Windows 7: Cannot delete domain account after using Sysprep

07 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Cannot delete domain account after using Sysprep


Before I made the sysprep image I joined a domain and also added a domain account. This works just fine when applying the image to a new computer but the one thing that bothers me is that I can't edit any account details.

When checking in Control Panel -> User Accounts -> User Accounts every button is grayed out. I need to be able to edit details such as group&domain belongings.

I have used the Windows 7 WAIK and made an answer file with the Windows System Image Manager to use with sysprep on my source computer.

I wan't to clarify that this is not a domain-related nor a network-related issue since I can freely delete or edit the added domain account on the source computer but after applying the image I can't edit any accounts in Control Panel - User Accounts - User Accounts.

Need more info?
