You want to Sysprep a Windows 8 or 8.1 workstation.
Sysprep on Windows 8 and 8.1 often fails with a 3.14 error. This is due to the fact that Windows runs scheduled maintenance tasks exactly one hour after the operating system’s initial setup, and they prevent Sysprep from executing.
- Open a Command Prompt
- Run the command:
C:> Schtasks.exe /change /disable /tn “MicrosoftWindowsAppxDeploymentClientPre-staged app cleanup
You should be able to run Sysprep as normal at this point.
