Windows 10 osd capture fails with "windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computer's hardware"

I'm trying to build a thick image for SCCM OSD with Windows 10 Enterprise x64.
I have tried two images so far, one with Win10 LTSB and one with build 1511.
Both have ended with a Hyper-V VM that will not run after the capture (I used an ISO of the capture media from SCCM 2012 R2 1511).
I get this error after the "Getting Devices Ready" section:
"Windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computer's hardware."
I found that if I run Sysprep (no SCCM capture) that it also fails.
I'm running OOBE and Generalize.

SOLUTION:  Don't connect to the domain while building the image and also be sure to delete all accounts and run as the local administrator.

Note: Our ERP system is complicated to install, so doing an automated build is not possible, so comments about me not using MDT or a Task Sequence do not apply.

Summary:
I have the following installed:
