Sysprep Ignoring ProfilesDir Option
Posted on 2008-11-04
I have a Windows XP SP 2 image created using Sysprep (Use Mini-Setup, Reseal), where the base image has the Profiles directory set to d:\ profiles. Within the Sysprep.inf, there is an entry in GuiUnattended for ProfilesDir=D:\Profiles - although reading around, that functionality may only exist for Unattended.txt, I'm not positive. There are 3 folders within D:\profiles - Admin, All Users, and Default User. I have also copied the Admin profile to the Default User profile to persist changes made to the base image.
The problem is, once Mini-Setup runs, Windows reverts to C:\Documents and Settings for all profile folders - except the Admin profile, which continues to use d:\profiles\admin
Has anyone seen this behavior before and do you know of a way to fix it?
