Windows 10: Changing registry settings for user profiles and sysprepping

    Changing registry settings for user profiles and sysprepping


    All

    I have been trying - as I did with the Windows 7 image - to change the default user path in the registry to the D drive. As I have been trying, once I change something in the registry, the sysprep appears to fail. Once I restore my changes, the sysprep will work. Can somebody tell me if indeed I can't change anything in the registry for a custom sysprep WIM image or is there a simple trick that might help me out?

    Hi PinkRhino, welcome to Ten Forums.

    Do not use registry to change Users folder location in Windows 10. Simply clean install Windows, boot it to Audit Mode and use an answer file to relocate Users. Step by step instructions in Method One in this tutorial: Move Users Folder Location in Windows 10 Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials .

    Following the instructions, the whole Users folder will be moved to another drive, and all future user profiles will be created on that location.
