Windows 10 Sysprep - Stuck in Restart Loop?
- FOG Version: 1.3.4 Revision 6064
- OS: Ubuntu 14.04
- Service Version:
- OS: Windows 10 64-Bit
I’m having a weird issue when I sysprep a Windows 10 64-bit system - it seems to get stuck in a reboot loop. The Dell logo will appear, the white spinning circle will show for a few seconds, and then all will go black and the laptop I’m working on will reboot.
I suspect it could be my unattend.xml file and that there’s something wrong with it. 0_1486047107562_unattendTest.xml
You can see I’m trying to call SetupComplete.cmd (as I’m using an OEM version of Windows) in the FirstLogonCommands, but I don’t get as far as logging on so I don’t think it’s that.
Has anyone else experienced this issue or perhaps know what the cause could be?
The only way out of it is to re-image the system with the image taken before running sysprep.
Ryan’s link worked! This can be marked as solved :) Thanks gents!
Many thanks, gents. I’ll take a look at this when I get into the office and see what happens :) It’s nice to know it’s not just me having issues with sysprep this week!
@Joe-Schmitt oops, I didn’t see you shared the link, lol, sorry.
Here is the thread link to all we have tried
@RobTitian16 I had this issue just the other day it is in the answer file somewhere but I couldn’t pin point it. I was given and answerfile to try from someone else on here and it worked I will share. It worked for me.
@RobTitian16 why do you have:

The user had a very similar issue (boot loop due to a bad unattend file), there’s several Windows 10 unattend files posted from various users in our forums.
It’s most likely something to do with the drivers (or antivirus) if it reboots at that point, imo.
