How do I get the Copy Profile feature to work in Windows 7

Hi all, I have created a profile set it up with all the proper settings (desktop icons, power settings, pinnned taskbar items etc) and put the proper information in my answer file so that it gets copied over to the "default profile" however it doesn't seem to be working.  I followed the instructions in this previous posting  below however it still doesn't seem to be working

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/Windows_7/Q_24871556.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+7+default+profil+window

I've attached a sample of my unattend.xml file. Can someone help me out here? 500 points will be rewarded because I need this to be completed ASAP.

The setting you have as "True" is the right one

Read the following link in full (If you haven't already)

Looks like that for some reason its copying the admin profile which is built-in installation.

I haven't done alot of them lately so a bit out of touch with this, but hopefully the links and info will help

will keep checking back here.
