VMware customization scripts does not complete when Mcafee HIPS IPS is enabled. When creating a Windows 7 master image for VMware View or just a regular vm, make sure that the IPS is disabled on your golden image.
Another note, my master image normally has full blown Mcafee HIPS, Antivirus, DLP etc. I normally delete registry key “AgentGUID” and “Macaddress” for a proper EPO registration. https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB56086
