Windows Server 2003 Roaming Profile Migration

Hi Experts,

We about to reimage all of 100 machines from Windows Xp to Windows 7, currently users having roaming profiles on a 2003 DC,
Management would like us to copy all staff's IE Favouries, .nk2 files and desktop icons and Signatures from thier existing profile to the new Windows 7 (v2) profile,
What would be the most efficiant way I could achieve this, I don't want to use USMT, that would involve having to manually go around to each machine copy to external device and copy back once the deployment completed, what are my options?

Regards,
Craig

Unfortunately there won't be any suggestions as there is no direct upgrade path from XP ton Win7. It should be obvious that it would be impractical to try and capture individualized user information from the server side and create 100 custom images, so that leave the course of action you mention, saving off this information to an external drive for each user and then additing it back after the re-image.

I managed to set a Gpo to copy desktop icons/signature/.nk2 files/ie favourites from the old windows xp profile to the new V2 windows 7 profile when the user logs on first time to thier windows 7 pc
