Just in case someone has encountered this same issue before I spend hours fixing it...

I have a master win7 image i have deployed to literally thousands of machines. The image is deployed via latest version k2000, syspreped image deployment. On some occasions when a person logs in, usually the second time, the default user profile fails to be found. The Default profile is suppose to be copied from the admin profile according to the sysprep unattend file. I'll get an error on login stating

C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop refers to a location that is unavailable... 

Often times reimaging will fix this issue. Any ideas?

We had that happen with an older version of Symantec AV.  It was holding the files locked and windows only waits so long for the files to be availbe on boot them moves on.  Some app is holding up the boot process, When this happened to us it was on a random basis, due to a sequence of factors were involved to cause the timing to get messed up.
