On endpoints running Microsoft Windows 10 October 2018 Update or later, verify that the case-sensitivity attribute is disabled for folders in your source and target installation paths and \Windows\System32\drivers.

Check with technical support for the latest version of McAfee SysPrep. Provide accurate reputation values to McAfee Global Threat Intelligence by running McAfee GetClean (KB73044).
