    This is basically what MDT does.

    Create your sysprep XML (unattend.xml) as you would then apply it with the above step

    Only to set the Keyboard.

    I used a tutorial on the K5 Computer Lab for mandatory profiles in Windows 7. Worked fine and that was in the last few months. It may help someone who, like me, struggles with this issue every time. Maybe it will work with Windows 8.

    If you use the SCCM capture media there are some things that should be noted.
    1. I found the copy profile command as part of the unattend.xml wasn't that reliable or successful. Could be my method but overall this didn't work for me.
    2. Use a VM so you can snapshot. This method will only work if you can revert to an earlier snapshot.

    My method.
    1. Prepare image to capture within SCCM.
    2. Create basic unattend.xml with ONLY the copy profile command.
    3. Run a general sysprep over the image with the unattend.xml you just created.
    4. Bring the machine back up and then use the SCCM capture media to capture the image.

    This has worked successfully for windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.

    i might create a blog about using this method within 8.1. I will keep you posted.

    The following tutorial would be a far better one to follow since it uses the Microsoft supported method of creating profiles...

    Once the profile has been created I also make additional changes to it using the method described below (for settings that aren't modified via GPOs or GPP).
