Adding config.xml, generated by scanstate.exe /getconfig, to your migration.


After you have fixed the problem with scanstate.exe can't access down level manifests, (http://blogs.msdn.com/alex_semi/archive/2009/12/10/when-upgrading-or-reinstalling-windows-xp-to-windows-7-using-usmt-4-0-to-migrate-system-and-user-state-settings-like-wallpaper-and-network-printer-mappings-are-not-migrated.aspx)


you may found that now it's migrating too much - for instance, the "windows classic" theme is getting migrated from XP and your migrated customers are getting non-aero look of their Windows 7.


To tell it not to migrate the theme, you should use config.xml file. First, create one by running scanstate.exe /genconfig:yourconfig.xml on your source XP machine. Find the "theme" keyword and set migrate="no"


Then, copy captured file to your x86 USMT4 package folder.


So, now, if you use MDT extensions, you should see it under C:\_SMSTaskSequence\USMT\config.xml


Then, you need to set OSDMigrateAdditionalCaptureOptions to /config:"C:\_SMSTaskSequence\USMT\config.xml" in "set variable" step in your Task Sequence right after "Capture Network Settings".

    Remove the theme:

    <Configuration>

    <WindowsComponents>

    <component displayname="Microsoft-Windows-themecpl" migrate="no" ID="http://www.microsoft.com/migration/1.0/migxmlext/cmi/microsoft-windows-themecpl/microsoft-windows-themecpl/settings&quot; />  

    <component displayname="Microsoft-Windows-uxtheme" migrate="no" ID="http://www.microsoft.com/migration/1.0/migxmlext/cmi/microsoft-windows-uxtheme/microsoft-windows-uxtheme/settings&quot; />

    <component displayname="Microsoft-Windows-themeui" migrate="no" ID="http://www.microsoft.com/migration/1.0/migxmlext/cmi/microsoft-windows-themeui/microsoft-windows-themeui/settings&quot; />

    How about Recent programs, In XP recent progreams setting was DISABLED but in windows 7 its got enabled. However after migration from xp to windows 7, the existing user are not able to see recent program list,

    do we need to enable before migration?
