Description: Task Sequence: Image Capture Wizard has failed with the error code (0x00004005).
" Each OS capture will run sysprep command which will reset windows product activation. However, there is a max 3 times per computer limit for the sysprep command. After the 3 time, the clock to reset Windows Product Activation can no longer be reset."
To overcome this 3 Sysprep time limitaiton, following are the walkaround:
1. Open regedit and look for:
Set to value: 2
Set to value: 7
Set to value: 1
Then, run the command:
msdtc -uninstall (wait a few seconds)
msdtc -install (wait a few seconds)
Then, reboot the system and try to run sysprep again.
