I have Enterprise Mobility + Security E5 license. We can setup the time zone which worked for Windows 10 using configuration profile in Intune Devices > Configuration profiles > Profile Name: Prod Time Zone Settings > Platform: Windows 10 & later with Custom Templates > Time Language Settings > Configure Time Zone > New Zealand Standard Time - it worked! Unfortunately I could not set the region, it remains as United States. Could you help to fix the issue?

    Hi, you could do it with Powershell. If you don't how to alter registery with powershell, check my blog: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/intune-advanced-automation-part-1-registry-altering-pavel/

    I have altered part of regional settings via Registery, because OOBE selections does not honor all parts of regional and location settings. This is more of a Windows "bug", rather than Intune Autopilot's fault. I see same behavior, where home user installs Windows and selects our region, part of Windows settings still points to US.
