Need Policy Help in Win 7 Pro

I have been unable to get this resolved.  I am creating a 2nd question in an attempt to find help.

I have a small peer to peer network. We spent a long time setting up the policy on 1 pc. We then imaged it over to the other 19.  The small peer to peer network is locked down... but there is no Domain Controller.

Every attempt I have made to "copy" the policy over to a NEW Computer (to be used in a new similar peer to peer network) seems to have failed.  I have followed a lot of how to's on google.

Once we import an inf or any of the other means.... if I run cmd it opens up.  BUT on any one of the original computers it is locked down.
On the original network,  any time a delete a profile and create a new standard user... the restrictions take a hold to that new user.

Any help would be appreciated greatly.

Clone Zilla
Still have to activate the OS and Office on each machine...and name each pc for the workgroup ... but all software and polices moved over.

you might need to sysprep those cloned Computers

From original Computer with prepared Group policy
Open %systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy\ Within this folder, there are two folders - “machine” and “user”. Copy these folders  to USB stick and copy that to other computers

and run GPUPDATE /force

By the way, I saw your another (same) topic question and I have to say secpol.mcs is non-sense , as this is only for security settings

Do you have a server at all in the network?

@David Fiala  One of the options I tired was coping those 2 folders over you are talking about. That did not seem to work either.   I already had an standard user account on the new machine.  CMD still came right up so it tells me it did not work. I wish it was that easy.   I have been using gpedit yes.  

@yo_bee No server it is peer to peer.  If I had a domain controller set up it would be much easier.
Unfortunately, that was not budgeted. I am lucky to have what I have to be honest.

That is a very tight budget.  For 19 people a standard desktop hardware would suffice to help manage easier.  Good Luck.
