    Probably somewhere in install.wim.

    I'm not really sure, tho.

    Navigate to "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures" and change user and guest images.

    @DPyro THANK YOU. I'm working on an image that we will be distributing on systems here at work and I have been trying to figure this one out myself. Now I just have to figure out how to configure and setup a default theme with no sounds, no screen saver and specified wallpaper.

    You can do that by editing Aero.theme file in X:\Windows\Resources\Themes...open it up with notepad and you'll see locations of default wallpaper and sounds scheme (marked red color)
