    Angry Customizing Windows 8.1 Default Profiles

    Hi all,

    Iv been stuck with this for a while and can't seem to find a solution. I'm creating an image of Windows 8.1 that i want to roll out. But iv hit a wall, with Windows 7 we would copy over the old default profile, with one that we have modified. we would use windows enabler to let us use click the "Copy" button in configure advance user profiles. In Windows 8.1 however the "Copy" button is not there.

    Is there any way that we can copy a new default profile so the users don't have to go through the "Customization page", and have all the setting, shortcuts and look we want them to when they log in, as when the computers delete the user profiles when they shut down.

    Thank you in advance for any help,

    Fritch94

    In Windows 8/8.1 you need to use the copyprofile command as part of your sysprep xml answer file. See here for details:

    Thanks for the help, but from my understanding correctly (No guarantee of that) if i do it this way will the "First logon animation" & "Customisation Screen" show on first logon?

    You can disable that with a GPO

    Computer Config\Policies\Admin Templates\System\logon\Show first sign-in animation
