We've created a customized Windows 8.1 Pro installation (including all the programs, settings, and additional user accounts we need). We'd like to deplay this image onto about 90 of our computers, so for starters we used sysprep to generalize that installation. It worked just fine (the command used was: sysprep /oobe /generalize /reboot), the target computer rebooted, device drivers got reinstalled, the login screen appeared with all three accounts we created on the source machine and bam! Everytime we want to log-in using any of those accounts we are greeted by "You have been logged on with a temporary profile" message, despite the fact that corresponding folders exist under d:\Users - which is where we moved it to with autounattend.xml during Windows installation.
Now, my question is, is there any way to maintain existing user accounts/settings when sysprepping a Windows installation? I do know that there's this "copyprofile" option for sysprep, but from what I understand it can only be used to customize default user profile, which is not what we need. Our objective is to maintain each and every aspect of those user accounts and system settings we need down to desktop arrangement and quick launch icons layout. Is there any way to do that?
