    Hello Nishikant raj,

    Welcome to the MS Q&A forum.

    Please make sure you deleted the panther directory (C:\Windows\Panther) before running the 'sysprep.exe /oobe /generalize /shutdown'.

    Another option to find the root cause is to attach the OS disk as data disk of the failed VM to any other working VM and review the c:\windows\panther\ logs.

    Remove machine specific information by deprovisioning or generalizing a VM before creating an image


    I hope this helps!
