Wireless profile during image deployment

Q: Wireless profile during image deployment

During the capture process, i have my wireless key set in the profile. Once I deploy the image, the key is no longer there and i have to set up the profile again. Is there a way that this can be done during the deployment, through the customsettings.ini
or a script?

A: Wireless profile during image deployment

1. netsh wlan export profile name=ssidname
This will give you an xml file
2. netsh wlan add profile filename=ssidname.xml
This will import the Wireless profile
This will help

Hi All, new to the forum,

Has anyone had any joy using the DISM image deployment tool,

below is the message i get trying to capture an image

DISM doesn't recognise the command-line option "d:\thinimage.wim"

I've tried the below.

dism /capture-image /capturedir:f:\ /imagefile "d:\thinimage.wim" /name:"MyCompany"

I've checked this over and over and i'm defiantly following the line they require.... any ideas? Thanks.

A:Win 8 Image Deployment

I know nothing about DISM, so please check what I say first...

...but looking at the format of the command line, I wonder if there should be a colon after /imagefile?

so replace
dism /capture-image /capturedir:f:\ /imagefile "d:\thinimage.wim" /name:"MyCompany"

dism /capture-image /capturedir:f:\ /imagefile:"d:\thinimage.wim" /name:"MyCompany"

I have a licensing question regarding the deployement of Windows 7.

We are currently purchasing notebooks that have an OEM key for Windows 7 Pro and have been configuring each by hand which can get really annoying. I want to create an image of Windows 7 and use it for deployement however I'm not too sure about the licensing involved.

First off, you cannot image an OEM version and you need an open license version, correct?

Do I need to purchase a VLK license for each notebook that I want to image to? Or can I just purchase 1 open license and image that to multiple computers since the OEM key is in fact for Windows 7 Professional?

A:Image Deployment of Windows 7

I believe you're going to need to look into VLK if you're intending on using the same key & installation across multiple machines. You "may" be able to get away with buying one 7Pro and then inserting the individual OEM key that is on the individual laptop stickers, however I'm not sure on that one so don't quote me there. I'm sure someone else here does know this answer though so sit tight, some one else will surely be able to answer this.

Aside from the licensing issues, once you get the version of Windows that you'll be installing legally with a licensed key, you should look into windows sysprep. It will cut your distribution time down incredibly using this method rather than setting up each machine individually from scratch.

Hi have a query

i want to dpely windows 7 across around 10 PC's but minimise user downtime, as such i intend to install manually using retail versions of the software then update to the specifications i need. all the final workstations will need to be the same.

i have 3 pc's to roll out, then i will drag 3 in, upgrade, redeploy and so on, thus meaning that noone will loose much productivity to downtime.

whats killing me is that after install, which takes around 30 mins including office and other bits of software, the patching and updating of windows on each machine to latest KB updates is taking forever!! so with say 10-15 new pcs all trying to install updates within few hours its going to slow the network to a stop.

is there anyway i can take one of the pc's i have finished, image the updates and software installs then patch them all onto a new clean install of retail windows 7????

i have looked at all sorts of networkable options such as microsoft system essentials or symantec ghost, but none will allow a stand alone image creation off network that i can tell


thanks in advance for any advice

I work for a large bookstore with a relatively small IT department, and we are looking for a way to image and restore a small number of PCs. Basically, I want to set up a master template PC, build an image of it, then be able to deploy that image over a Microsoft network from a server computer and/or from a bootable CD (pretty standard, I guess).

However, I want to be able to do this without having to install an imaging program on the master PC (preferrably to run the imaging software from a shared drive, because installing the imaging software on the client machines would violate the license agreement) and without booting to DOS from a floppy disk (the server machine doesn't have a floppy drive).

We're considering a few solutions for this: Acronis TrueImage 7, Imagecast 4.6.1, Altiris RapiDeploy, or Norton Ghost 2003. Will any of these solutions perform what we're looking for (I've been through the manuals for each and it seems like they can't add a client agent without booting the client machine into DOS or running the software from the client machine)? Does anyone have any suggestions from personal experience to use these or other products to accomplish this task?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I'm attempting to follow this guide to capture a Windows 7 image:

I have a test PC with Windows 7 installed on it waiting to be captured.

I've installed the MDT 2013 Update 2 and Windows ADK for Windows 10 to my technician PC.  Unlike this guide, however, I have no tree under 'Deployment Shares'.  So I have no option to import an OS.

This seems to be a stumbling block to actually capture an image.  Is there something I'm missing?  Is there something that needs to be configured that I don't know about?  I'm still learning this whole process so it's entirely possible there's
something glaringly obvious I don't see.

Any idea how to avoide the scan disk issue ?

Nope. Windows sees the hard disk "environment" as not being 100% on par with what it used to be. Plus it doesn't hurt to run it after an image deployment like that anyways

I am having a VERY odd issue with Windows XP Pro and Tablet PC Edition.

I have been following Microsoft's Single-Image Deployment Supplemental Guide which discusses single-image deployment and how to use this process to deploy Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 in your organization while using your existing Windows XP Professional image.

I followed the article to a T and imported all the Tablet PC components in the Sysprep directory and then re-syspreped the box. At first once mini-setup finished the system would lock up on the Windows XP splash screen about the 3rd time the progress bar cycled through. So I went to Safe Mode and everything worked like a charm. So just as a troubleshooting step I tried to use Safe Mode with Networking. That locked up at the splash screen in the same spot which lead me to believe it was a networking issue. So I disabled all listed networking adapters and tried to boot into normal mode.

Once I saw "Applying Computer Settings" I thought all was good. So I waited until I saw the standard "Press Cntrl-Alt + Delete to Login" screen. So I hit cntrl alt delete and nothing happend. So I tried moving the mouse, and to my amazment, the entire computer is hard locked. This is happening everytime I reboot the computer into Normal mode and the login screen appears. So I tried to go back into Safe Mode with Networking to test that theory again. Although I am able to get logged into the system the system actually hard lo... Read more

Hi There,

I found this forum thru KariTheFinn's YouTube Videos which are superb! My first post is a problem that hunts me since quite some time now. I startet too more or less ignore it since it was only a problem with one program. But since I switch mail clients it's now also a problem there. But first things first.

I have a Hyper-V Service running on my Windows 10 Machine for toying around. In there I was trying to create my personal perfect Windows 10 Installation with all the Apps, Tools, Settings, etc. I like and want. I did all of this in my created user account Yves. So all the settings from many apps (for example Chrome) are in this user profile. After I was done. I shutdown the Hyper-V Machine Boot up the WindowsPE.iso. And dism the complete machine to a mapped network drive. Than I created a new Hyper-V Machine booted directly into WindowsPE.iso. Diskpartet the complete system like I like. 100MB EFI. 1GB Rescue. 50GB System Partition. Dism the image back to the System Partition and bcdbooted the System Partition. Bootet up and tada System is "almost" like I left it before on the other VM. Only thing missing are for example Chrome extensions and settings. Which I can not figure out why this happens? Newly since I moved from em Client to Outlook 2016. Also Outlook 2016 does not like the dism'ing around. It says .ost file has to be deleted.

Anyone an idea why this is happening and how I can prevent it?

Thanks for your help guys.

I am working on setting up an image deployement solution. The current problem I am having with Acronis Snap Deploy 3.0 is that when I try to deploy an image it deploys normally and Snap Deploy does the extra setup before Windows loads to a logon screen. The problem I am having is after I log in, windows is missing the "Vista" theme and whenever I try to click on anyting (Computer, Documents) It gives me a popup messege that has a title of "Explorer.exe" and in the messege it says "class not registed." I cannot figure out why the image is not working. I am deploying it onto the exact same computer I made the image from. It was a clean install of windows Vista Business.

To make the image I loaded the master computer into the Acronis software using the Acronis PXE server. I then imaged the computer and the image was put directly on the imaging server.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello. I have an issue.

I want to capture an Linux OS custom image or a fresh one and want to use WDS to complete the job. Could it be done?

I know I can use WDS from server to deploy WIN 7 or anyother Win OS to other systems. But can I use the same service to deploy Linux OS to other new systems and how can I go around in capturing the Linux OS image.

I don't want to use any third party application to capture and deploy both WIN and Linux images. I can use SysPrep to capture Windows image, but how do I go about capturing Linux image?

Is there an in-built app for Linux to capture an image like SysPrep (for WIN)???

Thanks for taking the time to read this post. I am attempting to setup a new wireless network model in my home, and am looking for some advice on the proper hardware I need.

I currently have a laptop which I use to connect wirelessly to my network. I previously used a wired-router to connect directly to a cable modem, and would then have all my network devices (Storage, media, etc.) connected to the wired router. I would use a Airport Express to create a wireless signal from this network and connect to my laptop. Worked fine.

In my new home, I'd like to keep a router in my room, which is not where my modem has been installed. What I am looking to do is connect all the above hardware to a separate LAN. I have been looking into using a wireless bridge/access point for this.

In checking out these options, I'm a little confused. Bridges and Access Point are expensive; why are they so expensive when they do less than a router? Also, it is very important the access point can connect to the network wirelessly. I do not want to run wires all over my home, so would like a device that can join a wireless network and connect to my router. I will buy a new router if I have to (one with wireless support) if it has a bridge/repeater/access point mode. Is there a specific feature I should be looking for?

Today, I cannot use the internet and access my personal network devices without changing my network connection from my laptop. This is irritating, as I can't do thing... Read more

Optionally select to use a WSUS server on your local network with the "WSUS..." button.

Any clues?

Was this a Win7 backup image? If it was only made a month ago, could problems which caused you to reimage have already been present? I find that creeping corruption can begin right after install so keep a baseline image for cases like this.

You can try reimaging to see if it is a glitch with the operation or in the image itself. If this fail I would consider clean reinstalling following these steps to get a perfect baseline reinstall, then image it: Reinstalling Windows 7

Let me start out by saying, I HATE Windows 8.  Have to use it as part of my job.  It's okay on the tablet, but god does it suck on a desktop.
I have a Lenovo Tablet running Windows 8 Pro.  I travel with it, and visit various businesses.  I have a couple of bussinesses that DO NOT have DHCP servers on thier networks.  Every device gets a static IP, period end of story.  

If you can help me answer this question then that's great, but I don't need lectures on how to setup networks or how that doesn't make sense or anything else.  They aren't going to change thier networks and I'm not going to start having discussions
with the IT people about how they should setup thier network.
The question of the day is...Can I assign a static IP address to the Wireless profile used at Location A, so that when I'm there and the wireless connects I don't have to manually go in and put in the address for that location.  The goal is to have
the tablet connect at the locations where I need a specific IP address without intervention, while also allowing it use DHCP when connecting at home, or other locations where DHCP is available.
I've looked at couple of utilities and they don't seem to give what I need. 

A:Static IP and Wireless Profile

I am sorry to tell that it cannot be achieved. If you assign an IP address to an adapter, you must change it back to "Auto get IP address" when you need DHCP server to assign IP address.

We have a requirement on our laptops that the Admin user will create a fixed set of wireless profiles but non-Admin users cannot add/remove/modify them.

We can't find a way to keep these profiles locked down so that the users cannot change them. Is there a way to do this with Windows 7 Enterprise? Group Policy perhaps? Thanks!

Hi there,
Im having a problem with my wireless connection. It was working fine for about a month, when suddenly today my connection disconnected. I tried reconnecting to no avail. I kept trying and then this window began popping up when i tried to connect to my linksys: "Another profile is currently being processed. Please try again later." So i tried later... days later... still the same... anyone know what to do? I only have one profile in my setup, so there shouldnt be another profile its trying to connect to.... WHats going on? Anyone know how to fix this so i can get back to connecting to my normal linksys router ?

Intel PROSet/Wireless Another profile is being processed

I also receive the same error.

I have been given an Actiontec MI424WR wireless router by Verizon for FiOS. (I had FiOS at my old place with my own Linksys router and never had this problem)

I have tried everything from disabling/enabling radio to killing all processes other then the most critical and the error keeps popping up. Eventually, Intel PROSet appears to being a new search for networks, but the error comes back. Another laptop in my house does NOT get this error.

Since I am able to post this you can guess that I finally got it working, but what fixed it - I have no clue. Don't get happy for me yet, the error will come back as soon as I restart the computer - I'd bet the ranch on that!

Hi,I have a question on the disabling of auto-connect function of ThinkVantage for one particular profile. I have not been able to find the answer online despite multiple searches, thus I hope you can assist me on this.

I am currently using a Lenovo T400 Thinkpad with Windows XP, though I am unable to find the version of ThinkVantage Access Connections. I have a ThinkVantage profile saved for connecting to my home router, which can be connected using LAN or WLAN. However, whenever I get disconnected from internet (LAN cable accidentally became unplugged, router disconnected for a minute, etc), my ThinkVantage will automatically connect to wireless and render my LAN connection useless with the "Limited or no connectivity message". When this happens, I have to manually disconnect from wireless using ThinkVantage and replug my LAN cable. It's mighty annoying when it disconnects 5 times in half an hour (I have a horrible ISP).

So my question is, is there a way I can set ThinkVantage to disable auto-connect to wireless when I'm in this particular profile? I have searched around the options and tried to disable the Location Switching option, but it didn't work.

Thanks in advance.

As of today, in our domain environment consisting of Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 Enterprise machines, we are experiencing the "User Profile service failed the sign-in - User profile cannot be loaded" error message whenever a user tries to login.
This only affects users new to the particular machine. If they have signed on before and already have a cached account the computer logs them in with no issue. This is occurring on both Win8.1 and Win7 machines. We are an academic institution so this is becoming
a huge problem in our labs. Students generally use different computers so this is popping up very frequently. I have a solution for the issue. It appears that on the non-working machines that the "Default" user profile is corrupt. I have discovered
that if I find a machine, Win8.1 or Win7, doesn't matter, that is allowing first time users to logon I can copy the "Default" user profile and replace the corrupt one. I must first permanently delete the corrupt profile before copying over the new
one. I am doing this over the network by navigating the C:\users\ folder. Even this way is becoming cumbersome though as we have over 1000 computer in labs. I have googled and googled and I keep seeing the same answers offering various solutions, none which

Windows 7 continues to revert back to the old wireless profile despite me deleting all old wireless profiles.
Wireless adapter is Edimax EW-7128g, newest drivers for Windows 7 64bit
First set up a WEP profile the usual manner by connecting using the bottom-right wireless networking widget; "Save this connection", yes.
Works right off the bat, first time
Needed to switch to WPA on router for better security. Same router. Done. Entered new credentials using the same wireless networking widget. Works fine first time, right off the bat.
Computer enters sleep mode overnight.
Upon a wake (or restart, or cold boot) - Windows 7 reverts back to the old WEP profile.
I go into "Manage Wireless Networks" I select the profile from the list, hit DELETE. Removes it from the list. ADD new profile, supply proper WPA credentials, "Save this connection". Works fine. Manage wireless networks displays proper information (WPA security)
Restart, or reboot, or logoff. BOOM. Back to using the old WEP profile!!!
Tried this using Administrator account and user account. Same behavior.
Workaround is to change the security type / credentials or delete & create a new profile every time windows is rebooted/logoff/restart.
I cannot for the life of me figure this out. I am not using the vendor's connection utility. Windows cannot remember the new connection profile and despite me deleting the old one ... continues to revert back to it.

Any ideas?

If the network that you want to create a profile for is not in the list, click Set up a connection or network, click Manually connect to a wireless network, click Next, and then follow the instructions. If you save the network, a profile for the network will be created and stored on your computer. To select specific authentication and security settings, click Change connection settings.

We have users on Windows 7 Enterprise machines.  No one has a roaming profile. Users cannot install programs.  The users move around so they don't use the same machine all the time and there may be 20 profiles on one machine.  They don't
always logout but the machines are restarted once a week at least.   Occasionally we may delete profiles on the machines but this is a remote site so we seldom do.  Users primarily use remote apps. served up either by Citrix or web interface. 
Little is done locally other than printing.  All machines are imaged with the same software. All users do the same thing.  One user in an office of six machines, can only login to three of the machines with a temporary profile.  She has no
profile under Users.  There is no .bak registry entry.  I cannot locate anything in the registry that points to this user.  I checked HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE|SOFTWARE|MICROSOFT|WINDOWSNT|CURRENT VERSION|PROFILELIST.  There were 20 profiles but

Guess I will just re-image the computers although I'd like to figure it out but I don't have the spare time to waste and don't want my user to keep getting the temp profile.  My company won't pay for the support and frankly, in all the years I've
been in IT, I've never had MS resolve one issue for me.  Not worth paying for.  Oh well, thanks for your suggestions.  If I have time to devote to this and figure anything else out, I will post the answer.

I proceeded to another pc in the house running Vista and created an administrator account with the same credentials as the laptop's then copied (mostly I used copy but for a few folders I used the move command) over the network the primary users profile folder. It took two attempts. It failed to connect the first time but succeeded after I returned to the laptop and disabled simple file sharing and gave the laptops administrator's user account I shared the folders from security permissions to all user folders in question.

Hey guys,

Yesterday, I shut down my computer. A few hours later when trying to log back in, I get logged onto a blank profile, which I assume is a temporary profile.

Curiously the ProfileImagePath string under key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\S-1-5-21-842173820-3506557639-1618326103-1004 is pointing to C:\Users\Mike_2.Mike-PC instead of C:\Users\Mike_2, which I assume is a temporary/alternate profile. (which I didn't create)

This has happened before, but usually a few restarts fixed the problem, however, that doesn't seem to be working now.

My question is, is there a way to reassociate the profile with the correct user folder? Or do I have to transfer everything over to a clean profile?

A:Solved: User profile dissasociated from account/logging onto temporary profile?

Its not an association issue, the user profile is corrupt, and is replaced by a temporary one.

Best thing to do is create a new user account, and migrate to that.

I have deleted their account from Active Directory and have then tried to delete their profile from the roaming profiles folder. But when I do this I get the access denied message, the reason being that the file may be open or I do not have sufficient rights. I have also taken ownership of the folder so I have all the correct permissions.

I want to preface this inquiry with the following: this is a home lab environment and does not affect production systems in any way. Any information provided will be tested in a test VM prior to execution on any critical system.
I recently joined my primary home system to my lab domain. I wanted to retain all of the settings and configurations of my local system but use a domain account to login. I followed this migration write-up:
Step by Step : Migrate Local User Profile to Domain User Profile with all Settings

The gist of the migration involves adding the domain user to the ACL for the C:\Users\localUser with Full Control and propagate those permissions through the folder. This step worked without issue. Then, modify the ACL for the HKCU hive by adding the domain
user to the ACL with Full Control and propagate those permissions through the hive. This step appears to work, but some keys cannot be modified. Finally, we change the ProfileImagePath for the domain user SID under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
and reboot.
The change appears to have worked without issue. All of my settings are intact, and the look and feel is as expected. One very significant problem, however, is that the window (explorer.exe) size and location cache is not functioning. If I click on File
Explorer, the window opens as usual, but the layout is using tiles while I prefer the Details view. I change to the details view and make some other changes, clos... Read more

A:Explorer size and location cache no longer works after migrating local profile to domain profile

I figured out my own issue. Don'tcha love it when that happens?
I logged into the affected machine as the domain administrator, and when I loaded the ntuser.dat hive for the affected user, I noticed that the \Software\Classes key didn't exist. It did, however, exist for the logged on user and it appears to correlate
directly to the key under HKU\[SID]_Classes.
On a hunch, I logged back into the affected profile, drilled down to HKU\[SID]_Classes, and when I checked the permissions, I noticed that the domain user did not have explicit permissions to the key and subkeys. I added Full Control permissions, propagated
them through the key and subkeys, rebooted, et voila! Everything is back to the way it should be.

A:Windows Cannot Load The User's Profile But Has Logged On With The Default Profile

Corruption of the user profile can be a pain to sort out, especially if it’s the index file that’s failed. SOMETIMES, however, simply logging off, leaving the computer at the ‘Press Ctrl+Alt+Del’ screen for about 30 seconds or so, then logging in as usual, can solve this without any further intervention, so I’d suggest giving that a go first.

Further suggestions are a bit more involved.

Log in as another user with administrative rights (such as Administrator) and then open the My Computer icon and navigate to the local hard disk and into the Documents and Settings folder. Look there for the folder which has the same name as the user who’s profile cannot be loaded and go into it. You may have to unhide hidden files and folders (from the Tools menu, select Folder Options and then the View tab, then, in the Advanced Settings box, under Hidden Files and Folders select ‘Show hidden files and folders’) and then locate the file NTUSER.DAT and rename it NTUSER.OLD, then log out, and back in as the failed user. This should replace the corrupted file and allow you to log back in.

If that fails for any reason, again, log in as another user with administrative rights (such as Administrator) and then open the My Computer icon and navigate to the local hard disk and into the Documents and Settings folder. Look there for the folder which has the same name as the user who’s profile cannot be loaded and rename the folder; usu... Read more

I can only now get in via F8 options. I tried safe mode, but there is no regedit in safe mode And it won't let me create a new account .

So is there another registry item to change?

I found one microsoft support note which suggests that a new profile needs to be created and the contens of the old profile except .dat files have to be copied in the new profile folders.

However, all my folders in the original profile including MY documents and Favorites are EMPTY.

I am unable to retrieve valuable files. Can anyone suggest a step wise procedure to locate where my files have disappeared.

By the way, I tried system restore operation to restore the system three days backward. yet, everything is the same and the folders are empty. so, i have undone the system restore. thanks

AS AN ADDITIONAL INFO, if it might help, i have discovered rather large "FOUND.000" folders ion"C" drive. the last one has the size 897 mb which is about the same time that the folders and files disappeared. i have read that these foldrrs are similar to .chk files and can be remvoed. however, i am not sure of this in view of the missing data.

I have an issue that I need serious help with. (The user is my boss...nuff said.) He has been using a laptop with windows 7 professional for some time now and recently he reported to me that when he undocks his laptop and takes it on the road (for example) he does not see his desktop icons, quick launch etc... If he saves a file to the desktop for example, it is gone once he logs off or reboots. We recently got him a new laptop running windows 7 enterprise and are still seeing the same issue! Now, we are using roaming profiles in our environment and I am considering moving him to a local profile as this is really the only machine that he uses. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can fix his local profile? I want to say that it either related to GPOs or his user account as this happens on two different machines. As far as redirection, we have his documents redirecting to his home folder but there are not other user policies applying to his account. Thank you for your time and advice in advance!

A:Local profile data not saved locally - roaming profile

The reason this is happening is that he is part of a domain likely, and when you are away from the network the computer cannot login into the Domain. He will have to switch his profile to local.

I am trying to rename a user profile under C:\Users (I am logged into the Administrator profile on my computer), and am getting an error that the folder or file is in use, so I cannot rename it.

I have tried multiple options to fix it after researching online:
I tried ending the "explorer.exe" process, and then restarting it via "new task" in task manager. It was suggested that this would "unlock" the file or folder for a short period of time. It did not work for me.
I tried clearing both my recycle bin and my "Thumbnails" folders from Disk Cleanup. That also did not work for me.
I was going to try to disable thumbnail caching temporarily by following instructions online, but the computer was unable to locate "gpedit.msc".
Could anyone advise? This is a very important step of a process I'm being worked with on in a separate thread and I cannot proceed until I have renamed this file, and am afraid to restart the computer since I've just done a "takeown" command on this Administrator profile.

Hi. I'm having this problem where when I tried to log into my computer it gave me this thing that my user login has failed and a temporary profile had been created. I was looking at other form posts with this problem and going through the steps. But while I'm in safe mode at the moment I still can't get into my administrative account on my computer. It won't let me access it because the profile is corrupted(I'm assuming?)

I was using: User Profile Service failed the sign-in - Fix in Windows 8 this thread to help me. But I'm stuck on step five because it just says: profile image path: c:\users\TEMP which is not my user profile but under the .bak it says my correct profile.
I don't have another admin profile. I'm the only person who uses my computer.
Ugh I don't know what the hell I'm doing I'm terrible at this kinda thing.

When attempting to login to my main profile, after a several minute wait, Windows loads normally, but I receive a notice saying that I have been logged into a temporary profile, which would be deleted upon shutting down.

As far as I can tell, this started happening immediately after switching my cell phone from "LG Software" to "Charge Only" mode, while windows was logging in.

During every bootup, I am now prompted with the following options:

Launch Startup Repair
Start Windows Normally

Upon selecting "Startup Repair", I am immediately shown the error "a required device is inaccessible".
It has just recently stopped giving me the "Startup Repair" option any more so I can't get the exact error code, but I believe it was 0x00000225, or something similar.

I cannot successfully load normal safe mode, or safe mode with networking. They fail with blue screen. I can only load safe mode with command prompt.

I have tried running "sfc /scannow". It finds errors after about 20% but says it is unable to fix them. Attempting to run chkdsk /f does not run on next boot.

It's been a while since I've done a backup, so I'd rather get this profile working again, than have to re-install. I also need to mention that this is an OEM (Dell) copy of windows, so, doing a repair install doesn't seem to be an option, or is it???

Hey all!

I've been experiencing stability problems on/off with my rig, but now they seem to have been stabilising (hurr durr).

I've recently bought a 1TB harddisk and 4 additional GB of Corsairs XMS3 DHX RAM, bringing me up to a total of 8GB.

Now, I tried to install 6 GB first, in tri-channel mode, and it worked fine.
When I installed the remaining two in dual dual-channel mode, however, my profile will not load, and I am given a temporary user profile. All my personal preferences are gone, including firefox bookmarks, desktop shortcuts, start menu preferences etc.

I'm posting a query to corsair as well simultaneously, but do any of you know or have a clue as to what might cause my problem? Or more importantly: how I can fix it?

I ran the memory diagnostics tool included in vista, and it told me I had a memory problem, but did not specify what.

Originally I had all my data files in drive D and only programs in drive C. Somehow my old user profile got corrupted and the Backgound wall paper is not working properly. So I created a new admin profile to fix it but now I have a mess .

After I created a new admin profile and moved the old users folder/files to the new user , I decided to delete the old profile after everything seems to be working properly . When deleting the old profile I elected to save old user files to my desktop ( fortunately) . I now have a very fragmented system . Some of the folder/files are still under my old username in D drive , nothing in my new user name in D drive plus almost all of the folder/files from the old user ( in drive D) are now in a folder on the desktop where windows elected to place them when I elected to save the folders/files. I really need all the old user folders.

I would like to have the Data in either under my old or new username in Drive D instead of fragmented all over the place. I realize I ended up in this situation because I didnt understand fully what windows will do when creating and deleting user profiles.

Please suggest what I have to do to clean up the system?


A:Big Mess after creating new profile and deleting original profile

Before proceeding, I would backup the computer to an external location such as a USB HDD or network location. If you don't have the ability to do this, at least track down all the files you want and copy them to a USB flash drive or other external device

Hi all. I've been building a modest PC so that I can simply run my games emulators through my plasma TV as well as films and music. I'm using the old D: from my other computer which holds all the games, films and music.

After a nightmarish 2 days of hardware problems I finally have XP installed but my current roblem comes when I log on and at the windows startup screen I get the message -

'Windows cannot create temporary profile directory. This may be caused by insufficiant security rights.'

Which is then followed by this message -

'Windows cannot load the user profile but has logged you on with the default profile for the system'

So I am on windows but nothing works because I need administrator right and permissions to run programs like my emulators (or at least to take ownership of them to make them run!) I went to user accounts in the control panel to mess about but any changes I try to make are met with the message -

'Object required'

I have googled the problem and there seems to be absolutely zero information on it. The microsoft site had a small section about part of it but the fix it gave was completely useless and did nothing.

Can anyone here help with this? I'm at my wits end being so close.

The really strange thing about this is as follows:

I have been using the same wireless connection for my laptop since buying my laptop. I've had to Dell factory image reset my machine twice, and all three times (Counting the first time when it was new) I was able to connect and save this without any problems. I was connecting to the internet just fine, but my computer was running extremely slowly (I could not manage to narrow down what the problem was, but I didn't think it was malware, at least not that I could tell) so I decided to Del factory image reset it again, as that had worked in the past, and I had my personal files backed up on an external hardrive (No longer connected).

When I factory image reset the machine, I had nothing connected to the machine, and I haven't connected any devices, installed any programs, or changed any settings since then. Everything works like it's brand new, except I'm getting this 'brand new' error message. Never seen it before. Any idea what's happening, and how I can fix it?

2) I also tried the fix on here:

I have been using my laptop (Vista Home Premium 32 bit) to access my home network for sometime. Today when I tried to connect I was prompted for the network key - even though when I went into my network properties the key/password still seemed to be stored. If I type in the key at the prompt no connection is made (keeps trying to load but eventually get the 'is taking longer than expected to connect' message).

If I go to manage network connections and try to reenter and save the network key I get an error box "windows has encountered an error saving the wireless profile. Specific error: The service has not been started".

I've tried rebooting just in case Windows had got itself twisted - but it hasn't helped.

Does anyone know what service I should be looking for and how I can reinstall it if it's disappeared?

A:"Error Saving the wireless profile"

looks to me as if the problem is with your router, most probably it not sending a proper signal.
try unplugging it and plugging it back and see what happens.

I know this seems too simple but sometimes the simple things are the ones that matter the most.

In windows XP, when you were connected to a domain network (i.e. office in place of work) you had a profile called Profile Template that was shared (being the default template for all/most/what ever users needed). Does windows 7 have profile template sharing, and if so how do you do it? The profile template profile can be used, but with windows 7 professional, we cannot find a way to share the profile in user settings (or whatever setting it is under computer's properties, advanced tab, user profiles settings). Whenever the profile is selected we cannot get the option to share it. Help would be much appreciated how to do so. Thanks.

if he deleted the profile, with out deleting the files its all still there

go to my computer
doulbe click the C ( local disk that the os is installed on)
hit the documents and settings, in here will be all the users profiles
so if you see her log on thats her profile, you can go into and save data needed

you might have to change the folder view to see everything

open explorer, go to tools>folder options>view> change the radio button to show hidden files, and uncheck the hide protected os files and hide extentions.

if the data is here there, you will need a application to recover the data, google getback ntfs

Although I know how to fix it and I have had it crop up before, I've never had it hit so many units in such a short space of time.
I've browsed quite a bit to see if there is some sort of virus/malware that may be causing it but there doesn't seem to be anything out there that might be the culprit.

The battery is no good on my Gateway laptop, so computer will only run a few minutes when unplugged.  I accidently kicked plug loose from wall and didn't realize it; I saw computer was shutting down due to low battery and I quickly plugged it back in, but it was already powering down.  When I re-booted it, it had to run through all the disk-scans and then when it finally booted, it was under temporary profile and not mine.  I tried to follow directions on Microsoft help forum ( to fix corrupted user profile, but their step-by-step instructions don't match up with my computer. 
In particular, MS tells me to create a new profile and copy my old profile to the new one.  I created new profile, but it tells me to copy all files except the following: Ntuser.dat, Ntuser.dat.log, and Ntuser.ini.  On mine, there are 2 Ntuser.dat.log files and I don't have Ntuser.ini.  The other thing I'm not understanding is once I copy them, I can't figure out how to move it all to the new profile.
P.S.  I also tried to change the corrupted profile settings using this method: but had no luck there either.  When logged off/on had the same temporary settings as before.  Plus, the computer is running incredibly slow and locks up a lot when on the internet.  Anytime I have to restart it has to run through...

I was thinking doing a LAN boot and then from there each PC would install XP from the server. What do you have to say?
