Messaggio al boot della vostra VM Microsoft: “VMware Image Customization in progress”

Posted on 12 febbraio 2015 di


E’ un problema legato a come la macchina è stata creata in origine e può essere risolto così:

If a virtual machine template is created with an incorrect operating system type, future virtual machine deployments that include customization options may fail to deploy sysprep, causing the VMware image customization message to display each time the deployed virtual machine is started or if there is an interruption in the sysprep process that may result in a broken customization routine, causing sysprep to repeatedly attempt to run at boot up.
To remove the pending sysprep customization routine, you must edit the Windows operating system registry:
  1. Boot the affected Windows virtual machine and log in as an administrator account.
  2. Click Start > Run, type regedit, and click OK.
  3. Change the BootExecute key value.
    1. For Windows 2003, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and other older Windows operating systems, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\.

      For Windows 2008 R2, Windows 2012, and Windows 7 search regedit for Session Manager. The key BootExecutemay be found in the following locations:

      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\
      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Session Manager\
      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Session Manager\
      • Other similar locations depending on the configuration of that particular Windows OS
    2. Change the BootExecute key value from:

      autocheck autochk * sysprepDecryptor.exe 


      autocheck autochk *

  4. Reboot the operating system.
