Windows 7: the Administrator account and Audit mode

the Administrator account and Audit mode

Hi


In Audit Mode, to install/configure correctly the Windows updates, drivers, softwares, is best to manually activate the Administrator account? If so, how do I do this?

In the passage between the Audit and OOBE mode with the sysprep command, what should I insert in the answer file to make sure that this account is disabled and that its profile is completely removed from the system.


Thanks


Bye

you should be an administrator, to make sure first go to control panel, user accounts it should state underneath your name the account type you have. If you have administrator might i recommend creating a second administrator account and running it off there.

When you boot to Audit Mode, the built-in administrator account is automatically enabled and used, everything you do in Audit Mode is done using said built-in administrator account. Enabling it manually is therefore unnecessary.

When you boot back to OOBE it is again automatically disabled, if it is not manually enabled.

If you use Generalize switch when leaving Audit Mode and booting to OOBE, built-in administrator account is always automatically disabled even if it was manually enabled.

Hi


Before executing the sysprep /generalize /oobe /reboot /unattend:c:\CopyProfile.xml command, I have to run the "disk cleanup" utility of Windows to delete any unnecessary files or the generalize option already performs ​​this work?


Thanks
