    Windows 10

    Just did another MDT deployment with the CopyProfile in place and can confirm that search does not work (as expected)

    Drilling into the folder structure, the path[Driveletter]:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache does not exist (more specifically, the INetCache folder does not exist) so it cannot be deleted.

    EDIT: The folder does exist, but cannot be seen in file explorer/Computer even with hidden files turned on.

    On a test machine the 'administrator' account created by MDT did not have access to search
    However a second user account (standard permissions) created via lusrmgr.msc did have access to search
    However another standard user account did not have access, even after deleting the contents of INetCache (contents came back after reboot)

    EDIT 2: Unable to recreate how I got search working for one user - deleting the counters2.dat file from inside INetCache folder for the hidden account default user has not worked.

    EDIT 3: I am an idiot INetCache folder is viewable after turning on hidden system folders/files

    Windows 10

    Just found this: CopyProfile - Windows 10 hardware dev

    Starting with Windows 10, version 1703, this setting can no longer be used in provisioning packages. For more information on changes to the Windows Provisioning Framework, see Windows Provisioning Framework. This setting may have a Configuration Service Provider (CSP) equivalent that can be used instead. To determine if a CSP for this setting exists, see the description below.
    I have no idea what any of that means, but it seems Microsoft have removed "copyprofile" as an option from W10 1703

    And then: Windows Provisioning framework - Windows 10 hardware dev

    In Windows 10, version 1703, the Windows Provisioning Framework and the Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer(WICD) no longer support design time customizations or generating customized images. In Windows 10, version 1703, only runtime settings are available in WPF, and only provisioning packages are generated by the renamed Windows Configuration Designer. This means that Windows Configuration Designer is now a provisioning-only tool that supports ITPros and system administrators. For that reason, we have updated and moved the appropriate topics to TechNet. Please see Provisioning packages for Windows 10.
    If you are customizing Windows 10 desktop devices, you will use Unattend and Windows System Image Manager, along with specialized layout files for Start, Taskbar, and OOBE. For more information see Customizations for Windows 10 desktop devices. In addition, there is a small subset of settings that remain in answer files; those are described in the Configure power settings section.

    No it doesn't mean copyprofile is removed from W10 1703 itself.

    With the first version of Windows 10, Microsoft introduced a different way to configure machines. As well as the method in this tutorial (which existed before Windows 10), they introduced a new tool, called the Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer (WICD), which allowed people to create customized desktop installations in a different way, using something called provisioning packages. For instance you could create a USB-drive installer which would boot up and automatically clean-install a complete new version of Windows on a machine.

    This WICD functionality has now been cut back in version 1703, and the word 'Imaging' removed from the title of the tool.

    As I understand it, this is telling you to use the tools and techniques described in this tutorial, in place of the WICD tool.

    I'm afraid I don't know how to resolve the question on Search though - I'll leave that to Kari.

    Confirmed that deleting C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache, C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCacheLock.dat, as well as C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache from the Administrator account that was created via MDT when the system booted, resolved the search issues for any new users that logged on to the system (both non-domain and domain).Trying to figure out now how to resolve this from MDT, in order to remove this manual stepLoading the WIM file into DISM shows that the C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache is not present.

    Found the solution over at Technet Forums: Windows 10 Creators - sysprep image

    Just a short comment:

    After reading some latest posts in this thread, having tested this now a few days running all possible scenarios, I have no issues with Search / Cortana and UWP apps using any user profile (pre-set or created later) on deployed Windows 10 version 1703 clients (physical and virtual) when CopyProfile is used, regardless of the deployment method (ISO created from captured install.wim for traditional install, deployment with MDT in both workgroup and domain environment, deployment with DISM).

    I must be doing something wrong...

    I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I am wondering 2 things:

    1. In my answer file, I have it creating a local admin account, however I want the password to be set to never expire, is this possible?

    2. My image requires me to choose language and keyboard layout during oobe. It automatically picks English for me but Cortana asks me to confirm. Is there a way to completely bypass this and go straight to the log on page? I'm using version 1703.

    Thanks for making such a great guide, I have used this for many images so far with great success

    Local account passwords do not expire if you (or another admin) have not specifically set them to expire in Group Policies or Local Users and Groups.

    Anyway, if you want to you can also create users in Audit Mode using Local Users and Groups (WIn + R, type lusrmgr.msc and hit Enter). User must change password at next logon (yellow highlight in screenshot) is by default selected for all new users, you must unselect it first and select Password never expires instead:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	image.png 
Views:	25 
Size:	285.1 KB 
ID:	140152

    All users created in Local Users and Groups are standard users by default. When you have created a new user which you want to be an admin, right select it, select Properties then Member Of tag to add user to any group you want to (Administrators, Hyper-V administrators etc.).

    This tutorial is made for private users, the goal being to keep it as simple as possible. That's why for instance I use a Macrium system image in this tutorial for deployment instead of more advanced deployment methods.

    What you are talking is an unattended ("hands-free") installation which requires quite some more work with answer files. That is a good topic for a future tutorial!

    Yes, it is possible and can be done exactly as told on that article you linked to. Personally I think that it is not necessary, especially when talking about private users, home or small networks and Windows 10 which is extremely capable to find out correct drivers by itself.
