    Well, the question says "How to migrate user profiles" located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\ProfileList.

    And the answer accepted doesn't contain any information on how to migrate user profiles?

    Now I came to know that the above article posted by me applies.

    Could you elaborate on this, alimu?

    I wasn't sure those days but now I'm sure that article supplied by me works great if you use a script with some registry settings to migrate *User Profiles*.

    The question itself states that asker needs to migrate only user profiles. However, JBlond has supplied the write article as asker also needs to migrate user accounts with profile.
