Create sysprep.

Start the VM and login ("guru"/"guru"). Run a commandprompt as administrator.

  1. First change the path.

  2. Then enter the sysprep command with parameters. It is possible you get an error, like here. If not, skip the next steps.

Let's find out what the fuss is all about. Open the log file. A web search leads me to here.

Open Powershell as "Administrator" and run the following cmdlets.

Import-Module Appx
Import-Module Dism
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Where PublisherId -eq 8wekyb3d8bbwe | Format-List -Property PackageFullName,PackageUserInformation

Look for a package "BingSearch" and copy it's full name

Remove that package using Powershell.

Go back to the regular command prompt. The sysprep should be working and the system will shutdown afterwards.
