    Unlike EVERYONE else in this article, I am still getting a 0x00004005 immediately when I start SYSPREP. Before anyone asks, no, there are no app pkgs referenced in either logs. I have been searching all day for a solution to this and have only found these directions over and over and over again. Although, this one was the first one that said to delete/rename the Panther folder. I thought that must be it. Alas, this apparently unsolvable problem still exists. If anyone can point me in the correct direction, that would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Great write-up! What does the MSDTC section do? I am able to clear the error without changing MSDTC.

      Great solution, it is working in Windows 2008 R2 also. One step missed here is, we need to restart the machine, after that we can perform sysprep operation smoothly.

    It's ridiculous that this still happens to Windows 10 in 2018. I do wonder how many of the commentators here had this happen on an HP machine? I saw this on an HP EliteDesk 800 G3 Mini, but I've also seen reports from various other HP models. The one common denominator seems to be the "Allow PCIe/PCI SERR# Interrupt" setting in the BIOS. Disable that and sysprep works fine. I blame both Microsoft and HP in equal measure for allowing this bug to persist for so many years. It's inexcusable.

    I did all the steps up until, "part one fixing boot filenon MBR" (step 1)
    I cant find any file that says window in any disk. Does this means my windows really did gone missing?
    How do did it happen and how do i fix this?

    Thanks, after trying everything this worked for me.
    The only extra thing I needed to do after following this tutorial to get it working was to disable windows media player through cmd (admin privs) with the command 'net stop WMPNetworkSvc'.
