Problem copying a profile to default user profile - access denied

Ihen setting up a new machine to add to the domain I normally copy the local administrator profile to the default user profile so that all users get the same settings when they log in.  To do this I log in as local administrator - customize the settings.  Log out, restart machine, log in as domain admins, and copy the local admin to the default user folder adding the everyone group.  Usually this works without any problem.  On a new HP machine when I try to do this I get the following message:
Failed to set security on destination profile.  Access denied.

I've done this many times without any issues.

Would appreciate any advice on how to overcome this.

Is this how you are doing it, or manually?

Hi.  Sorry for the delay in replying.  We eventually resolved this by creating another local user (1) with Admin rights, rebooting, logging is as new (1) and setting up this new profile (1) to use as the default.  Then deleted previous local Administrator (2) profile, logged in as local Administrator (2) and copied the local user (1) to default.  Why it didn't work the way we normally do this I have no idea - corrupt profile or rights on the profile I guess.  Thanks for your suggestions.
