SCCM07: Build and capture OSD Windows 8 SCCM07

The first thing that flew in to my mind when RC of Windows 8 realesed was, is it deployable in sccm? I started but got some pretty errors whitin sysprep of the OS capture..

Here is the error code visible in Task Sequence log:

The task sequence execution engine failed executing the action (Prepare OS) in the group (Capture the Reference Machine) with the error code 4
Action output: 4 (e:\nts_sms_fre\sms\framework\tscore\bootimage.cpp,522)

pCmd->Sysprep(bActivate, bMsd), HRESULT=d0000004 (e:\nts_sms_fre\sms\client\osdeployment\prepareos\main.cpp,270)
De-Initialization successful
Exiting with error code 4
Failed to query firmware type.
Wait Callback (Error: D0000004; Source: WinHTTP)
Failed to prepare the system partition for staging.
Wait Callback (Error: D0000004; Source: WinHTTP)
Failed to pre-stage WINPE image, hr=0xd0000004
Unable to sysprep the machine, hr=d0000004
Sysprep’ing the machine failed, hr=d0000004. The operating system reported error 4: The system cannot open the file.

So it seems microsoft removed sysprep for SCCM07, but i have seen it work in CM2012 something i will try verry soon. But there is a workaround to apply W8 in CM07, the soulution can be found here: http://blog.danovich.com.au/2012/03/06/deploying-windows-8-with-sccm-2007-r3/
