Software Question


Sysprep won't run because I'm on an "upgraded" installation - I did a clean install

02/01/2016 10599 views
I'm getting an error the sysprep can't run because it's not available on upgraded systems. However, I have a fresh installation of Windows 10 Enterprise that I'm using. I should be able to use sysprep without issues. Here is the readout from the log file. I've highlighted the error:
