Windows 7 Regional Settings
Just trying to get a few things sorted for our deployment of Windows 7 this summer. Using a few test machines to try things up and identify any niggles.
One that I can't seem to sort is the Regional Settings. Although I set this in the the unattend.xml its not applying properly when someone logs on and is defaulting to US.
I have tried setting this as a Group Policy. At the moment all of our servers are 2003 but we use Admin Tools on Windows to connect to AD/GP etc. The way that I have tried is going to User Configuration --> Preferences --> Control Panel Settings --> Regional Options and creating a new 'Regional Options'.
When I go to set the options all of them are underlined red, which if I understand correctly means that they will not apply. (See below)
It has this on every setting that you can set in every tab. Does anybody know why this is doing it? Is it because we are using Server 2003?
Here is a view of the defined settings in the GP if it helps :

OK, might be my bad. I have just found this FYI: Group Policy Preferences > Regional Settings. so I will go away and try it and report back if it doesn't work.

if your using MDT i found that it ignored the regional settings specified in the unattend.xml but putting them in the deployment share options and it then read them correctly - for the initial setup/creation of the reference computer, bugged the hell out of me

Nahh we're not using MDT, we are just using WDS with an unattend.xl attached to the image.
I have 'set' the settings and they are now all green but the GPO is still not applying :/ . I ran the Group Policy Results Wizard on the computer that I am testing on and the GPO is not showed in the applied or denied GPO fields. Is there something that I am doing wrong or is it because Sevrer 2003 is being used?
Below is a screen shot of the settings in the 'Common' tab.

Anyone have any pointers? Not sure why this is not working?
