One thing to be aware of is that the default profile for 'create a new clean profile' comes from !Boot.Choices.Hardware.Blank, whereas 'treat as a new profile based on ...' will in theory copy the profile you were using last time or the one with a configuration nearest to what you have now as use that (it only seems to use the blank profile in my experiments though). It won't use any settings made in Profiles Disabled mode - you start from a hardware unconfigured machine again - though the only part of the OS that uses profiles is the network settings. So if you have any settings you want to retain across all profiles it's best to either copy them from !Boot.Choices.Hardware.Disabled to !Boot.Choices.Hardware.Blank, or better create a first new profile, put them in there, and treat all new profiles as based on this.
