sysprep error

I am trying to capture a windows vista business x86 image using image x
because I have spent a month trying to use bdd without successfully
installing office 2007. I install the operating system using bdd and wds
then add office 2007, adobe reader, adobe flash, adobe shockwave, java,
quicktime, real player and iespell. I join computer to the domain and create
a domain profile in the local administrators group. I copy the customized
administrator profile to the default profile. I unjoin computer from domain
and log back in as administrator. From command prompt I try to run sysprep
and get this: There was an error while trying to initialize the sysprep log.
Do I need to boot from pex86iso to run sysprep? Seems like I tried this
before and still got the sysprep log error. Your help in this matter would
be GREATLY appreciated as ever since attending mms2007, I thought it would be
a piece of cake.

Re: sysprep error

Hi Lisa,

I can only presume that you are having problems due to the "Domain profile"
you are creating. Have you tried to sysprep the machine without this step?
Did it work? Also, I am not sure it is such a good thing to join a domain,
even if you remove it later, before you sysprep it. As far as I know, this
is an unsupported method and it will lead to many other less obvious
problems.

The likely cause of you problem is that the sysprep process is trying to
access a file that has been secured by either joining the domain or copying
of the profile. You may want to compare the file and folder permissions
before and after and if possible, run the Filemon to see where the access
denied is happening.Or you could use object access auditing to see.

Re: sysprep error

Do you need to use the /flag switch with XP? I assumed that was only for
Vista.
