Windows could not parse or process unattend answer file [C:WindowsPantherunattend.xml] for pass [specialize].

The answer file is invalid.

Hello Kyle

I am aware of this problem as it is an old one.

People are still searching for answers. I might have the right one in order to solve it.

What you must do here, in this case, is launch a command prompt (Shit+F10) and type in regedit. Press enther, and in the window opened go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE >  SOFTWARE > MICROSOFT > INTERNET EXPLORER > UNATTEND BACKUP > ACTIVE SETUP > FAVORITES LIST-> FAVORITE and delete the stuff there .

This will probably fix the issue.

I hope you will find this information useful.
