A fatal error occurred while trying to Sysprep the machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I'm getting this error in Vista Enterprise SP2. We are using a disc that comes to us from another part of our organization, and it does appear to have been sysprepped at least once. To my knowledge it has not been sysprepped more than once. When I run sysprep /generalize I get the fatal error.

    I also get the error when I use skiprearm, which according to the KB article is a workaround for this issue. Even more strange, is that sometimes the error does not come up at all and sysprep is able to continue

    So why am I getting the fatal error and how do I get around it?
