This feature was disabled in Windows 7 as Microsoft claims the profiles are incompatible. You can copy the contents of Favorites, My Pictures, My Documents, etc ... manually though.

Here's a workaround option you may want to consider : http://joeelway.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!2095EAC3772C41DB!2708.entry
