Specialize Pass not working - Need Help!!

Q: Specialize Pass not working - Need Help!!

Hi All, I would suggest you read my old post here first:
https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/9be1effb-d44f-4987-872c-c1a2fe23aba3/autounattendxml-not-working?forum=w7itproinstall

Anyhow, where I work we have a single DR PC what has our basic company software/programs on and is imaged, and then deployed out to a large multiple of identical PC's at our disaster recovery facility in the event when needed. Our DR facility is connected
to our AD domain.
The DR PC's we use are HP EliteDesk 800G2 Desktop Mini's and have Windows 7 Pro x64 on them. Now capturing and restoring the image is not an issue and is is done via PXE booting using Symantic Ghost.

I have two major issues that need to be resolved very soon as we have a DR test coming up in a couple of months where we push the image out to a large number of identical PC's and test everything down in DR.

Issue 1: When ever sysprep is run with the "/generalize" option, windows fails to boot/reboot. Just get
a black screen in a continuous re-booting loop. Not even any error message, absolutely nada is shown!
Maybe it's got something to do with he ultra modern hardware/chipset/platform of the HP EliteDesk G2; all USB port are USB3 and the boot drive is a NVMe SSD.
To resolve this issue, I have to restore the image to the DR PC via PXE.
And Yes I have the following in my Autounattend.xml file under the
generalize pass.
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-PnpSysprep">
<PersistAllDeviceInstalls>true</PersistAllDeviceInstalls>
</component>
I have even set PersistAllDeviceInstalls to 1 under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\Sysprep\Settings\sppnp


Issue 2: When sysprep is run without the /generalize option, sysprep completes however the Specialize pass of my Autounattended.xml file has no affect and the DR PC is not joined to our domain when it reboots nor has the computer name changed! (The
DR PC is NOT on the domain to start with)
No matter what I do, I can't seem to get anything in the Specialize pass of my Autounattend.xml to have any affect.

The sysprep logs (Panther) and the Autounattend.xml files are attached below:

Preferred Solution: Specialize Pass not working - Need Help!!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello - 
In the past we applied copyprofile to our answerfiles used at the sysprep stage before we captured images and deployed them using WDS. 
We are now trying to sys prep and capture the image without this answer file -- but then apply the answer file with copyprofile set to true in the specialize pass to the captured image in WDS (checking "allow image to install in unattended mode"
in the install image properties and setting the file)
We had tested this successfully before but now we are failing on the specialize pass. Setuperr.log seems to show the copy profile failing. 
When does copy profile need to be applied? Must it be applied via an answer file at the sysprep stage in order to work properly? Or can an answer file with copyprofile set to true be applied to the captured install image in WDS?

Thank you -

Hi all, I've been working on a new x64 image in what is predominantly an x86 client environment. So, MDT (2010) is what we're using to deploy - and it all seemed to go very well after imaging a bunch of laptops with a .wim file with which I integrated
SP1 manually (using DISM). I then went to integrate all the latest updates in the same way, but sadly this didn't work as there was an update of some description which seemed to break it (I excluded a couple of updates known to cause issues).

So, I decided to work on capturing a wim from a VM after I applied all the updates. Something that seemed to go pretty seamlessly, but sadly when I copy the wim over, then run the deployment, I get a failure on the 'specialize' pass. There are several points
at which the BDD log states it cannot find the product key, but then we use KMS so I'm assuming this isn't needed. That being said, there is a key in the unattend.xml, so I've become a little confused by this..
Here's the specialize portion of the unattend.xml:

<settings pass="specialize">

Hello,

We're deploying Windows 8.1 to our public computing labs right now. This is the first time we're doing mass deployments with SCCM and we've run into the dreaded sysprep error just after applying the image. I think we've
narrowed this down to drivers but can't seem to figure it out. As an example, *almost none* of our hundreds of Optiplex 9010s will accept the image, yet hundreds of other models (Optiplex 7010, Optiplex 9020) accept the same image without issue.

I saw plenty of other posts about this error but I don't think this could be an unattend file or sysprep issue. Why would it work on some machines but not others?

Has anyone experienced a similar issue?

Thanks in advance!!

Sysprep could not parse or process the unattend answer file for pass [specialize]. The settings specified in the answer file cannot be applied. The error was detected while processing settings for component [Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup].

A:SCCM Windows 8.1 Deployment - Sysprep could not parse or process the unattend answer file for pass specialize

For those with a similar issue - 

This turned out to be a driver problem for us, as suspected. In speaking with Premier Support, we dug through the CBS.log on a failed machine and confirmed it. In CBS, we traced the setup process to where drivers get installed and found a couple failures
(network, audio, etc.). Setup failed immediately after that process.

We were under the impression that our device drivers were current in SCCM, however they were not. In SCCM, we were ignoring driver import errors while using the Dell Command Deploy Utility for CABs. The errors were a result of the 2008 site server's inability
to recognize the newer Windows 8.1 drivers. We applied KB 2837108 and KB 2921916 to the site server and re-imported drivers. The sysprep error went away after this.

I setup an ACER VM6620G (Win7x86) how I wanted, including disabling the administrator account and creating an administrator user "PVA"
Navigated to \\wds\DeploymentShare$\Scripts and ran the litetouch script. Chose my "Sysprep and Capture" task. 
Everything went off without a hitch until I restarted the technician pc. 
I got the dreaded
"Windows could not parse or process unattend answer file [C:\windows\Panther\unattend.xml] for pass [specialize]. A component or setting specified in the answer file does not exist"
I tried to deploy the captured image to the same computer and got the same error
I've scoured the internet for solutions (Shift+10 opens command prompt. Good to know!) with no luck.
I've saved the unattend.xml and looked for errors- going as far as to install an x86 Win7 virtual machine to validate the unattend.xml file in WISM


Other information that might be useful:
   I never used WISM to create an unattend.xml nor did I attach one to the image. 
   I didn't try to copy user profiles/settings/migrate etc
   I imported the captured image to WDT. Created a standard task and added 2 nodes 
     -Inject Drivers
     -Install Application

As a side, I've got another image that I've already injected the drivers/installed the application as a test. Everything went smoothly.

Hi there,
I have a WDS server setup with images but I am having trouble with the unattend answer file bit. I always get an error after deploying in image during setup that it had trouble during the Speicalize phase. I believe it has something to do with the product
key most likely. I am wanting to skip product key entirely and leave it blank as the computers I'm deploying are all Lenovo business computers with the on board chip for activation.



The exact error I get is
"Windows could not parse or process the unattend answer file for pass [specialize]. The settings specified in the answer file cannot be applied. The error was detected while processing settings for component [Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup]"

I am able to get the computer up and running by going into REGEDIT, Childcompletion key and changing the value of "Setup" from 1 to 3 but I am wondering how I can prevent this entirely.

Running a HP 1220C (Love it more everyday). Unfortunately HP has discontinued them otherwise I would have got another one in case this one croaks.

But last Friday I had to reboot cause I installed a anti-virus update. So after rebooting I shut down cause I was heading out of town for the weekend. But at the last minute I decided to print out maps of both O'hara and Denver International, so I knew where the gates for my connecting and departing flights were.

I tried multiple times to get the printer to power up with no luck, so I gave up. And then tonight messing around with it the same results. So I reinstalled the driver package for it and that IMO didn't help so the thought was going through my mind I was going to have to look into a new printer.

But while reading my e-mail's, the looney thing powered up on its own. Practically scared me out of my chair.

What possibilities is there that would cause something like this and what could I do to correct it?
 

A:Anyone here specialize in Printer psychology?

Double click the desktop icon (My Computer, ect..)>then double click printers> & right click & select properties of the printer you are using.> Then left click the Control tab at the top of the dialog box.> Look for something that says Auto Power Off/On (or something like that).

Set it to what you want.........or not at all.

You can set the printer to automatically come on whenever you press the Print button on most programs. And the printer will automatically turn itself off after a selected number of minutes/hours, if you aren't using it.

You also have quite a few other things that you can set to tailor to you desires, such as print w/color or Black & white...paper size, graphic control, ect...

Play around with it & have fun. If you really screw it up badly, you can always delete the printer installed (from the Printers folder) & then just re-install by double clicking the Add Printer icon in the printers folder & select the brand name & model # that you have plugged into your computer.

I have recently installed ATA (1.8.6645.28499). It is now in to the second week of its learning phase and it is raising a considerable number of false pass-the-hash alerts when users initiate Citrix sessions from their usual PC using pass-thru authentication,
eg a typical alert would be:
Bloggs,Fred's hash was stolen from one of the computers previously logged into by Bloggs,Fred and used from xx1234
Clearly this is spurious - in each case the user is initiating a Citrix session from their
own PC and the xx1234 represents a Citrix server in the farm in every case.
1) Why am I only receiving a handful of related PTH alerts each day when I have many thousands of Citrix users, all authenticating in the same manner?
2) How can I supress these alerts?
What I effectively want to say is 'IF the suspected PTH is being triggered BY the user on their OWN PC and the target server is in our Citrix farm' then ignore it. I can't see a way of setting an exclusion range like this for PTH events though?

An interesting study on the global underground company shows that money can get you anything -- wherever you are.

China's hacking hardware, the United States' assassins or Japan's taboo content -- in the Dark Web, only money matters.

On Tuesday, Trend Micro researchers released a whitepaper (.PDF) documenting the results of an investigation into the Web's underbelly, asking if the underground is connected globally, or whether there are countries which have a certain illegal "specialization" in goods or services.

There are three loose layers of the Internet; the "Clear" Web, the "Deep" Web and the "Dark" Web. The Clear Web is where we go for daily tasks and to visit standard websites through search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo.

The "Deep" Web is the layer underneath which is not indexed by standard search engines, and has to be accessed through a service such as the Tor network to access .onion websites hosted in this area.

Lastly, the "Dark" Web is a fraction of the Deep Web where illegal dealings take place, such as the purchase of weapons, drugs, counterfeit documents and hacking tools.

The average person is unlikely to go beyond the Clear Web, but the rest of the Internet is open to anyone using the right setup.
Over the past few years, Trend Micro has conducted a number of research projects focusing on these areas and the underground economy at large. Within the latest resear... Read more

Questions: (BTW, this query is being generated from the Switchboard)
1. How do I prompt the user for the dates in Access? I can't use parameters and I don't understand how to use a prompt otyher than that.
2. How do I get those user responses into the query below
3. How do I write the querydef?

The SQL query is attached

Thanks!

I can't seem to do anything , like task scheduler msconfig etc.

How do i get pass this?

Sorry, but you don't. You will need your network administrator.

Hi,
I am having difficulties to enable VNP pass-through on my DFL-800 router. I’m not very familiar with some of the technical terms such as IPSec, PPTP, and L2TP and what do they actually do. My previous router Linksys RV082 had no problems. There was one option to disable or enable VPN pass-thought and everything was simple. I have setup up a VPN connection on my Windows XP and Vista and off I went. I could connect to my work network by supplying host name www.mycompany.com and my login credentials.

When I replaced my routers and try to connect, Windows connection hangs on Authenticating User Name and Password. And then fails saying that could not connect to a network.
Obviously my router blocks some communications.

Could you please let me know how to set-up this D-Link router as I am running out of ideas.
There is too many settings in this box to play with and I’m not really sure what to touch, how and what not to.

I have tried to play with IpRules – trying to create some and enable IPSec, PPTP, and L2TP one at the time but none of those attempts was successful.

I’m a little pissed off at my self at this moment that I have to use my old Linksys because I can’t figure out how this new box works.

Please help!!!

Cheers:

CC

Hi,
I've got a problem I'm hoping someone can help me with..

I've got a Belkin F5D8231-4 v2 N1 Wireless Router and a D-Link DSL-504G 4 Port Modem which I am trying to setup a VPN Connection through.
I'm using the built in VPN server in Windows XP Professional SP2, I can connect to the VPN internally but not externally - When trying to connect externally the client freezes up on "verifying username and password" but I dont think its even getting as far as connecting to the server.
I've opened up the ports in the firewall, and have forwarded port 1723 on TCP to the servers internal static IP address. The modem itself is running in Bridge mode to the router so I'm assuming that I don't have to open any ports or anything on that for it to work. I have contacted Belkin who assure me that a VPN can be established through that router, and weren't able to offer me much assistance.

what I've got setup is this:
modem (192.168.2.253) ---> Router (192.168.2.254) - - - - (wireless) - -> VPN Server (192.168.2.2)

I haven't actually been able to find anything that suggests that the clients are even getting through the modem and router to the server.. Any suggestions?

The scenario is that I have multiple APs in the building but one network. So generally id like to know if users are able to log into the wifi of the same SSID but to connect to certain APs, there will be an extra password that needs to be entered. Is this possible?
 

A:Is it possible to set same SSID but different pass for APs?

I've downloaded Internet Explorer 9, and I liked it, but there are two things I had them on firefox that I want them on IE 9,

1) Spell check: When I type something in a box or anywhere, if I make a spelling mistake it underline me the word and tells me it is incorrect, and gives me some options.
Specki worked, but it doesn't correct every mistake?

2) Reload every: It refreshes a page automitaclly from 0 seconds, you choose the time, I searched I found yrefresher, auto refresher, but they didn't work, any other?

Also in some sites when I type my password in IE 9 it gives a nofication if I want to save my password or no, but in some sites it doesn't?

For some reason every time windows starts up i get a found new hardware message for my mouse, keyboard, monitor and video card. Even after I install the drivers. It tells me that none of these pass xp authentication. I checked and everything is ok to use with XP. Why is this? Also when I turn on the power I end up in bios and I have to hit F1 to continue... if I dont windows wont boot up, this just started happening after I had a problem with my new video card. Thank you for your time.

A:will not pass authentication

Hi InwoodK!!

Try to turn off the computer. Try to take out the CMOS battery from the computer, and put it back after a couple of minutes. Try to restart the computer back after that. See if that resolves the issue










WARNING!
Make sure you turn off the power plug before opening the case. It is better if you unplug the power cable from the wall socket as well. If you have any doubt, STOP AND ASK FIRST!! Make sure also you discharge yourself before touching anything inside the computer. You can do so by touching the computer case for a moment before opening it.
