System Starter Group Policy objects (GPOs) are read-only Starter GPOs that provide a baseline of settings for a specific scenario. Like Starter GPOs, they derive from a GPO, provide the ability to store a collection of Administrative Template policy settings in a single object, and can be imported. You can determine whether a Starter GPO is a System Starter GPO by viewing the Starter GPO type on the Details tab of the Starter GPO.

A variety of System Starter GPOs are included with Windows Server® 2008 R2. For information about the recommended use of each System Starter GPO, see the Comment on the Details tab for that Starter GPO.
