Sysprep Fails After Deployment With: Windows could not finish configuring the system....

Question

After deploying my Windows 7/2008 syspreped image to a machine I get this error: Windows could not finish configuring the system....

 

Answer

The 2 possible fixes to this are: 

1) Disable "Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service" - Reboot machine after disabling and re-run imaging process. 

2) Microsoft have identified an issue with Windows 7/2008 (x86/AMD64) that can give this error, apply the hotfix from this MS KB article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/981542 and then retry the imaging operation.
