Windows 7: User Profiles - Create and Move During Windows 7 Installation

Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1
 
 

Hi Kari,
I have tried various files without the <Display> section with the same results.
The <Display> section is superfluous, but it was present in the version I used in the successful installation. Sysprep just ignored it. Here is the corresponding section from the setupact.log of the previous, successful installation:
Code:

2012-12-08 12:41:59, Info                         [Shell Unattend] FolderLocations: Moved 'C:\Users' to 'd:\Users'

2012-12-08 12:41:59, Info                         [Shell Unattend] FolderLocations: 'Default' set to 'd:\Users\Default'

2012-12-08  12:41:59, Info                         [Shell Unattend]  FolderLocations: 'ProfileImagePath' set to 'd:\Users\Administrator' 
2012-12-08 12:42:04, Info                         [Shell Unattend] FolderLocations: Moved 'C:\ProgramData' to 'd:\ProgramData'

2012-12-08 12:42:04, Info                         [Shell Unattend] Exiting 'oobeSystem' pass with status 0x001f1000
However, looking at the old setupact.log file revealed my error: I was expecting the <FolderLocations> move to have already taken place when I rebooted to audit mode. However, in your instructions, it doesn't take place until the final restart exits from Audit Mode, as you suggested above. Thanks for your help!

Hi kari, Is there any changes to the latest win 7 version regarding userprofile relocation?
followed your guide for win 7 x64 september 2017 but nothing changes, here's my xml
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
    <settings pass="oobeSystem">
        <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
            <FolderLocations>
                <ProfilesDirectory>d:\User</ProfilesDirectory>
                <ProgramData>d:\ProgramData</ProgramData>
            </FolderLocations>
        </component>
    </settings>
    <cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:E:/sources/install.wim#Windows 7 ULTIMATE" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
</unattend>

DISM command shows ULTIMATE as well, so i can't figure out what i missed..
