The result will be one of the following values:

IMAGE_STATE_COMPLETE – Vista was successfully installed
IMAGE_STATE _UNDEPLOYABLE – The current phase of Setup is not yet finished
IMAGE_STATE_GENERALIZE_RESEAL_TO_OOBE – generalize pass finished and will go into Windows Welcome next
IMAGE_STATE_GENERALIZE_RESEAL_TO_AUDIT – generalize pass finished and will go into audit mode next
IMAGE_STATE_SPECIALIZE_RESEAL_TO_OOBE – specialize pass finished and will go into Windows Welcome next
IMAGE_STATE_SPECIALIZE_RESEAL_TO_AUDIT – specialize pass finished and will go into audit mode next
