I've been trying to finish off my XP disc and have found another problem...it seems random folders in my $OEM$\$Docs just don't seem to copy across properly.

All the other $OEM$ folders work fine, and indeed, some of the $OEM$\$Docs folders do as well...but not all of them. I think setup is wiping them out during the process perhaps...but I'm at a loss why.

I've got some customised folders in my "Default User\My Documents" and "All Users\My Documents" folders. The "All Users" ones copy across fine, the "Default User" ones do not. I figure that windows is wiping them out when it initialises the profile when GUI setup starts, so I added a folder to $OEM$\$Docs that I could xcopy across from cmdlines.txt, but these extra folders don't seem to get copied (or at the very least, they're missing when examined from a Shift+10 console). The custom Desktop.ini file however does get copied! So far I've concluded that any folders in the $OEM$\$Docs level won't work, nor will folders inside $OEM$\$Docs\Default User\My Documents.

...has anyone documented these issues anywhere so I can work around them without all this trial and error?

Is it possible that all the files not being copied have long filenames?

I gave up and just made folders under $1 and copy them into place with cmdlines.txt

Just seemed that certain folders wouldn't copy across. Very chort names...I renamed "Documents and Settings" to "Home" and "My Documents" to "Documents". I suppose I could have let text mode setup complete then mounted the partition and inspected what got copied across...but in the end all that matters is what actually happens...so cmdlines.txt it is.
