Why don't you roll them back to XP? I assume there are other <previously bought> laptops running XP arround? That is what we do, just to keep a certain consitency in our computer park, and saves us a lot of hassle, specially in a networked community/school. Sorry, you must have noticed that, hence your question. .
Anyway, I would love to hear an answer to your question, interesting.... I will be lurking :-)!

Can you give a bit more information about how your domain is set up, i.e. are you using mandatory profiles, using folder redirection, etc? Also, are there any specific error codes being logged in the Event Viewer of the Vista machines?

i had the same probem in one of my schools, basically after a search of the web and trying to find out what would exactly fix it and trying different ways i did the folllowing: stopped roaming profiles for the specific user, deleted all folders under c:\users\ and then went into the registry and deleted all keys relating to all the users under HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS NT\CURRENTVERSION\PROFILELIST - i think it was that key. then i popped the roaming profile back into AD, got the user to log on and log off so it created a new profile and it worked - took me 2 visits to figure it out im sure theres probly an easier way but this was ages ago and the school was getting rather annoyed.
