Sysprep Problems

I recently had an issue with Windows Deployment Services where I has created an image using sysprep, but on installing it I was greeted with the error message: “Windows could not finish configuring the system. To attempt to resume configuration, restart the computer.” I figured out by accident that if you reboot the system, hold down F8 during the BIOS and boot into safe mode, it will give you this error: “Windows cannot complete installation in Safe Mode. To continue installing Windows, restart the computer.” but on reboot it will successfully complete the install.

Hopefully this helps someone out there.
