Windows 7: Local Group Policies created for user, but sysprep removes settings

Local Group Policies created for user, but sysprep removes settings

Hello Forum,

I have a base image, where I have configured the default profile using the administrator account. I created user ids, but did not log into these ids. I used Local Group Policy to edit the policy of one non administrator ids I created. After sysprepping the computer, and successfully copying the profiles, the user is not configured with the group policy settings. Any idea why this is happening or how to get around this problem?

Same deal as this guy Sysprep deletes Local Group Policy but his question was never answered.

We deal mostly with consumer issues here, so you might get that answered quicker at Technet which deals more with mass deployment issues.
