Default User Question



  • So, I have my golden image created and I created that image in audit mode on windows 10, I have the copy profile set to true in my unattend file. My question is, I am not sure if this should be on the fog forum or maybe a windows form but thought I would start here. Also I know I can do some of these items via windows policies but I wanted to keep the policy push to a minimum. This image is in a EDU environment (Just FYI) So the current image sends up and pushes out good. I have fog set to rename the device and add to AD so all that appears good.

    What I am missing is I want to be able to set the desktop icons and the start button app icons so all the students receive this on first login without having to push a windows policy. How can I do this via my golden image? Also anyone have any luck on all new users to make chrome default and adobe default. I had these set in the golden image in audit mode but when a new user logs in it did not remember these settings. The other thing that I would like to do is to remove the xbox, my office, onenote, store, groove music, skype, movies and tv . I found a powershell script that removed these on my golden image in audit mode and ran this but again new domain user login and these come back.

    Thanks in advance.



  • Well after a bunch of research and testing, this little tool works pretty well.

    Defprof

    A little utility that you setup one profile exactly how you want it and then this will copy all those profile settings to the newly added users. Works for domain users as well.



  • @george1421 Thanks for the reply, I was afraid of this. Damn, I had my windows 7 image so nice and easy process.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Windows 10. All the stuff you could do in previous version of Windows… just forget about it (yes I’m bitter about it).

    The copy policy no longer works with win10. For the start menu you need to do that by customizing the start menu on a development computer, exporting the xml file and then importing that xml file during the setupcomplete.cmd actions. The same goes for the file associations for html and pdf files. You will need a limited set of gpo policies to make this work well.

    You can also look into microsoft’s provisioning packages (the MS recommended approach). I can’t speak to this as I have not had to dig into it as of now. But the provisioning packages are installed as part of the sysprep process during initial system startup.
