Deploy Anywehere causes sysprep to hang in AUDIT mode, doesn't get to OOBE
During our imaging process, we create our own tokenized sysprep files. They work correclty on all models that do not require deploy anywhere and on some that do. On select models that use deploy anywhere sysprep fails with the "You must restart your computer to apply these changes" and "Windows could not complete the installation. To install windows on this computer, restart the installation" messages below.
This issue is detailed here and, at one point had a fix: http://www.symantec.com/connect/forums/deploy-anywhere-causes-sysprepped-image-fail-unable-process-unattend-answer-file. I have obtained the most recent version of the deploy anywhere executables from support and am still having the issue.
After digging through the sysprep logs, I discovered that deployAnywhere is booting the system to audit mode and that it fails to process anything after the audit mode tasks. If I don't use deploy anywhere and use the same custom unattend.xml file, sysprep completes as expected.
Has anyone else encountered this?
