Importing regtweaks to HKEY_USERS?

Recommended Posts

I found one regtweak that, bizarrely, resides in [HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeliveryOptimization\Settings], but I ran into a dead end when I thought I'd integrate it into the image just like the rest, because these SIDs are not present in the registry by default. There are none under HKLM\WIM_Users when I mount the image and import the registry.

Is there any way to do this or do I have to do it post-installation?

That is the identifier for NT Authority context, which is stored in C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\NTUSER.DAT. So you would need to mount that hive and add keys to it, then unmount.

Hmm. All this registry stuff is confusing as hell, but I thought ntuser.dat is HKEY_CURRENT_USER according to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/sysinfo/registry-hives


Also I am working with a mounted Win image where the paths are different. ntuser.dat is at <mountdir>\Users\Default\NTUSER.DAT, so I really am utterly lost.
