rearm in answer file
3) Looked for registry key problems:
tracerpt setup.etl -o logfile.csv
(c0000022): Failed to open child key: [Symantec.Norton.Antivirus.IEContextMenu]error
- Deleted key
- (Recreated key when solution didn't work)
4) Set the Registry Size Limit to "unlimited":
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Controlwith Type: REG_DWORD and value: 0xffffffff (4294967295)
- Ran WinRE startup repair
That's as much as I could figure out. There are supposed to be hotfixes related to KB articles 981542 and 977392, but according to Microsoft, they are already included in Service Pack 1, which is a part of the image.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I could get setup to complete?
