How to fix fatal sysprep error?
Server 2008 uses the same kernel as Vista and is available for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. Server 2008 R2 has the same kernel as Windows x64 and is only available for 64-bit platforms. THE UNIVERSE when it’s not WINDOWS!
Server 2008 SP2 does the same in the Vista SP2 role. You can find it in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Server 2008 R2 is our native Windows with the same bits as x64. It only exists in 64-bit versions.
Server with 2008 SP2 has the same bits as Vista with SP2. It is available in all 32 and 64 bit versions. Server 2008 R2 is similar to Windows 7 64-bit. Nothing comes up other than a 64-bit template.

The error occurs when the sysrep GeneralizationState key is set to 9 in the Windows registry. So you need to change the value. Here’s how: Press Windows key + R to open Run.
If you look at this particular sysprep log in the panther directory (for some reason Windows creates a panther folder when you run sysprep), the idea is actually listing the particular dll that is having problems loading while the process is running. The location you see is c:\Windows\System32\sysprep\Panther and the driver file is setupact.log.
