I'm currently putting the finishing touches on our Windows 7 unattended install via the K2000. I was wondering if anyone found the best way to set the Default Wallpaper across all logins on Windows 7. We cannot store our image on our server and initiate a GPO.


I actually wondered if it would be possible to include a zip file containing a post installation task and the wallpaper. The zip could contain a bat file that copied the wallpaper to the local machine and set the local GPO to use the newly copied wallpaper. I'm not sure if it would work though - has anyone done anything similar or am I just thinking crazily? Thanks!

It's easy enough, similar to your suggestion. Simply zip a package up with a bat file and your image. In that bat file, copy the image to somewhere that won't get deleted or touched by the user, then set it using the relevant registry keys. You will need a reboot for it to take effect, but no problem if your doing it in the build!

Test the registry settings on your machine before putting it into the build!


Hope that helps!
