    Hello everyone,
    I encounter a fatal error when adding a Response file.
    "winmain: unable to cache unattend..."
    I can not find the solution, an idea?
    Thank you in advance.

    Has anyone noticed issues with applying a theme via group policy when using copy profile (1511 ent)?

    Basically my group policy is fine without copy profile but when I do copy profile my *.theme file just ends up in the recycling bin.

    Any thoughts?

     Build 14257, 14267 & 14271 users please notice:

    warning   Warning
    Build 14257:

    Booting to Audit Mode is not possible in build 14257 due a bug. Sysprep works but only when run from / in normal mode.

    Builds 14267 & 14271:

    Most of the earlier Sysprep bugs seem to be corrected. Booting to Audit Mode works without issues, Sysprep runs flawlessly, generalizing with CopyProfile=TRUE has no issues apart of a minor inconvenience: it leaves the last used user folders (#1 in screenshot below) and recent files (#2) of built-in admin to end user's Quick Access:

    A very simple and fast workaround is to add this batch file to built-in admin's %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup folder in Audit Mode before running Sysprep. Name it as you want to using the .bat extension, I named it RunOnce.bat:
    echo Y | del %appdata%\microsoft\windows\recent\automaticdestinations\*
    del %0
    The batch file explained:
    • echo Y | = Pipes (sends) a letter Y to the command given after the Pipe (|) character
    • del %appdata%\microsoft\windows\recent\automaticdestinations\* = Resets the Quick Access to defaults. This command expects the user to enter either Y for Yes or N for No. As the Y will be in this case piped, user interaction is not needed but instead the Y will be entered automatically
    • del %0 = Deletes the batch file itself after it has been run. Leaving this away, not deleting the batch file, would reset the Quick Access every time the user signs in

    File is now saved in built-in admin's Startup folder, which will be copied among other customizations to Default User Profile when you sysprep with CopyProfile set TRUE using the /generalize switch.

    Now whenever a new user account will be created, be it the initial user created in OOBE or any user created anytime later, the batch will be run once for each user resetting the Quick Access to defaults and then removing itself.

    Other than this minor inconvenience I have not found any whatsoever issues in Audit Mode, Sysprep, generalizing and CopyProfile functions.

    Happy Sysprepping :)

    This is usually a user error. Windows boots automatically to the built-in administrator account only if:

    • The user restarts Windows from Start Menu or WIN + X context menu when in Audit Mode
      • Exiting Audit Mode to OOBE is only possible when the /oobe switch is used with sysprep command. All other restarts will cause Windows to return to Audit Mode using the built-in admin

    • The user boots to Audit Mode with %windir%\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /audit /reboot (or /quit or /shutdown)
      • The command restarts PC immediately (/reboot switch) booting to Audit Mode with built-in admin account
      • The command causes Windows to boot to Audit Mode using the built-in admin account when PC will be started next time (/quit and /shutdown switches)

    • In normal mode, the built-in admin account is activated and set to sign-in automatically

    Other than those reasons, Windows will not boot and sign-in automatically with the built-in admin account.

    I have used the guide and have been successful with getting systems up and set up how I need them. I have, however, come across an issue where on 64-bit machines, Internet Explorer doesn't quite work correctly. It seems to be based around on how Java and Flash are handled. Only when running IE as admin can you use Java and Flash as they are supposed to.

    Any insight on as to why this could be?
