Hi,

we want to deploy an Image ( Windows 7 ). We want to customize the default user profile, what is the best way to do this.

with winXP it was possible to just login as a testuser, modify what ever you want and then copy this profile over the default user profile, this doesnt work with windows7.

so whats the correct way ?

I had this problem awhile back too. Are you sysprepping the Win7 image before deploying? If so, are you using an answer file? In Win7 when you sysprep a machine first go into audit mode (more on this below) and then use an answer file, set the copyprofile=true attribute, and this will copy the administrator profile to the default user profile and your customizations will come over to any subsequent profiles created after imaging.

Here's a great step-by-step on sysprepping Win7 and copying customizations to the default user profile that I used recently for our Win7 images: http://blog.brianleejackson.com/sysprep-a-windows-7-machine-start-to-finish

Good luck!
