Hi all, I have just made a Windows 64-bit image however, im having a little issue. windows 7 no longer supports copying a custom users profile over as the default user (Even if i use Windows Enabler or open and paste profiles) it just will not do it. I even i go into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionProfileList and change the default profile to a nomal profile with just everyone persmission set to read and execute. Anyone have any idea's other than using sysprep?[!-- google_ad_section_end --]
Create a new local account (I use an account called custom_default). Add the account to the Administrators group. Log into that acccount & configure it as you like.
Log off custom_default & log in with your local admin account. Remove custom_default from the Administratos group. In regedit, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionProfileList & change Default to point to %SystemDrive%Userscustom_default (instead of %SystemDrive%UsersDefault).
Log off, then log back on to the local admin account. Go to Control Panel & select System. Select Advanced System Setting & under User Profiles select the Setttings button. Select the Default Profile (which you pointed to custom_default in the registry) & select Copy to. Browe to c:UsersDefault & click OK.
Under Permitted to use, click Change & give permissions to Everyone. Finally click OK & the contents of custom_default with be copied over default (the orginal default). After it gets done, go back to regedit & change the back to %SystemDrive%UsersDefault.
