Default User Profile Creation
Posted 30 August 2007 - 06:25 AM
Is there another way of possibly creating the default user profile like in XP you could create the profile then copy it over to the $OEM$ folders area and it would just copy it over during the installation.
Is there something similiar to this or a better way of creating the customized default user profile?
Is it possible to do a vista installation then customize the profile and then capture the image with imagex, then use this new wim image in your unattend and then set the copy profile setting to true and accomplish the customized default user now?

The default users reg is located at %systemdrive%\Users\Default\ntuser.dat
Always modify the registry with extreme caution.
reg load HKLM\test D:\Vista\Build\mount\Users\Default\NTUSER.DAT
reg unload HKLM\test

Thanks for the great tip. It's just like mmc and secedit.
Could be used in conjunction with above link!

Mount the install.wim
load the reg hive.
execute a .reg file changing all entries from "[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT" to "[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\test"
unload the hive
unmount the install.wim
easy as pie
