I have a Windows 7 image that I captured with a Dell Precision T3500 with using sysprep in the OS. The command I ran was the following:
sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:unattend.xml

The machine then shutdown and after turning on I booted into the KBE and captured the image.
After the image finished capturing I booted back into Windows and changed the machine name back to what it was and then added it to the domain.

I then tried taking that image and applying it to the same exact hardware and once the image finished applying to the machine got to the sysprep section and once it said "Setup is starting services" It just stops there, it never gets to the next section. Am I able to use my sysprep file to add to the image? Does sysprep need to be part of a post install task or am I performing the proper step by typing the command above while I'm still in Windows? Thank you.

Did the original reboot without any issues?

Usually the service starting loop is caused by an error in the sysprep file.

I would trying syspreping without an answer file and see if that image works as expected.

If it does that means there was a problem with the file.
