Windows 7: Account and profiles management

Account and profiles management

Hi

I have Windows 7 SP1 64-bit and I configured an Administrators account.

Now, having to create 5 Users accounts,I would like to create them using the same settings (of the desktop, the Internet Options, the power saving options, the WMP options, ...) of the account already configured. How do I do this using only Microsoft solutions?

Thanks

Bye

These two xml files should be fine:

For Windows 7 SP1 32-bit:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
<settings pass="specialize">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS"
xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<CopyProfile>true</CopyProfile>
</component>
</settings> <cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim://<computerName>/<Source_dir>/install.wim#Windows 7 <Edition>" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
</unattend>
For Windows 7 SP1 64-bit:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
<settings pass="specialize">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS"
xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<CopyProfile>true</CopyProfile>
</component>
</settings> <cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim://<computerName>/<Source_dir>/install.wim#Windows 7 <Edition>" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
</unattend>
It is possible to merge the two xml files or not?

It is possible to create an xml file also valid for any edition?

In an installation of Windows 7 SP1, there is the install.wim or I must always specify its source path?

Thanks

I created the CopyProfile.xml file:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
<settings pass="generalize">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Security-Licensing-SLC" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State[/URL]" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance[/URL]">
<SkipRearm>1</SkipRearm>
</component>
</settings>
<settings pass="specialize">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State[/URL]" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance[/URL]">
<CopyProfile>true</CopyProfile>
</component>
</settings>
<cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim://<computerName>/<Source_dir>/install.wim#Windows 7 <Edition>" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
</unattend>
and I put it in an USB stick.
So, I planned to install Windows 7 normally, install the additional drivers, update Windows, go to audit mode with the c:\windows\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /audit command, delete the account created during installation, customize the Administrator account. Finally, I run the c:\windows\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /oobe /reboot /generalize /unattend:<USB stick unit>:\CopyProfile.xml command to go into OOBE mode. Right? Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks
