Ever had to perform a sysprep on a machine more than 3 times? If you’ve worked with VMs, you’ve probably had trouble with this. Here’s a workaround that will let you sysprep windows more than 3 times by resetting the count of syspreps:
- Boot to Recovery Mode and open command prompt and enter the following commands on command line:
reg load HKLM\MY_SYSTEM “%~dp0Windows\System32\config\system”
reg delete HKLM\MY_SYSTEM\WPA /f
reg unload HKLM\MY_SYSTEM
- Reboot. Windows will say that it is not a genuine copy. Enter the KMS key from the following site and use the slmgr /ipk 489J6-VHDMP-X63PK-3K798-CPX3Y (Generic Windows 7 KMS Product Key)
- Reset sysprep keys and reinstall the MSDTC service as follows:
After done with the registry, do the following :
- Start -> Run : msdtc -uninstall (wait few seconds)
- Start -> Run : msdtc -install (wait few seconds)
- Restart the machine
- Check the registry for the right registry keys values
I haven’t posted in a while. I keep promising myself I will post more and I never do. I need to change that. I hope . . .
I finally decided to buy myself a quality keyboard at home (and work). I guess this technically isn’t the first, but aside from the Razer . . .
