OK. Thanks for the help

by the way that is not my product key. That is the default key installed if you do not provide a key to the installation process.

I will test it and give you my feedback

No worries, the Autologon sections are identical to the Vista UA values which are covered in depth on this board.

I was thinking, why not use SetupComplete.cmd to enable the Administrator account and force Auto Login. I think it can be done, M$ only disabled the account, is very simple to re-enable. Maybe I would try something like this.

SetupComplete.cmd

Net user administrator /active:yes
Regedit /s %~dp0AUTOLOGIN.REG
NET USER MrJinje /DELETE

AUTOLOGIN.REG

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"DefaultUserName"="Administrator"
"DefaultPassword"=""
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"
"ForceAutoLogon"="1"

Just add an AutoUnattend.xml and change the Net User Delete Script with whatever account name your use.

In theory, this should avoid ever having to login with that account, thus preventing a folder from being created in the users directory.

I am try your instruction and I must say that works!I am look for instruction like this one for a long time!

I must say that you must still write your name,computer name and then when windows boot it boot at administrator account.Then I am go to the control panel-user accounts and there is also my typing user account.

So,we now we only need another script or something to delete my user account. :)

Hmm,maybe I do something wrong with AutoUnattend.xml because I still must type user info and the another user is still in user accounts.

Can you give us some small info how we can do this setup correct?

Try this one, is basically my working AutoUnattend.xml. It's pretty lackluster, but the only prompt you should get is Which partition to format. It is set to install Ultimate, but you can change it if you like.

Search your WAIK folder for Unattend.chm, I use the OPK, so I not sure the exact link, but that file has all the syntax for AutoUnattend.xml

AutoUnattend_MSFN.xml

May I ask if you people use autounattend.xml directly for unattended setups, meaning doing so without the use of MDT or WAIK or whatever 3rd party means?

Big hug for MrJinje because this guide really works!

I am try with this commands in SetupComplete.cmd

SetupComplete.cmd

Net user administrator /active:yes

Regedit /s %~dp0AUTOLOGIN.REG

NET USER MrJinje /DELETE

working like a sharm.The only one user account in control panel is administrator and guest. :thumbup

I sometimes use my sound xml without going through the wsim found in waik. Should I use someone's else xml or making a new one I will then use the wsim.

That's good news, you may need to ensure your machine is secure as poss to prevent an attack though.
