I am hoping there is someone out there who has figured this out. I am trying to do a scripted install of windows 7 via the kbox 2000. I have created an unattend.xml file using the Windows System Image Manager. I can deploy the scripted install and I am able to have a basic windows 7 install with only one prompt for the computer name.

In my environment, I need to set up the end user desktop for them with the common apps and internet shortcuts on their desktop. I also need to configure a couple of apps with the correct settings to allow them to work right. On windows XP, this was easy as I would just create a default profile and image the PC. I can't do this here. So does anyone know how to deploy a scripted install of windows 7 and also setup a default profile?

There is an option to CopyProfile using the Answer file, you just set it for true. So when you sysprep the system the answer file will copy the current profile as the default. See this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/973289

Using a profile to handle the settings isn't encouraged by Microsoft, but it can work in some cases. Most anything can be accomplished with a post install task; Install software, use User state migration to import a favorite profile, etc. This would be the preferred method of handling these types of thing I believe.
