create user profile windows 7

mmercaldi used Ask the Experts™
I am building a laptop for the CEO of my company, and I need to mail it to him.  I would like to have his profile built before I send it to him minus the outlook setup.  Is there a way I can create his profile on the laptop without him signing in so I can transfer his files and favorites?

I should also note that I cannot use the USMT for this since his laptop kept blue screening and we are not sure why.  We are also in a windows domain environment.

He will require to login ones atleast to get the profile created.
If you cannot create the profile before shipping it, how about creating an  accessible folder?

Hi Friend,

No, You can not Create a Profile Unless you log in to the OS.  Better you can Guide Him to Login and Do the Configuration.
