Is the USB stick formatted in FAT32?

If yes, the process has reached the 4GB limitation for FAT32 format.

Details are in the link below.

"Type format fs=fat32 quick, and then press ENTER." is not correct and shall be replaced by "Type format fs=ntfs quick, and then press ENTER."

Besides, regarding the local group policies, they are not removed but the SID for the old user are removed after running sysprep.

The best way to solve is to export the local group policies before you run sysprep and import the exported local group policies after the computer is deployed.
