So for this tutorial I will keep it short. If you had the same experience then you are in luck…

Easy fix to SCCM 2012 error 0x00004005 (AKA task sequence failed 0x00004005)

1. Open Regedit

2. Set the values listed below:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\Status\SysprepStatus\CleanupState\
Set to value: 2

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\Status\SysprepStatus\GeneralizationState\
Set to value: 7

Set to value: 1

3. Open elevated command prompt and run the following commands:

msdtc -uninstall

then

msdtc -install

    then finally run this command

cscript slmrg.vbs -rearm   <- this is the missing secret sauce from other blog posts
