Sysprep failing after installing Feb. windows updates?

Anyone else having sysprep issues after the February updates? I'm updating my existing gold image with Windows Update, snapping and recomposing, and each time it fails to sysprep. It doesn't leave any sysprep error logs either. It just doesn't finish and sits at the Windows login screen

Hi,

I assume you're talking about Windows 10, right? Which version ... 1909 or others?

Hi,

When creating reference images for Windows 10, Sysprep is going to fail if the machine have Internet access, and have enough time to start updating it's built-in applications, or install new ones as part of the consumer experience feature. This post is about preventing that from happening, and is a companion to uber-guide on building Windows 10 reference images in the real world:
