What I have been doing for last months was installing from original media, booting into audit mode, customizing whatever I wanted, generalizing and capturing, and using that image as the new one. After some problems yesterday I realized how confused I was.
Do I need to use copyprofile=true setting on the ORIGINAL image I am customizing? The thing is I thought that by generalizing in audit mode the builtin admin account was saved and I didn't have to worry abouut anything else. I simply put copyprofile=true in autounattend.xml and let it install. Now I don't know if I wasn't doing something wrong. It's not that it doesn't work, I am just confused because some changes to the profile seem to be saved....
What is the proper way of doing this then? Installing from original media, and going sysprep /oobe /generalize /shutdown /unattend:unattend.xml, where the .xml is the most basic thing with copyprofile parameter in it?
