The machine is Windows 7 and has all software installed, a desktop image, and other OS settings configured.  Iwant to keep the settings from the test profile I used (as it ran through login scripts, GPO applications, etc.) even after the machine is sysprepped and has join a domain step in post install tasks.

if you want settings to hold for all users copy the test user's profile to default in the sysprep answer file.  I use a user in the domain to set all my classroom computers up with and then sysprep, copying that user to default.

add the copy profile true line as shown below:
