I too have seen this happen. Usually happens only when there are
multiple NICs in a machine, either real ethernet ones or FireWire. But
since you are using a VM, I bet you do not have firewire.
Before running sysprep on the image, disable the network adapter at the
Shutdown the AFS service.
start -> run -> cmd
View -> Show hidden devices
then find and delete all NICs, including the loopback adapter
This should remove pre-configured network adapters from your syspreped
image. Hopefully this will allow newly detected ones to be correctly
setup and the loopback adapter install to work as desired.
