Configuring Windows 7 Default Profile for Image Creation

I'm in the process of testing Snap Deploy 4 before we purchase the product. I've built a new reference Windows 7 Professional PC, installed software on it, and made a bunch of changes and customizations. These include adding IE favorites and start page, desktop icons, background color, etc. I did all of this with my own login credentials, which have local admin privileges.

I then created standalone boot media, and created a master image of that PC. When I deploy that image to a new PC after booting from the boot media and loading the image from a flash drive, any new user account profile does not include all of the changes I made before capturing the image.

How do I get users on the new system to inherit the profile settings that I made before I captured the master image? Without such a method, it would cause a lot of extra work when building each system.

If you could be as detailed as possible, and provide links as necessary, that would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
BB

Dear Beachbum,

How do you build the favorites? in accounts?
you got a website? or can you explain that to me?
I would like to know how you can build in user. verschiillende homepages
and even the desktop background to all users should automatically come, but they can change it later.

I like to hear you.
