How do I manually start the "New User wizard"


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

does anyone of you know how I can manually start the New User Wizard that usually comes up at the end of a Windows 7 installation ? I would like to start that manually at the end of my unattended installation (but later, after WPI has run ...)

I just super wrecked my pc trying to find an answer for you. Let's just thank the stars I have a home server....

x:\Windows\System32\sysprep /oobe will reboot and show wizard. It's slightly different than the one we usually see.

It kept everything intact except for everything stored in user folder. Programs intact also.

Hi Razormoon,

thanks and sorry for making you wreck your PC :-)

I will try this soon.


mhh, seems like sysprep /oobe will not reboot but shutdown the PC. Which is bad for an unattended installation.

Other than that, it worked and the wizard appeared.


Ok, sysprep /oobe /reboot seems to work better :-)
