Sysprep problem after running it on windows 7

After I run sysprep on windows 7 pro and restart I get error
""Windows Could Not Finish Configuring the System...” during the starting services stage.
I check in log file and get error
Number of $mft security descriptors failed

how i found log
The error message comes up during the "starting services" phase; press Shift+F10 to open a CMD window.
CD C:\Windows\Panther to navigate to the folder where the logs are.
Tracer setup.etl -o logfile.csv (check TechNet’s tracerpt full syntax) In my case, this worked without navigating to other folders first.
Notepad logfile.csv will open the log file

please advice how i can resolve the problem

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

I have had a very similar experience after running sysprep on Windows Server 2008 R2 VMs with XenApp installed.  After searching for answers for quite a while I finally decided to rebuild the system and all the apps and not install Citrix XenApp and then run another syprep which ended up being successful, but also it may have something to do with Windows Media player (which on Server 2008 R2 gets installed with the Desktop Experience which i did not install the 2nd time). If your experiencing the same issue you can Ctrl+Alt+Del and launch Explorer.exe from the task manager and poke around a bit but no matter what I tried I could not get it to boot properly afterwards.  So i just decided to cut my losses and start from scratch.

you need to stop all windows media player tasks. including the wmpnetwrkservice prior to sysprep. (known problem)
